    Yeah yeah i know there are gonna be some pride nuthuggers here, but hey what can you do this is sherdog after all

    Anyway heavyweight is looking better than ever right now, we have an all time great in stipe, murderous punchers like the sport have never seen before with ngannou and lewis and rozenstruik, pragmatic wrestlers like blaydes, super complete guys like cyril gane and tom aspinall on the upcoming and still some old legends that although shot still can put on a good show and serve as gatekeepers. Fuk even guys like tanner boser look impresive for their speed, this is the first time in a long time i can see at least 5 guys on the hw division that could become legit champions.

    I think there's some reasons to be optimistic about the future of HW, but we'll see how it all pans out.

    Yes.

    That's why pride fanboys are trying so hard to discredit the division and fighters in it.

    Its not the English; by all means brother, good effort as a 2nd language, no disrespect there.

    It's a false startement because there have always been extremely heavy hitters at HW, and the guys you mentioned arent standout, including Ngannou, who is woefully overrated.

    I'd put Daukaus over Boser since he's notched the better wins so far and didn't get outclassed by Arlovski.

    Oh yeah the good old argument of age, thats why a certain goat got his ass kicked in the west as soon as he etered the cage at the bold age of 32

    Pavlovich & Romanov also have bright futures. Espino is already 40 but its HW so he could be relevant for the next years if he's healthy. I also like the Brazilian that Daukus KO'd in like 45 seconds, he's young & at ATT he should reach his potential. Hardy, who has been fighting pro less than 3 years, can have a bright future if he gets a diet & loses 15-20 lbs. Even Spivak is young & improving. Tuiavsa seems to have taken things more seriously going to AKA & getting into better shape.

    WAR HWs!!

    Cain was a better wrestler than Blaydes, Carwin hit harder than Frank, and J-Roz is a jobber... HW is a grim wasteland with the one shining light being Gane...

    We had Brocktobers to look forward to, Fedor vs Crocop, Mark Kerr sized monster smeshing mortals.

    Its a sorry state these days.

    There's nothing overrated about ngannou. He's the hardest hitterand one of the freakiest heavyweight in mma history.

    Not even close to prime but it is getting more interesting recently. Stipe finally fighting someone other than DC for the first time in over THREE FUCKING YEARS, Blaydes/Lewis last weekend, Gane/Rozenstruik this weekend, Volkov looking pretty good, Aspinall and Dakaus looking like decent prospects, Jones (allegedly) coming up etc.

    Nope, there hasn't been a HW that has a moniker of a Mixed Martial Artist in the HW division since DC retired. If Jon Jones is jet set on fighting at HW than he's the next HW that actually has overall skill other than punching power that the rest of the HWs seem to rely on.

    HW Fighters of this generation are horrible, they literally have no skill when it comes to overall MMA. Randy Couture cryptid ass has more skill than these this generation

    How about you evaluate their skillsets by watching their fights instead of just looking at their age? Is that too hard for a simple minded casual like you?
