I find it very hard to get excited about the UFC HW division. UFC letting Werdum go makes it even harder. Hopefully, Werdum will get more respect in Affliction then he did in the UFC.

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam

Yea I mean Nogueira is clearly better then him.

I would give Brock, Couture, and Gonzaga a slight advantage.

But Cain isn't proven fully although the O'brien fight was impressive.

Herring Mir and Kongo aren't as good as Aleks IMO.

I mean outside of Gonzaga, Couture, Brock, Cain and of course Nogueira the UFC HW division is garbage.

Still pissed he is gone- please make Werdum-Barnett for the next Affliction card. I would love to see that- much better than most of the UFC's HW fights.

F#cking stupid Dana.

Werdum will probably end up fighting Fedor, and were gonna have Dana telling us that Fedor is fighting guys who couldn't cut it in the UFC while Junior Dos Santos and Kongo duke it out for a title shot.

Could we see Barnett vs. Werdum soon?*pops boner*

One of the things that really annoys me with the UFC is this clause they have where they can renegotiate fighters contracts after a loss then you have Jardine still getting 14k to fight after beating Chuck.

TBH I bet Dana couldn't wait to get rid of one of the best (if not the best) HW BJJ guys now he's got Brock as champ.

I know it sucks, though i'd imagine he must have been paid compensation?

The fighters really need some sort of union to prevent this from happening regularly.

Werdum had the AMAZING ability...

... to finish fights without hurting his opponents!

He had great jitz to tie up GG and Vera but then love tapped them until the ref stepped in. Neither GG or Vera were hurt; they were just tied up to where they couldn't hit back.

Both Vera and GG IMMEDIATELY got up and weren't phased at all! I laughed my ass off at both those finishes! Werdum's a damn magician!

Same here, as much as it hurts the UFC HW division, it's nice to see Affliction's bolstered with even more star material. Plenty of fights for Werdum there.

Yea I mean getting mounted and not doing anything but taking punches and being pinned against a cage getting pounded on is great defense.
