even more powerful and unbeatable compared to the oponents he would be facing i.e. he would be bigger than most where as at heavweight he will face fighters bigger than him

There is no way on this god green earth that Fedor could make 205.

I just cant see it.

If by some miracle he did, then have mercy on the LHW division.

i bigger what do you mean

like size/girth

or height and reach?

The most solid advice I can give to anyone who fights BJ Penn is...do not motivate the guy. Lets face it, BJ although talented, is naturally lazy. Your job is to NOT convince him to step on that treadmill.

if Fedor went LHW, Wanderlei, Rampage, Shogun, Chuck and Tito would go HW

The worse is, im barely joking.

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

Fedor could make LHW in my opinion. Guys like Tito, Rampage and Forrest cut down from around 220, and Fedor is listed as weighing 227 (And weighed in at 230 in his last fight). All that means is Fedor has to drop 10 pounds, and then can drop the rest of the weight in the sauna before the match. Against Ramirez, Forrest reported he weighed 225 pounds in the actual fight (eating and drinking after weigh-ins), so Fedor could still fight around 220+.

This would be an easy feat for a guy like Fedor, who's in incredible shape but does carry around a few extra pounds. You can take a look at his physique and tell he could comfortably drop 10 pounds if he ever needed to.

Basically, what we would see is a nearly identical Fedor fighting the guys in the LHW division. Can you say ****? He would chew up and spit out every one they put in front of him. The guy is used to fighting dudes who are much taller and/or heavier than him. It would be a vacation for him.

on the other hand, Fedor has never faced Muay Thai strikers. Usually HW are strong strikers, not great strikers, Mirko being an exception.

Shogun vs Fedor, id like to see that.

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

Wow, WTF? I thought "cutting down" was what you people suggested for fighters that are losing. Now Fedor too? Wow, you people never cease to amaze me.
