    Current favorite: Cain

    All time favorite: Fedor

    Three retired HW's:

    Shane Carwin - Had a unique amount of power and his knockouts were always destructive. Carwin embodied the one punch can end it all trait of heavyweights.

    Mark Coleman - Crazy ground and pound, one of the first high level wrestlers to adapt to MMA. Plus his emotional demeanor always spiced things up a bit in and out of the ring.

    Igor Vovchanchyn - A destructive force in his prime, Igor was a brutal finisher. I only watched his fights in Pride at first, then checked out earlier footage, and he was really a pioneer in his day, he could wrestle, strike, submit, he was a complete martial artist when the sport was barely even defining itself.

    One HW fight I would like to see now would be Overeem vs Junior Dos Santos.

    Tough call between Werdum and Hunt, but went with Hunto.

    1. Overeem, he's the most dynamic of 'em and has the most varied finishes.

    2. Cro Cop. Most skilled striker in his prime.

    3. Rutten - "to the liverrr". Fedor - special fighter. Carwin - arm punches ahoy

    4. Overeem/JDS

    1. Werdum

    2. Fedor

    3. Fedor- awesome fights, his reflexes and explosion still get amped up when I watch his old fights. I'm hoping Nurmagomedov and Khabilov continue to improve and can provide me with some similarly vicious, explosive sambo style beatdowns in the future.

    Randy- some good fights, but mostly like that he often found a way to win as an underdog.

    Bas Rutten- exciting, technical kickboxing style. I also respect that he was able to develop his grappling game after starting it so late and go on such a long unbeaten streak.

    4. Arlovski vs Overeem
