Could KOS drop to LW?

No, its not a rumor, its speculation from me.


I was just wondering, since im not a big KOS fan, if anybody knows what his 'real' weight is, and if he can drop to 155?


When i say im not a KOS fan, it doesnt mean i dont respect KOS's ability in the ring.. the guy went from wrestler to an all around great fighter. Its quite ironic because he took the inverse path that GSP has, who has lately been using his wrestling quite a lot more than before.

IF he can drop to LW, i think KOS would be far more successful, not because GSP is not there at LW(although it helps), but simply because looking at his latest fights, i just think he looks rather small(in size) compared to his opponents.. granted that Alves is an exception in size ,but even Yoshida looked bigger than him.

thoughts?

Bring back knees strikes on grounded opponents.. Give me good arguments for not having them for crying out loud.

No way man. Im pretty sure he wrestled at 173 in college and guys only get bigger the older they get. Losing an extra 15 would be impossible. At 170 he is shredded, I just dont see it.

Yes, he could. He said it himself that he could drop to 155... forget what interview it was though.




What a stud

Yea he could I just doubt he wants to make that cut.

Although I could see him doing it if Fitch or Swick somehow gets the title.

Koscheck walks around at 185-190 and as mentioned is getting older, which makes cutting far more difficult.

He'd be the Thiago Alves of the LW division. He's already one of the bigger WWs.

Yea thats why I dont think 155 is possible. I dont care what he says. He would look shitty at 155.
