I really don't think anyone has any business getting in the cage until they get a blue belt in BJJ, or atleast can hang with blue belts if your gym doesn't promote. So don't worry about it for a while

It depends on how lean you are and if you are expecting to gain more mass. If you stay in the 175 lbs you can compete in the middle weight.

Well obviously you would want to cut as much body fat as possible. (lose the dead weight)Then gain muscle mass to whatever weight weight class you want to achieve.
