Dropping from 205 to 185 is probably the most difficult cut in MMA. I cannot see him having as much success at MW as LHW.

As someone said before, could and would are different things.
He could very well cut to 185, and I could see him being a force in this division. Hell Kenny Florian was able to make 145!
But he never will...

I think he could for sure, he's smaller than many of the 185ers. I've actually been thinking of this since the Jones fight where he looked like a midget. It would be a great move and he would be a wrecking-machine at 185.

I am however pretty sure he never will, the guy enjoys his food it seems.

Sadly I think this is the reason for alot of skilled fighters not making it in the UFC with big strong wrestlers who are used to cutting crazy amounts of weight.
It's the same thing with Sexyama & some other fighters as well. I mean Rumble is pretty much the same size as Shogun if not bigger and he fights at two weightclasses below him.

A man with Shoguns physique can easily make the cut to 185, that been said, Shogun can't.

Shogun could make 185 a lot easier than a lot of 185ers. I heard his wife once caught him after he checked into a hotel room near their home. She found him blacked out with empty tubes of chocolate chip cookie dough and burger wrappers all around him.
With a dejected shameful look on his eye...

I think he could certainly make the weight cut if he really tried too, he's not a big LHW at all. That being said, I don't think he is at a disadvange (exception being JBJ) fighting LHW fighters. He has fought larger LHW's before.
