Good point, but I just saw KOS looking much bigger and stronger, he probably cut more weight. But I was also thinking about natural weight, and how if you fall below it your physical strength can go off a cliff. For me just with weight training, I find only an extra 5 pounds of body mass to get me to my natural weight can equal huge 10 or 20% gains in strength versus when I'm a little too hungry, and a little too light. Then once you're at that natural weight, yet another 5 or 10 pounds on top of that does not do much at all for one's strength. So I was thinking Diego's natural weight point might be a bit above 170, while KOS is a powerhouse at 170 or Sherk is at 155.
