I say at HW, Anderson is too in over his head. At LHW, I think that this would be a ridiculously intertaining fight. But Fedor loves eating too much to cut weight

I think Anderson could end up weighing pretty close to 235lbs if he were to dedicate himself to making the move.
I have a dispute with your comment. It's not that Fedor is a small HW, it's just that Brock is a HUGE
heavyweight. Fedor is a medium sized HW, but in reality if his body didn't have as much fat he would be a small one.
I agree that Anderson could get up to that weight, however, if he did, his career as a middleweight would be done, Once adding that much muscle/weight, he wouldn't be able to make it back down to 185. And seeing as he wants to finish his career at MW, I don't see him making the effort to gain weight. If he fought heavyweight I think he would come in around the size Vera used to
