    Honestly given how shallow HW is, if Villante can be a lean 240 like Dos Santos and crispen up his kickboxing, he might do very well.

    I doubt he is going to crispen up anything while gaining weight and late in his career.

    I still remember when Villante folded to Chad Griggs.

    I'm really surprised he's still in the UFC, for so long.

    omg gian is going to take even more and worse damage

    it's not like he is a skilled footwork guy coming up to dance around the big fellas, he is known for defending punches with his face

    The only thing missing from making this an all time classic, is having the fight take place in high altitude.

    Haha, Griggs was a cool dude. Anybody that can rock the Lemmy mutton chops and get away with it is all right in my book.

    Taking on one of the biggest HW isn’t the best way to test out the devision. Rothwell is massive. Not sure if he cuts to make 265 but my guess is that he does.
