HH is a "gatekeeper" in the division: someone that is a solid fighter and will give most HWs a challenge, but wont ever be an elite in the division...

he has somewhat slowed down in the past couple of years (his body looks "softer" now than say two or three years ago; compare how he looked against Kerr with today to see my point) but has been in the ring with some of the best in PRIDE...

the addition of HH is good for the UFC...adds some depth and experience to the division...

i'm pretty sure Tim is much more overrated than Heath. I mean, Heath will just get Tim to the ground and Sub him. I really don't see Tim winning that, but hey, you never know...

Meh, the first Herring vs Cro Cop fight was a one sided beatdown. I really wouldn't want to see those 2 fight again. Well, I guess if you're a huge Cro Cop fan, then you'd like to see them face off again.

Herring needs to go apeshit, and kick someone in the face(Like old times). If he doesn't, then I'd consider Heath Herring's UFC run to be a disappointment. A "Bas Rutten in UFC" sized disappointment.

I'll be honest, I don't think that Sylvia has ever fought anyone like Herring. Herring is a dark horse in this division, and I think he can beat anyone, except for CroCop.

Herring has beaten:

"Ice Cold" Igor - I'm not going to try to spell his last name, but Igor has like 45 wins and 9 losses.

Yoshiki Takahashi - A Japanese fan favorite with a 28-20-3 record who only loses to guys like Semmy Schilt, Vernon White, Jason Delucia, a younger Ken Shamrock and Bas Rutten.

Gan McGee - Former UFC heavyweight and giant with a similar style to Sylvia.

Mark Kerr - A former UFC warrior, until leaving for PRIDE. Kerr was undefeated and considered to be unbeatable for a long time. Herring was the first man ever to finish Kerr.

Gary "Big Daddy" Goodridge - The K-1 staple has only lost to 3 fighters since 2001. Those three fighters are Herring, the unfinishable one Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira and the king himself Fedor Emelianenko.

Anyway, I'm psyched to see Heath in the UFC. He's a great fighter and he's entertaining. He's the kind of fighter that this heavyweight division really needs.

Herring was the first man to finish Kerr and Kerr's style is very similar to Couture's, though on a less technical level.

Anyway, we don't know what Couture looks like yet. He may be as good as he was when he left, he may be better, his game may have gone all to hell. We'll find out in March.

If Couture smashes Sylvia then I think he will probably beat Herring, but Heath has good ground defense, beastly knees and a much lower center of gravity than Sylvia, so he's a little bit harder for the groundnpound gameplan.

As for CroCop, I think he will get a quicker KO on Herring and Couture than he would against Sylvia, but that's only because Herring's and Couture's heads are closer to his left leg.

Maybe CroCop will finish Sylvia like he did against Hidehiko and just snap his leg in half. It wouldn't be the first time someone's broken one of Tim's limbs in the octagon.

Back to Heath Herring, the man has a real shot at the title. I'd love to watch him fight Gabe Gonzaga or see a second fight with CroCop.

Im not saying Heath Sucks or anything , but people seem to think he will beat Sylvia and I just dont see that happening. And we all saw what Crocop did to him. Did anybody see before his fight with Fedor, all the commentators picked Heath to win by decision. Even Bas agreed...This was one of fedor's 1st fights in Pride, so I guess Ill give Bas a pass on that one.
