He's not that big though. He's a true 205er (which makes him a small LHW). He could cut 20 pounds before a fight and do the same thing that Franklin does (if he wanted to drop down). It's amusing really; both Bisping and Franklin walk around at around the same weight but only one has the balls to fight in their proper weight class.
