I think it would be a good idea to actually spell out your words and not post like a 13 year old girl texting her friends.

Arm size doesn't really mean much, you want good core strength and full body strength.

Compound lifts that work many muscle groups at once are best. As well as lots of cardio conditioning.

Have you considered cutting weight to 155? might be easier than trying to build to 185 and cut back down to 170.

Yea I never really thought of that but that probably would be alot better. IF I was to do that what type of meals would you recommended because I know nutrition plays a big part in taking your game to the next level

If you're 5'9~ish I'd strongly suggest aiming for 155. As a fellow 5'9er I just find it so much easier going, a) cutting weight rather than gaining and b) sparring and training with people my weight group, as I am a good kickboxer with decent ground skill the bigger built guys give me trouble.

Just a personal preference but thought I'd let you know my feelings.

If I was to drop to 155 wouldn't I lose all the muscle and strength I have Built up. I don't want to be super skinny

Big arms are very overrated. I'm also 5'9" and about 175lbs currently. If I were to ever fight mma it would be at 155.

I've been bulking for probably 4-6 months, and I gotta say my arms are a lot bigger but I am noticeably slower than I used to be. Not to mention my arms get full of blood fast and takes off even more explosiveness. But I look damn fine as I do it

(might also be the creatine my muscles feel semi water logged sometimes)
