“Max is a grown man and we need to talk,” White said in the UFC 231 post-fight press conference. “But I’d like to see Max go to ‘55 now.
“I think that the guy’s 27 going on 28 years old, he’s in the prime of his life, never looked better. Continues to improve with every single fight that he’s in and I think he’s done everything he can do at ‘45. Why keep cutting that weight? I think there’s some big things for him at ‘55.”
