All of these guys are natural winners who want to be number one but there can only be one number one, it is the double edge sword.

Kg would definitely become ww champ if he made the weight u look at his legs they’re waaaayyy to small compared to all the middle weights he faces..he says he can’t make 170 but if till can or if usman can he definitely can he just needs to get more disciplined

Half the interview is about getting his first win in nearly three years, which most fighters are more than happy to express, then the other half is about techniques, training and opponents. Its the answers that the questions lead to is what is important, or do you want all interviews to only be rudimentary robotic 'technique' only responses from the interviewee's without being able to express their personalities?

@Najim Mahamdy Yeah, You are. He was conceived in Mexico by Mexican parents but his mom crossed the border to have him here in the United states. So he is very much Mexican American. Much like GSP is French Canadian and Paul Felder is Irish American.

@Reggie Shack yes for the hydration test. One weight class per 10pounds instead of 15 would make 10 weight classes instead of 8, i think it's completely possible with the growing number of talents in MMA
