Pedro Rizzo at 205 lbs?

I have wanted to see this for a long time. I think that if he lost some body fat and cut the rest down to 205 he could be a serious threat to the LHW division in UFC or Pride. I think as long as he keeps fighting at HW he will never be a top contender again. What does everyone else think?

Hmmm... 41 views and not one response. I guess either no one knows who he is or no one likes him. Oh well...

I just don't think that Rizzo can be a force at either weight. I don't think it'll matter that much.

For real? You honestly don't think that he could be a factor in UFC or Pride's LHW division?

Personaly the only LHW that I believe could give him a hard time right now would be Liddell, Sobral and Vera, if he fights at LHW in the UFC.

In Pride I would say his toughest fights would come from Silva, Rua and Nogueira. Arona would be tough as well.

I can think of alot of guys that he would almost definitely destroy in both organizations.

He'd certainly destroy the lesser known guys, but I don't think that he'd have a shot at the Iceman's belt. I think Chuck's just too dominant.

I think Silva and Nog would both take him pretty easily, but I don't know much about pride.

the thing about Rizzo is that he was very dominant at first because everyone was afraid of standing with him. Over the past 4 years, he's gone 3-4 out of his last fights with the last 2 being by Brutal Stoppage. I think the era where he was dominant has passed him by. A lot of the newer guys coming up are just as skilled (if not more so) than he is, just younger and hungrier.

I don't think cutting weight to get into an even more crowded division is going to be too beneficial for him at this point in time.

It doesn't matter if you agree or disagree... As long as I don't bore you and I spark a moment of thought, my goal is achieved.
