    Before I begin if u think it's dumb fine I just dnt think it contributes to insult a hypothetical idea.

    Any how, which current fighters would be in a UFC SHW Division?
    Who'd be Champ? Top 5?

    I just think it's intesting to ponder and I'm not talking about just unhealthy overweight fighters, more like guys who do or did cut for HW

    EX - Bigfoot/Carwin/Lesnar
    Who else?

    Because HW is old and thin as hell already. Why would you want to make it thinner? Because the SHW division is a joke on the regional scene. Because if they took the limit off of HW, it wouldn't change a thing.

    Sean McCorkle would be in there. He used to look anorexic cutting to 265.

    Good point/ Good point and I disagree, one ex- I think a 300 lbs Carwin would before he lost all confidence would give Cain and Werdum a lot of trouble

    Guy is one of the most legit SHW prospects out there.... Though legit and SHW are rather contradictory...

    But, an extra 50-100lbs does make a difference, that is why the limit is there. And to avoid the freakshow look.

    Here's a better question:

    Are there are SHW fighters that actually have a chance against Cain?

    Gas tanks are the problem.

    Can you imagine a 5-rnd SHW fight?

    Better make them 1-rnd fights.

    Bones older brother Arthur would mop up the Octagon with Cain.

    Easy... Jones *cough* off recreational drugs will gain weight!!!! I kid, I kid. Seriously, Jones frame can certainly handle the weight, his brothers would be pretty good proof of this.

    Sure he would. We all know how well people with zero relevant martial arts training do in MMA.

    The HW division is already slow and untalented except for the top 10 (barely). Super HW fights would have only 1 round of action then absolute boredom due to both fighters being gassed.
