“Right now I have a couple months off, so I’ve actually been toying with the idea of maybe going down a weight class. Since I don’t have a fight for a couple months, I’ve just been watching what I eat and see how my body without trying to put size on; what my natural weight will fall now at now since I have lifted a lot lately to add size. I’m kind of curious where I think I would fall at. Because some of the guys I train with that are light heavyweight, bone structures are the same. Sometimes I stand next to Forrest and I think I’m in the wrong weight class.”
That doesn’t even seem possible considering Mir has been fighting anywhere from 245 to 265 in recent years, but if he can get down to 205 without killing himself, more power to him.
