    He'd get his ass eaten up. I don't think he is as good as he thinks he is.

    yeah he isnt as good as he thinks he is. He is in the same position hughes, pulver and a lot of the earlier guys were in not to long ago. They found a formula that works for them and stuck to that formula and never got any better. They dominated because the skill level was low. As the skill level rose they couldnt get any better but every one else was getting better.

    Right now Bantam and feather weight are shallow divisions. You have Faber and Brown in feather weight and thats about it. You look at bantam weight and theres torres and maybe kid yamatto if you think about it.

    i wouldn't compare him to hughes or pulver, both of them were pretty one dimensional, torres has a good striking and is a bbj bb

    torres has an awesome skill set. it's just relatively untested. i think guys like faber and mike brown would take him out. at 155... that's just ridiculous

    :rofl: how the fuck can he seriously advocate for a 125 division?

    that's just a joke.

    If you weigh 125 as an adult male... shoot yourself.

    yeah I can see him cleaning most people out but I really want to see him fight kid yamato and maybee faber at 135 as some kind of super fight.

    Its a shame the lighter weight classes are so under appreciated. I find the lighter the fighters the more skills they have.

    I rekon he will do okay at 155, but it will be the same shit as penn vs gsp if he goes against someone heavier who is equally as good.

    i think he's definitely got the skill set, he'd just get bullied at 155. sherk would throw him out of the ring...

    I could make 125 for a fight without a lot of effort.

    Die.
