Well, guess it is Velasquez vs JDS again. No one else seems to be in the same class at HW.
I would put Werdum right up there with either one of them and think far to many people are sleeping on the guy. Werdum is a long HW who has developed very good stand and a nasty thai clinch to go with the best ground game in the division bar none. Werdum is elite and should have been fighting Cain instead of Bigfoot.

Serious...I want Hunt to knock Big Foot's head off. There are two people I enjoy seeing getting beat down.

2.) Mir
1.) Big Foot

PS: Hunt would rock Schaub's world. Actually Nelson vs Hunt would be interesting or Pat Barry.

Have to live by my principles. You are absolutely right here.

Had Bigfoot of tried to do more with his hands he would have just lost his balance fallen over and made it even easier for Velasquez to tee off on him.

Stalling has its place in mma, Bigfoot was just waiting for Velasquez to slow down that little bit so he could work back to his feet.

I agree with similar stoppages when the fighter is obviously crumpling from the shots but Bigfoot didn't seem to be in significant danger except early on. After that he was just eating shots but biding his time to try and make a move back to his feet.

If Velasquez had landed cleanly a couple more times and Bigfoot slumped again I would have been fine with stoppage but it just didn't seem like Velasquez was actually going to be able to stop it there.

Werdum to me is the #3 heavyweight but you need to remember he is busy with the Nogueira rematch and TUF Brazil.

Don't worry Khover you can rep me now. I told you JDS would win the first, Cain in the rematch, and Cigano in the rubber. I had this vision years ago.

Not sure how it's going to unfold but these two are the chosen ones in the UFC HW division. They CLEARED the division minus The Reem which should have been the X factor which I still believe he is.

Fun Fact: in two fights Antonio Silva has yet to last a round against Cain Velasquez (4:57)
Mark Hunt should have gotten this title shot

Nobody could have done worse, those were the two least competitive fights Cain was ever involved in. I still can't believe they gave us that rematch.

Overeem screwed it up big time. I'm glad cuz this is probably the end of Big Foot's career.

Really wanted to see Arlovski back...but think that window has passed sadly. Only Barnett or DC represent fresh faces in the division.
