Which Fighter Has The Most To Gain By Changing Weight Class?

Just as it says, Who do you think has the most to gain from changing weight class right now?

I think that Arvloski should cut down to LHW and see what he can do there. I think that he can take his game to the next level at that weight class.

i think brandon vera would have a pretty good shot at being champ if he dropped down.. but he has a good shot where he is. andre is pretty lean as is..i dont know, i dont think it would matter if he lost power though, i think he'd still be stronger than most of the guys in that div. i'd like to see bj drop back down once he settles things with hughes..

I like the BJ idea, he's a terror at any weight class, but he's a demon at LW.

I dont see why anyone would want to go from HW to LHW. One you can cut more and face a tougher champion. Or two you can fight closer to your weight and fight Tim Sylvia whome I think both AA and Vera could beat easier than Liddell.

Yeah, that's more than what I thought. All muscle as well.

sherdog has a little shameless behaviour in the past
Rich Franklin because he is still a LH when he gets into the octagon.

I think it would hurt his credibility to do it now, it would look like he's running from Silva.
