It was a close one between Kenny and Alistair but I had to go with Alistair.

I picked Kenny, but I think Lesnar should be up there. Losing to Mir by submission earlier this year, then owning Herring, then owning Couture is a good show of improvement. Overeem has always been good, he's just better at HW.

I'm going to go with Overeem. Problem with Lesnar is there is not enough information on his capabilities to determined improved, at least from my pov.

I have to go with Mir, I mean Frank Mir winning a fight striking. You can say Nog had whatever problems he was having, but he got dismantled. Frank Mir winning just made the HW division interesting again. Not to mention how fit he was. It maybe too early to tell but I think he's a new fighter.

I think it's because our birth dates are so similar.
