It just doesn't make sense, as it seems he is just very good at cutting weight for weigh-ins, then putting all his weight back on.
He has jumped weight classes, but has not "really" jumped up in weight by much at all. Not a significant amount to holler about, anyway.
I agree. But fighting from 106 to 150 successfully is still very impressive. There just aren't many fighters in history who have started that low and were successful even 20lbs north of there. The top 10 and GOAT talk is crazy, but I think a strong case can be made for top 25 to 40 range. It'll be easier to gauge once his career is over.
