I enjoyed the fight.

Vandam Mbuyi vs. Potts would be competitive.

Those desperate HW fights on the prelims in the UFC between no-namers are usually awful slopfests if they dont end in 2 minutes due to knock out....

heavy weight is by far the weakest division, and you can tell by the steady stream of signings of mediocre fighters like Hamilton, Potts, Jack May, Derrick Lewis, Morecraft, McCorkle, Omielanczuk,

So a division containing Cain, JDS, Werdum, Overeem, Travis Browne, Hunt, Nelson, Bigfoot, Arlovski, Barnett, Mir, Nogueira...guys who finish like Lewis, Soa Palelei, Mitrione....is weaker than WMMA 135?

No mate. At least those guys have either a BJJ black-belt, wrestling credentials, KO power and have beaten legitimate fighters in their division. WMMA has Rousey and nobody else.

They keep Potts around because he'll take 8/8k to clog up another PPV spot on the cheap for the UFC.
