More HW

Looking at UFC.com they have several HW's that have not fought in a while.
Why are they not fighting more often?? They need to build a couple up...Soa Palelei has won hisfirst 2 fights in ufc...He should get Stipe next.

Why are these guys not fighting...Geronimo dos Santos...Todd Duffee...Derrick Lewis...Ben Rothwell ???

GDS was scheduled to fight but was diagnosed with Hep B and couldn't go back to training until he was clear
Duffee has a serious back injury and could be out for several months still
Rothwell is on a 9 month suspension for pissing hot

Lewis was also hurt I believe.

The real question is where the hell is Chad Corvin?

not familiar with chad so i did a little research, damn his resume is good. 5 - 0 on amateur fight, 5 - 0 on his professional fights (all TKO and 1:39 is the longest fight). He stopped fighting last 2009, hmm so I'm also curious, where he is now?

Maybe the roster for heavyweights is too slim. I don't understand why the UFC isn't making a push to sign guys like Kharitonov, Aleks E, and Sylvia among others who can all still compete at a high level.

Kharitonov and Arlovski could still be competitive I think. Dunno about Sylvia, but at the very least he's a name and could probably hang with the likes of Soa, Rothwell, even Mir for now. But yeah, I also dunno why the UFC isn't picking some of these old HWs up. They wouldn't have to pay them much anymore.
