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.“

    I'm looking foward to this guy doing some damage in the lightweight division. He's paid his dues and now I think he's ready to step it up in the UFC. I think he's going to win the Finale too.

    Speer looked like one of the biggest rooks on the show but If he has learned some skills in the last little bit (if he's been training with a good team like they normally do before the finale) he'll win the fight tonight with his size and strength. Danzig is alright i guess, he'd maybe win one or two fights against some of the top lightweights (Sherk, Florian) if he fought them 10 times but give me a break, I wouldn't even give him a Serra-haymaker's chance in winning a fight against Hughes or GSP if he fought them a hundred times. I think a good fight would be Danzig vs Sotiropolous at 155 lbs.

    I was hoping for Mac vs. Georgey Boy, but it didn't happen. I want to say that Mac is going to win tonight but Tommy is such a freak I cant say that his strength and size wont win him the fight. I think as long as Tommy stays off his back on the ground that this will be his night.
