Anthony Johnson pass out b4 WI. Should he be 170 or 185?

I heard an interview with Kung Lee (which i will find dat source)& he said Anthony Johnson passed out b4 the weigh ins trying to lose weigh ins but Cung Lee say he will still fight @ 170. Should AJ still fight @ 170 or 185?

I heard that interview too.

It doesn't sound good. At 104 he didn't make the weight and before 106 he passes out.

I think it's time for him to move up.

i put down 170 but if he is passing out reaching 170 now i think it maybe time to move up to 185 .. he may need to be forced tho

Move up.
Deffinetly.
It's not good for his health to do this massive cuts.
I think he would feel more comfortable at 185.

He needs to move up. And right now would be the perfect time. Coming off of a loss a move would be like a new beginning. He could fight someone with talent but not too imposing, someone like Leben or Tim Craeder (sp?)... see how that works for him.

He needs to move up hell if he is a WW then Cungle should be fighting at featherweight or Bantamweight cause he looked tiny next to Rumble.

The guy could be deteriorating by age 40 if he keeps cutting the way he does. I would vote for 185, just because it would make obvious sense for him to work on his SKILLS and not cutting 30-50 lbs in the weeks leading up.

I voted WW. But MW is definately in his future.

If he can still make 170 than let him at it. I think he'd get killed by a lot of MWs without the size advantage he has at 70. There are a lot of good wrestlers and jitz guys at MW so it makes sense for his learning curve, and record to stay at 70 while he can.

I don't think he'll be able to stay there much longer though. As he matures its going to get harder and harder.
