could GSP get down to 155?

He'd be one skinny dude, but I think he'd only be dropping about 30 from his walk-around weight.

If Penn is stuck on a rematch, maybe GSP should come to him this time. Don't know if he'd want to do that, but I think it's theoretically possible and it would give GSP a chance to hold belts in 2 weight classes.

You think GSP only walks around at 185? LMFAO dude

No way in hell GSP could make lightweight unless he made it his career choice and decided to never do WW again.

Not happening. No way, if he did it would sacrifice a ton of muscle and it just wouldnt make sense.

He would have trouble making 155 with cancer for goodness sakes.

If Rumble can make 170 from 220, GSP could make LW. From what I understand, he only drops about 15 or 20 to make weight. That's one reason he's not comfortable going up to 185. I think he could do LW, it's just a matter of planning. I'd rather see that then Penn plumping up again.

I think GSP said himself his only like 187 or something around there. I remember Joe Rogan saying he walks around at like 200 which i dunno i could see it cuz he is a huge welterweight but id rather go with GSP on this one. Anyway no way his making 155... Too much muscle he would have to lose and what does he gain from it anyway?? Id rather he goes to Middle Weight then LightWeight.

He is shredded at weigh-in's now from the dehydration, I really doubt he could go much lower without hurting himself.

Actually, he'd just have to do some major dehydrating. He's not a small WW, but not a huge one either. He's small compared to some of the bigger ones. I don't think it would be easy, but by no means impossible. I don't think he dehydrates much at all before fights.

I think he'd basically look like a smaller version of Vera at LHW.
