Speaking on the Anik & Florian podcast, Ray Longo revealed that be believes Chris Weidman should likely move up to the light heavyweight division.

“I really did think the weight cut went really well, but who knows? The brain is the last place to get the fluid when you rehydrate, so again, maybe 205’s a better fit because I don’t see this ever happening in the gym. Ever.
