Anyway, I don't like the idea of fighters cutting in line just because they cut more weight. If he thinks he can have more success at LW then fine, let him work his way up the ladder at LW. but he doesn't get to start at the top (knowing the UFC, he probably will get someone like Miller though.)

And I call bullshit on him cutting from 175 to fight at 170. That would make him a tiny WW, which he is not.

The fact ia he is a really interesting guy. In the interview he talks about how he is travelling around the world to coach and train after his next fight. Going to Thailand, Europe and Australia to take in as much as he can.

In the interview he also said he'd love the TUF coaching job.so if he did that his profile would skyrocket!

Probably because it took a minute to read and post?

60 seconds out of a 24 hour day isn't that much.

Ebersole always struck me as a decent sized WW.

I think if he makes 155 well then he can be decent. But he just isn't a good enough wrestler to make up for his striking and speed disadvantages.

I'd like to see Ebersole vs. Guillard.

Lol didn't even know that. I've seen one fight of his so I must have missed it.

Ebersole is doing great at welterweight so if he can cut to lightweight he should continue his success. But you never know sometimes its harder to fight the small quicker fighters especially if you lose any strength by cutting down. I always say if it ain't broke don't fix it and hes certainly been doing well at welterweight but if he feels its best for him to cut to lightweight then he should go for it.

Good call. He probably realizes there is no way he can get past the gauntlet of wrestlers at 170lbs. Has Ebersole ever fought at lightweight before? Anyone know?
