I thought WW was a good weight for him, in terms of him not being drained from the weight cut.
But the reality is, i never expected him to achieve great things at WW. That division is full of HUGE *weight-cutters*, who can bully him arounf like a doll.
People who are jumping ahead and calling his return to LW so bad - especially regarding the weight-cut issue - should consider this:
Nate Diaz: 6 ft 0 in (1.83 m) @ 155 lbs (70 kg)
Pablo Garza: 6 ft 1 in (1.85 m) @ 145 lbs (66 kg) - and he hasn't shown proof of being to drained after his weight-cut.
Proof that Diaz could have a more than normal cut to 155, without hurting his energy levels.
