To do otherwise is stupid and has nothing to do with being ballsy. If bisping wants to stay at 205 he has to deal with larger guys taking him down and must improve ground defense. If he drops down to 185 hes gonna have quicker guys striking at him and must get better at trading and his own take downs. Either desicion does not reflect on his manhood, its what is best for him as a fighter.
Very well said.
There certainly is a difference between your natural weight and your fighting weight.
