In terms of talent, not the best, who do you think is the most talented HW and why ?
Oh UFC only, Cain then
Dude was wingin' WHEEL kicks in his last fight.
In before people start crying.
Overeem is an elite striker and grappler.
Chin & roid hold that guy back for a while.
Healthy Cain is scary.
Edit : Currently and in this organization.
Inb4 Ngannou is mentioned.
I'd go with Reem, Stipe and Werdum.
Overeem is the most talented he can do it all just always finds a way to fuck it up
Of course Fedor all time.
But if we are talking current then probably Overeem. He has a great all around game. Striking, takedown defense, ground and pound, submissions... he can do it all.
Jim Ross voice - Cain! It's Cain!!
Seriously though, cain is a warrior. He is extremely well-rounded in terms of tecinque. Gifted cardio-wise. Still increasing his repertoire showing ability to learn this late in his career, which is a talent in itself.
I'd put the Reem as a close second for the sheer number of accolades he's won.
cain or reem
Duffee. DC, Cain and Schaub have all said as much.
Stipe Miocic. he is faster and fitter than them all..
People are confusing talent with skill in this thread.
Talent is natural, skill is learned.
Fedor was never particularly talented, but he was highly skilled, with an iron will.
I would say Arlovski is one of if not the most naturally talented Heavyweights I have ever seen. The guy has the speed and agility of a Welterweight. Never quite put it all together, though he did become Champion, but wow, what an athlete.
Werdum is the only HW talent with World Champion credentials in a sport outside MMA.
wasn't arlovski a world champ of sambo?
