I'm 6 feet tall, with awful standup, very bad td and tdd and bad BJJ skills which are ever increasing tho, my strongest point is submission defense.

Now the plan would probably be train some standup to be able to defend myself and keep working on my BJJ, take a fight against a fighter known for his skills as a wrestler and has a history of going to decisions, then come with a flurry of strikes and "slipping", trying to bait them to come into my guard, then i can use defensive BJJ to encourage them to just lay on me.

i would probably go against Guida or Tyson Griffin, and try to survive the round on the ground.
Im not sure if Guida or Griffin would be the guys to try it against. For one, they are both freakishly gifted dudes. Guida pushes a pace that can break anyone and is one of the strongest guys ever and Tyson has good standup and you would def. have to worry about him knocking you out. I would go with someone more like shannon gugerty or someone not so talented and well rounded.

Straight to the ground with Guida or Griffin is a bad idea.

It is, but you'd never see anyone in any weightclass (except heavyweight) miss the max weight by 10-14lbs.

I don't think it quite works that easily man lol. You'd have to "bulk up" to at least 195-200lbs, then dehydrate yourself with the cut to 185, and I really don't see that making much sense cardio-wise when you're 5'7".

Judging by what you're telling us of yourself physically, you'd have a much better chance at welterweight, you'd be at a huge disadvantage against naturally larger MWs.

you sound perfect for LW.

if you try to move up to MW you're going to get rocked by the reach advantage all day long.

Consider I'm 6'0" and walk at 215 and make MW. I'm a little heavy but most of the MW I know cut from 205ish and all of them are 5'10" plus.

Not even just that, he'd be completely overpowered by much larger guys inside the clinch. But I do agree, his stature aligns him more with Matt Serra than a GSP or Anderson Silva.
