If GSP moved to Light Weight?

Everyone here is talking about GSP having to move to a different weight class to prove the fighter he is, how about if he moves down to light weight to make one of the most epic title fights in UFC history...

Frankie Edgar VS GSP!

5 Rounds of non stop action!

Would people be convinced then?

I mean if he does win then he would have moved to a different weight class, and if he beats the champion there is he the new #1 P4P fighter right?

OR will we all still not be improved by his performance?

Yes, dropping weight class to fight a true 145 lbs guy (after dominating a heavier class) would prove his rank.... That's reverse logic my friend.

GSP Strategy:

jab, jab, takedown, jab, jab, takedown, etc.

Edgar Strategy:

If it were possible for GSP to make LW (Its Not) then he would be a small LW which would mean he had been dominating a heavier weight class than he naturally fits in. So yes if GSP weighed less it would mean P4P he was better.

Dude, the shear size difference between GSP and Edgar is not funny. There is NO chance GSP makes LW - that's funny.

If it were possible for him to make the cut and be healthy i believe it would look alot like GSP Vs Serra 2 and it will end in GSP destroying him.
