Makes no sense and is an unnecessary risk, but will be awesome to watch while it lasts!
Johnson missed weight TWICE in a row at MW, he has no business there. He is a big LHW at best and maybe even feels uncomfortable to cut down to 205. I guess he walks around not much less than Dos Santos or Verlasquez.

Regarding Johnsons true weight.

Looking at the weigh-ins against Arlovski we can say that Rumble is not a true HW and to be perfectly honest he didn't really look like a huge LHW either.

205lbs is a great weight for him, however i have a feeling that if we see him back in the UFC he may cut to 185lbs if it doesn't start well for him.

Not a good fight for Arlovski if he wants to get back in the UFC. He only needs that 1 somewhat big victory to get the ticket back, Rumble isn't that man.

I excpect Andrei to win the fight though.

205 seems to be a good weight for him, at 185 he had trouble making weight and had to do a catch weight at 197 against Belfort and 195 in his following fight, because he couldn't get down to the MW limit. He walks around 235lbs

This site has a legal live stream going for the WSOF show in an hour or so: Link

They say for N. American fans the stream only works for the prelims and we have to watch the main card fights on NBC Sports, but for non-NA fans the link is supposed to work for the main card too.

I don't really understand your point, i already said 205 is a great weight for him.

But I'll indulge, look at Johnson, it's an absolute disgrace and totally unprofessional on his part to get as high as 235lbs if he was intending to fight at 170lbs (even 185lbs).

The only reason he had a problem with making 185lbs is because he let himself get too big.

My point was to support your point when you said that 205 is the best weight for him. Any weight below would probably just mean trouble for him and wouldn't be a good choice if he intended to compete there.

If fatty KOs Arlovski I will cry

AA by brutal Pitbulling however. He should take this easily. Just can't leave his chin out there.

Watching the first prelim that guy that pulled off a great RNC looks kinda like a Jake Shields doppelganger. And it's always fun to see a fight end with a flying knee, but even better when Bas is calling the action.
