The "New Look" UFC Heavyweight Division

The "New" UFC Heavyweight line up looks like this:

- Mirko Filipovic
- Heath Herring
- Tim Sylvia
- Andrei Arlovski
- Brandon Vera
- Gabriel Gonzaga

Rumored...

- Ricco Rodriguez (Maybe, still unsigned as far as I know.)
- Aleksander Emelianenko (Still a rumor, but now more likely than ever.)

Guys that have a little to prove still...

- Frank Mir (Had too much to prove against Vera. He might not have mentally been all there.)
- Cheick Kongo
- Carmelo Marrero
- Antoni Hardonk
- Eddie Sanchez

----------

It's a big difference. Hopefully, Ricco can lose some weight like Mir did and they can sign him. We have heard way too many rumors about Aleks coming to the UFC to dismiss the possibility. This would be a deep division. It might just end up looking like this. I'd say the chances are pretty high actually.

Your thoughts?

That looks like a really good divison and with Alexs coming over if he does. The divison has done a 180 from only a few weeks ago. No more complaining by nuthuggers

I think Kongo would be a great HW if he would just learn some takedown defense, ground skills and distance....He also needs to hit the tread mill...not that he's fat but he needs better cardio...he keeps gassing early.

OR
"You can light a man on fire and he'll be warm for a lifetime."

My Top 6
BW = Miguel Torres
LW = Tyson Griffin
WW = GSP
MW = Gegard Mousasi
LHW = Lyota Machida
HW = Fedor

No question CroCop will beat S**t brick (Tim) or any other HW in the UFC if he is on his game, but everyone has a punchers chance even Tim. But Crocop is going to get his belt and probalby just like Anderson in the second fight.

I think it's a possibility, but it would be nice if you elaborated on why you thought this would ever happen. AA vs CC would be a great match up of kickboxers I'd have to take Crocop though in the later rounds.
