Um... Have you checked out the rest of the UFC Heavyweight division? Yeah, the best division in the world - imported from five years ago.

Get real.

The blind love for pride on this forum is astounding. Pride put on one hell of a show, but the competition level was lacking. Three of the top five heavyweights from pride have come to the ufc and not had tremendous success. Herring, Crocop, and Nog havent done anything special. Nog is two and one with a loss to Mir. Crocop has looked awful. Herring isnt even a gatekeeper. Heres another "quality" pride guy that came to the ufc and couldnt hack it, werdum. Hey, the "imported heavyweight division" isnt really doing so hott.

Barnett isnt worth a shit without roids, overreem hasnt beaten any worth a damn heavyweights. Alexander usually looks good, but he hasnt faced top competition in awhile.

Yup, let's ignore the age, the difference between the ring and the cage and how well the older UFC fighters did in Pride and how badly the former UFC top HW that failed in the ring.

This is ******* insane dude. Hey, wanna sig bet me with Randy and Nog since them Pride fighters are so untalented?

LOL! Yup, when you only watch the UFC and the rankings in the top 10, how could you be wrong?! Dude, get ******* real, just because you haven;t heard of a bunch of top HWs doesn't mean they don;t exist. But wait, they aren't in the UFC!? They must suck!!12134321413 give me a break dude.

I can promise you that ive watched as many pride fights as ive watched ufc fights. The talent level is worlds apart. The facts pretty well speak for themselves.

Any conceivable way you look at it:

UFC >>>>>>>>>> Pride
How can I argue with "Pride's talent has gone to the UFC"? Besides that, M-1/Strikeforce....every top HW there would give any of the top 10 HWs in the UFC a ******* real hard timne.

I dont know that I care where the talent came from, I do know that from top to bottom there is no heavyweight division with more depth.

I dont know why people keep bringing Barnett up, the guy doesn't even have a license, I seriously doubt he's ever going to fight in a sanctioned event in america again(sadly). Overeem's good, Id love to see him in the UFC but Aleksander is lacking and doesn't even make the top 15 of HW fighters by most accounts.

Regardless you're still cherrypicking the top of other promotions, lets compare heavyweight division to heavyweight division and I think you'll see that even with the holes it has the UFC is the most complete HW division in MMA.

You can rank Barnett if you want there is just no point to it IMO, Fedor and Overeem belong in the top ten but that leaves 7 fighters (IMO) from the UFC and as you move farther down the list its almost all UFC fighters. In the top 20 id say there are 8 non-ufc fighters and the only reason why this matters is for a fighter to move up or keep his ranking (if you're big on rankings) is to fight another ranked fighter.
