Default Florian will move to 155 after bad weight cuts

Recently Florian opened up on that subject as well as his fights at featherweight, “Dropping to the Featherweight division was way too much for my body to handle. The Diego Nunes fight was the worst I've ever felt on a weigh-in day. Luckily, I felt better on fight day and was able to pull out a victory. But, against Aldo it was a brutal weight cut, and I really didn't feel too great heading into the fight. In result, I had some medical issues I had to deal with. I had a thyroid issue that was based on the drastic weight loss. Those are the things you kind of ignore as a fighter, but it became very real to me after the fight. I'll now be moving and staying at Lightweight." – for more see BleacherReport.com

I agree. Why do people have to be a champion? It is a great goal but it is nice to retire as a loved fighter who has been in great fights, maybe upset a couple of prospects and if the stars aline you were a champ once upon a time.

Hardly surprised. He's like the incredible shrinking man.

I think he's ducking the potential superfight with Cyborg.
