Last week we witnessed the career resurgence of UFC and Pancrase veteran Nate Marquardt when he managed to win the Strikeforce Welterweight title against the very tough Tyron Woodley. By doing so, "The Great" was able to silence all doubters and prove that he has made the right decision of moving down one weight class from his original division. 

Crossing from one weight class to another is not a rare occurrence in MMA nowadays. Although difficult weight cut is an ideal reason, there are those who, like Marquardt, consider dropping or climbing a weight class for a golden opportunity of winning a world title.

This article lists the top six fighters who are likely to move up or down in weight class and have a good chance of winning the belt at another division.
