    no...

    "GV: You fought in the 93-kilogram [205-pound] weight class in PRIDE a few years ago. Did you consider fighting in this weight class in the UFC?
    AS: When I fought in PRIDE, there was no under 83-kilogram weight class, so I had to fight under 93 kilograms. UFC offered me to fight in this weight class [185 pounds], so I play there. Everybody has their own problems, and my problems are all under 83 kilograms. But if I have to fight against the light heavyweights, I'll do this. My regular weight is <B>97 kilograms;</B> so to reach 93 will be easy for me. "

  3. Wanderlei isn't much heavier, if at all.

    and for the record, that isnt the weight he enters the ring at. at least I highly doubt it. he cuts over a longer period of time and only drops (i believe) 5 pounds of water weight before a fight.

    Seriously, Henderson should fight him, he's the only guy that appears to have a shot right now.

    That has to be a typo. 87 kg makes a lot more sense than 97 kg. Also, he says, "if I have to fight against the light heavyweights, I'll do this. My regular weight is 97 kilograms; so to reach 93 will be easy for me. " Reach suggests having to gain weight, not cut.

    And secondarily, I have met him during an event he was not fighting in. There is NO WAY he is 213 pounds, I walk around between 185 and 190 and I would have guessed he was near my weight.

    I thought Rich walked around at well over 210? I could see Anderson walking around at 213 when he isn't fighting, and just doing a slow cut to 185. He's a tall dude, and is looking bigger for every fight.

    This is true. I haven't had to cut weight, so it's pretty foreign to me.
