In a recent interview on UFC.com, The Ultimate Fighter Finalist Mac Danzig stated that he will be dropping to lightweight following TUF 6 Finale, win or lose.
“I really have no business fighting the top five guys at 170, or even the top 10 when it comes down to it,” Danzig told UFC.com. “It’s not that I can’t beat them, but if you put me in with Matt Hughes or Georges St. Pierre 10 times, I’m gonna win a number of those times, but realistically, with all skills being the same, those guys are extremely skilled and much bigger than me. I walk around at 170. Those guys walk around at 190, so it’s not a good idea for me.
“I really want to make a run for a title, and 155 is my weight class. I feel that within a couple of years I can be a world champion at 155.“
