Drop to Light Heavyweight(205) but if you think you can make it go for Middleweight(185) and Heavyweight should be ok aswell seeing as Randy is only 100kg.

It is better if you drop not gain.

Don't move around in weight divisions and try to find the easiest, get into the division you feel best in and make it yours.

Point of that...go in what ever weight division you feel best in.

Are you a solid 160lbs or could you lose some body fat? If you have fat to lose you can even go lower than 155. My goal right now is 155lbs because I was 185lbs, now 170lbs and still have plenty of body fat to trim. I feel if I get to 165lbs walk around weight I will be able to cut to 155lbs with ease before fights.
