hrmm thats a weird question... i'd recommend staying close to your natural weight, however you should prob cut down to 185. your still at a disadvantage but its small, if ur a better fighter than the guy ur fighting and your in better shape and stronger it wont mean anything that hes taller and has more reach.

Yeah, I would say stop lifting so much and slim down to a natural 180 ish and cut down to WW.
You're pretty short for a LHW.

The LHW's I train with are all up over 6 feet by a few inches, you would have a hard time dealing with a 6 or 7 inch difference.

Keep lifting if you want but try to drop to 185(Middleweight) that sounds like a good division for you.

Fight at 185, try to lose fat(if you have any) and maybe some muscle mass.

oh man....how much extra weight are we talking about? like if you can stand to lose like 15 pounds even before cutting you should do that first...just take the 2-3 months to lose it for good then you could prob cut to ww....you could prob dom too since you're a powerlifter you'd have sicko throws and slams
