Idk if Vitor is barley making the weight but he seems to always make it. Vitor also seemed much smaller in his bout against Rumble so idk how well he would fair modern day with LHW fighters. He would for sure have the speed and boxing advantage but he has that over most middle weights. I think Vitor and Anderson should fight again before Vitor decides to change weight i don't see many people besides Anderson giving Vitor problems at 185.
I agree with this for the most but would like to add Vitor has dropped a lot of the muscle mass that he once sported in youth in order to consistently and comfortably make MW. Just look at pictures from him in his early 20's versus now and you can tell there is at least 20lbs of muscle difference. I'd be interested in seeing a bulked up prime Vitor versus Jones and think he'd stand an awesome chance. It'd be hard to finish him on the ground and standing there is no way he wouldn't blitz through Jones' reach and has more than ample power to blow him away with one or two good swarms.
