he's so lean as is, i dont see where the excess weight would come off from.
Urijah faber was on the rogan podcast this week and he mentioned something i had never really thought of. He talked about how bigger guys like lesner cutting to 265 is easier for him because he has so much mass that loosing 20lbs is small percentage of his overall weight. guys like that actually have the extra weight, and cutting 10% of their size in a day isnt that hard on their bodies.
george loosing 30-40 pounds on his frame seems crazy to me. maybe with the layoff hes lost some size as is, and with a new routine and diet can come down a bit more and still maintain his athletic edge.
