right and if that was the case why would he divulge that information to Pacs team? Maybe Pacs team was banking on that and have redirected their strategy after hearing that. All I am saying is it would not be a bad idea if he has been able to retain his speed and come in heavier. Obviously this is not the norm as most fighters lose speed as they go up in weight but JMM now has a S&C coach so maybe they figured it out. Imagine a JMM who can be heavier and still keep his speed. It would only be bad for Pac.
