Affliction can indeed pull "best HW card ever" like they did with "Banned", but ufc has so many more interesting guys overall even if all of them aren't main even material yet. Hell, without Fedor Affliction can't even hold an event at all, shows how weak their division overall is.

i really dont understand why big timmy gets put down so much as a fighter around here
I hate the guy as much as anyone but he poses a serious problem to any HW out there

I agree that the top of the Affliction division is way better. However Affliction has little depth to their division. As others have said what's the future look like after Fedor vs Arlovski/Barnett. Do we have to watch Fedor vs Rothwell? In all honesty I don't think that they'll be doing mma ppvs that long. Also I find it funny that most people are already counting Werdum in the Affliction column. People are saying that dos Santos shouldn't be a top 10 HW for beating a top 10 HW like Werdum, but Rothwell who has never beaten a top 10 HW should? The bottom line is that the HW division lacks talent as a whole.

Putting DREAM in there was not really necessary, IMO Overeem (maybe Sergei) are the only ones I consider near the top 10.

As far as depth, UFC has it...As far as "creme de la creme" Affliction no doubt.

Affliction has the better current crop of HW's but the roster outside of Rothwell is long established talent that has peaked out so to say while the UFC's division is currently weaker they have a vast group of very promising up and coming fighters, there are few current greats in the HW division and I kind of look at it as Affliction has the stars of yesterday and the UFC the stars of tommorow.

There's also Fedor vs. Aleks. Hell we could possibly see Werdum in Affliction. Fedor vs. Werdum would be interesting.

But believe it or not Affliction could make a lot of other interesting match-ups that doesn't involve Fedor.

We could see fights like...
Barnett vs. Sylvia
Aleks vs. Arlovski
Barnett vs. Aleks 2
Sylvia vs. Aleks (yes people do like watching Big Tim)
Arlovski vs. Rizzo 2 (Some people might get off on this rematch)

Also with the possibility of Werdum coming to Affliction we could see..
Aleks vs. Werdum
Barnet vs. Werdum
Sylvia vs. Werdum
