    He was one dimensional, so he would fit in good with these HW's.

    A tall man who has a good sprawl would do well in any era.

    Probably top 5. Francis nas Gane are big favorite against him, but beside them, i don't think he's overmatched against anyone

    Quite possible my favorite thread.
    He’d get merc’d. His competition for the day gets destroyed cept maybe pre-accident Mir.

    He’d do pretty well. Def top 10, maybe top 5. This is both because Sylvia is better than ppl give him credit for, and because the current HW division is slop.

    His skill level was passed up long ago, but I still think he could score some wins over some of the guys we see today. No doubt!

    MMA evolved Tim and Andrei Arlovski were good in the past, today he is too slow for a modern HW.
