Who's overrated? Heath? No way man haven't you seen his fights with Nog? He held his own in there for a long ass time. He didn't win but he lasted a total of 34 1/2 minutes with him between 2 fights. He lasted 10 minutes with Fedor hahaha that says something doesn't it? I don't think he's overrated, no one said he was as good as Fedor, but Tim would definately have his hands full with him. He has a better ground game than Tim does IMO. Tim has the edge in standing back and waiting though. I agree Tim has no choice as long as CroCop is in the UFC, Heath will never hold the belt.
I agree, people just like him because of the infamous punch. Tim TKO/KO 2nd round.
I agree he gained a lot of fans from that but I liked him after I saw him fight big Nog the first time. That was back when Nog was equivalent to today's Fedor. Heath is a good fighter his record says it and so does his performances.
is fight against Mark Kerr was my favorite fight ever from him .. Had a crazy hair cut that day too. The match was boring Mark Kerr was trying to gnp but the ref make them stand up Crazy Horse was pumped up big time did a big leg kick and knee the face of mark kerr and it was over
I agree, people just like him because of the infamous punch.
Wrong. Heath had fans before the ridiculous "Kiss...punch" thing. His fights with Nogueira put him in the "This guy is pretty fun to watch" category for a lot of people. That whole "Kiss....punch" thing, was when he was floundering in K-1, and doing jackshit except hurting his leg against Greco. People just sort of laughed at the guy during the Nakao thing, and didn't really become a fan of his. If anything, it's his Pride "credentials" that make people believe he'll go far in the UFC.
I, personally, see Heath as being a solid addition to the HW division, and nothing else. I don't see him winning a championship, especially since the UFC doesn't allow knee's to the head on the ground.
