Fighters you'd like to see at a different weight class

Sometimes when i see guys fighting at a weight that does'nt seem to suit them it bothers me, and sometimes intriguing matchups make us all want fighters to move up or down in weight. Who are some people you'd like to see moved up or down in weight and for what reasons?

I'd love to see sean sherk fighting at welterweight again, as i feel he'd be one of the top competitors at that weight class, and i believe his only loss there was a decision to matt hughes who is no slouch.

yes he is a hell of a fighter, but like u said there is alot of good competition in welterweight. he is actually 34-2 he also lost to georges rush st pierre in a brutal TKO. I think thats one reason he dropped down weight because he can be a champ in lw.

He also lost to George St. Pierre at that weight. Those are his only two loses in his entire career.

very true. i think randy looks healthier at hw as well. If your frame can handle it and you fight the best heavier, I say why not do so.

There is to much talent in the WW. division and I don't know why he would leave LW when he holds the title. I would like to see CroCop go down to LHW class and give Chuck a decent challenge. Or maybe even see the Chuck vs Franklin fight. And I'm always hearing GSP and Hughes say there going to be jumping weight classes to hold multiple belts so I believe you will be seeing this trend catch on soon.

I would not mind seeing GSP move up to middle weight and see how he does against a little bigger guys. GSP vs Silva or GSP vs Franklin are very intriguing

Liddell at HW because who's left to fight at LHW (besides Rampage)?

I was actually thinking Jason Macdonald should go to LHW. He has a big enough frame and with some serious weightlifting he could be big enough and strong enough to compete

eventhough hes won his three fight in the UFC at middleweight, I think Kampmann might do a little better at welterweight against smaller guys.

He seemed to lack some power against Leites and especially aginst Mcfedries...

Fun trivia: In danish "kamp" means "match" or "fight". So Martin Kampmann really lives up to his name.
