On the Heavyweight Division: Lesnar, Fedor and What’s Next

I don't do as many big pieces as I used to, just because I no longer have the time. But this is the latest.

Fedor Emelianenko realized his mortality taking on a fighter who was well below what many thought would constitute a serious threat to Emelianenko, and given the relatively recent loss that Fabricio Werdum (14-4-1 MMA, 2-2 UFC, #3 IWMMAR) has to potential title contender Junior Dos Santos (11-1 MMA, 5-0 UFC, #6 IWMMAR), there is some confusion about the standing of Werdum in the sport as a whole. Does his victory over the greatest heavyweight in the world make him among the greatest? Or does it simply mean he was in the right place at the right time? And what’s the significance of that.
