Who do you think are some of the largest fighters at this weight? because of cutting weight or other reasons.
Id have to say...

Chuck Liddell - a HW in actuality, I think he cuts the most weight out of everybody
Tito Ortiz - pretty close second to Chuck
Sokodjou - just looks big
H. Alexander - looks like he cuts a lot but he stil stinks.

Griffin and Jackson cut a good amount. They bulked up a lot waiting for their fight. Randy cut a significant amount when he fought at LHW. Tito made LHW because he has no legs and just an upperbody. Arona is definitely up there too.

Oh yeah, forgot about Randy, but I dont consider him a pure LHW fighter.

Also, good point about the legs. Guys like Barnett, Crocop, Rizzo are true heavies cause they have those meaty legs, which makes it very tough to cut to 205.

Lambert also still looks to me like he has some water weight he could cut off as well, but i never see him at 185 in the future

actually Wanderlei looks really big since he's only 5' 11" he is really strong. Every picture you see of him he has his vaines popping out and it makes him look like my grandpa. But he is really strong.

See this is the main problem with the lack of HW's. Nowadays a true heavyweight is near 250 prob more and guys below this are cutting down.
Before cutting Chuck, Tito, Page, Irvin, Randy, Vera, Bonnar, Griffin all weigh near 230

Man, randy is up to at least 240, which gives people a huge amount of respect for him. Cutting that much cannot be easy.

i remember watching all access or countdown to shogun vs griffin... something spotlighting griffin. i remeber forrest saying that he doesnt like watching tv. all he cares about is training. but i dont know...

its probably eaasier to say something like that to try to keep a mental edge on ur opponets so who knows :lol: he looked fuckn huge on TUF though

Vera is overrated and did not look strong or fit at hw and still does not as lhw. He is like 6foot 3 which is pretty tall but bonner is 6 foot 4 and thicker
