Drop a weightclass, or go up
 
Are there any fighters that yall feel should drop a weight class or go up a weight class to win more fights? I think Forrest Griffin would do better if he worked on his take down attempts and made his punches more precise and dropped down. He could be a Chuck Liddell of the Middleweights.

BJ Penn should go back to being a lightweight! Also, this will probably sound stupid but I'll say it anyways! I think Matt Hughes should consider becoming a middleweight! He practically did everything in the welterweight division so maybe he should try taking on some middleweights! Just a thought!

Thats a good idea, but I think Hughes would come into a problem with the reach if he were to go up because most everyone would have a reach advantage over him I think. But once it went to the ground, I dont think Rich Franklin could take him.

Agreed :thumbsup:

I agree Penn should go back down. I don't think it would be hard for him to do:dunno: Wouldn't he pretty much kill the lightweight division. If he does what he does as WW why not own the Lightweights:dunno:

Franklin would own Hughes, no question in my mind..and Forrest has to cut like 15-20 pound to make LHW, he could never make middleweight hes 6'3 and has zero fat

Shamrock.

If he goes up to heavyweight he can do good.

The UFC has chumps in their heavyweight division, and Ken sucks at LHW.

I bet Arlovski could make LHW, and I think he could compete there too.

Brandon Vera has been fighting as a heavy and wants to drop to LHW, he's already called out Liddell.

Penn could obviously make and dominate at lightweight.

Josh Haynes (the fat kid... with blue hair) fights at 185, and needs to be at 155. I don't ever see him wearing the belt, but i see him giving us some crazy fights.

Franklin is a big guy i here he walks around anywhere from 205 to 215 I think he should move up because his compitition in slim in middleweight division.

No way Matt Hughes would fight Franklin though (they're boys). I disagree with your take ob BJ simply b/c I dont think there would be any competition for him in that weight class.
