It reminded me of Burns/Hooker really. Tough weight cut and then get slept early.

Wish guys like them would just move up.

@bruce and @snake your both dead on the money.
I couldn't agree more. 

I think it was whittaker who said when he moved up and stoped making drastic weight cuts he never felt or fought better.
