Heavyweight is the shallowest, least technical division.

Also the division where the most boneheaded things happen.

Oh yeah that's certainly true. The least skilled part if because of the fact that many fighters that heavy can throw a punch and will sometimes rely on that more then stuff like cardio and other skills. Which is why more skilled heavyweights are a commodity.

Heavyweights carry the most weight and have the worst cardio.

Which could make it harder to develop skill and technique.

They do get the most respect though for being the biggest.

Yeah but some of them like Stipe are actual athletes who train their skills in order to be able to out technique larger opponents who have power but not much else. Let's remember that most heavyweights aren't all that fast. So the faster, more technical fighter has an advantage at heavyweight.
