Default Gain muscle at a high bf

Is it possible to gain muscle at a high bodyfat on maintenance calories.

Im around 25 percent bf at 105kg
But i need to stay at 105 to 109kg for my sport
Im hoping to stay in my weight class while add more muscle

So just eat about 2.2g per kg of protein at maintenance calories and i should be fine?

With enough volume in my training of course

You might not gain mass if not in surplus?

What sport do you compete in? What's your training history? What would happen to you if you went below 105kg?

I do a few different combat sports, been weight training for about 7 years but span my wheels through majority of it. If i go below 105kg i drop a weight class and ill lose my speed advantage.

You're probably not going to gain much muscle if you've already been weight training for 7 years.

Do you really have a speed advantage at 25 percent bodyfat? I don't train people for combat sports so my opinion is probably worth about what you paid for it, but I'd be inclined to drop to a lower weight class.

25% bodyfat is the threshold for obesity in men. Hormones, insulin sensitivity, partitioning, and general health markers are sure to be suboptimal.

I would say im intermediate in the weight room even though ive been training for 7 years.

Ill definitely lose my speed advantage if i drop i was just hoping to gain some size then lean out a little while still being in the same weight division.
But if you dont think its possible then thats fine ill just make do.
