Cro Cop at Light Heavyweight?

I don't know if this has been brought up before, but has anyone thought about Cro Cop fighting at 205? What, he usually goes around 220 anyway?

I knows its easy to play armchair Fighter... but I just see the Light Heavyweight division more of a strikers paradise. I have no doubt Mirko would tee off of people like Evans, Wandy or Rampage at 205... whats stopping him?

I think there are better strikers at LHW than HW, so I don't know how that would happen. Also, I honestly don't think it has to do with the weight class, Cro Cop doesn't seem like the fighter he used to be, but hopefully that changes soon.

Thats what i meant. More fighters whose game plan revolves around standing up the whole match. Good for Mirko. More of a K1 match to his liking.

I really wish he did better in the UFC. Looked like he was out of his element, idk.

Mirko has stated numerous times that he can't make 205 and doesn't want to.

To elaborate more on this it basically comes down to his big leg/thigh muscles, he just cant lose that weight.

Mirko is done, finished, I dont know why but there is no fire in his eyes and no hunger anymore, its like somebody reached in and stole his very soul, He shouldnt move to LHW he should retire before he goes Shamrock.
