That would be great, considering he would need to be better to compete at 155. 155 is the deepest, most skilled, and arguably the most athletic division in the sport. I think Ferguson, Khabib, and Lee would all give him fits. Holloway is probably a top 10 guy at LW, but I don't see him getting the belt with who else is currently at the top.

I think if he transitioned well he'd probably beat lee and Tony. It depends if they straight up outmuscle him or not. If not, and his TD holds up, he likely beats both. Prob the only guy who can match Ferguson's Cardio out there really.Doubt he beats Khabib though. Nurmy is a big ass FW and I don't think anyone can stay on their feet against him.

The time is definitely right for him to move up. So many great fights for him at lightweight.
