    I would love to see Romero/DC. Shame we can't get DC/Goose followed by DC fighting the winner of Oez/Romero. That would be a fun lineup.

    If he can't make weight it's the thing to do but I don't see him being as successful at LHW

    Really? It's such a much weaker division than MW though, I think he'll be Top 3.

    His speed, power, and wrestling will translate well in the division.

    His only loss pre-UFC was at LHW. I'm just concerned that he's going to be giving up too much size at LHW.

    Damnit I was gonna post this. I think 205 is the weakest it's been in a while. Romero ain't getting younger, he wants a legitimate run now would be the time to do it.

    A win over Gus would net him a title shot with one fight in the division.

    He was only off 185 by .2 last time and seems like some issue in how the extra weight cut time was handled. I think he is too small for 205 but then again, I thought Whittaker & Gastelum were both too small to fight at 185....

    I think there is a very good chance he would beat Gus.
    I would pick Yoel to win.

    Hugs.

    I wonder if (secretly dream inappropriately of) Yoel could be more active during the fights without such a big weight cut. He's a thick guy, I'm sure he's well over 200. Maybe if he's not so dehydrated, he'll get even better...

    All things being equal I would like to see someone mop the floor with Yoel at 205. I don't really care who.
