I actually Can See Gillispie winning 157 although I don't think that he will. I say this because he's not a wrestler that relies heavily on his strength. Usually wrestlers who do, don't fair as well at a higher weight class. He's more of wrestler to rely on Speed, quickness and technique. As long as the extra 8 pounds don't slow him down, I don't see him being any worse off at 157. Does that mean he'll win a National Championship? No, but change a move here or there, he could have easily finished 2nd or 3rd last year too.
