This is kind of what I was thinking of. What if I train for mass but don't eat more than is comfortable and don't try to stay above a certain weight?
You'll get shredded if you really hit it hard.
Anecdotally, powerlifting burns more calories than a mass building protocol, but if you go by unit of training time I don't see how the higher volume won't consume more calories.
All the usual precautions re training well past the lactate threshold - is easy to burn out if you aren't careful with how you structure. You'll wind up craving carbs and protein. At some point you just won't have the energy to train that way and will have to reduce intensity, volume or both. You will have lost some lbs by the time that happens.
