The thing is, Josh and Frank really, really hate each other. But Frank has always pretty much written Josh off. And just called him Gay. Now Josh wants to come up in weight, lets see him try to carry that weight in a fight. That's a 30 pound difference he's gonna be pushing.
I think the problem will be two fold for Josh. He may be able to gain weight, but I don't think he will get as strong as Frank. Also Frank will have a very definite reach advantage.

I really don't think any of the top LW need to worry about Noons. If he didn't cut Diaz, I don't think he would even be the champion. I think Thompson, Melendez, or Diaz would beat him. The guy has no ground game.

No argument here. I think Thompson loses by ass whoopin in round 1.
