    Posting gifs instead of refuting my points with a proper argument or comeback.... Typical and expected.

    Unless sherdoggers are snowflakes, I don't see how this thread is going to trigger a shitstorm.

    Heavyweight is definitely the most exciting it's been in years.
    It will never be the greatest division from a technical standpoint but there's some fun matchups to be had.

    I am a believer in Gane

    Pavlovich and Jairzinho, not so much.

    I think Overeem finishes Jairzinho if he fights smart and turns back into Wrestlereem

    People on Sherdog won't admit HW is a good division because it isn't the Pride 2005 roster.

    Yep.

    That's what this is all about

    Holding onto the myth of Prime Fedor and Cro Cop being able to easily run through all of the top HWs today even though prime Cro Cop got starched multiple times as soon as he step foot into a much worse UFC HW division than we have now.

    It's actually hilarious to witness the insecurity.

    True
    I think Rozenstruik is going to get viciously ground and pounded by d1 reem. It's way too soon for him to fight someone like Alistair.

    Yeah if Diaper boy Albini can take you down and control you on the mat, D1reem should have no problem at all.

    Not better than ever but better than it's been in about 10 years.

    JDS is done. Cormier is one fight away from retirement and will fight Stipe only. Overeem is more glass-chinned than ever and wins only with experience, because he is fighting more than subpar opposition. Volkov is super mediocre and not a title contender at all. Black Beast and Blagoy are just tough HW journeyman that a real contender has to go through. They won't smell a title shot soon.

    So what's left? Ngannou and Blaydes (who was defeated twice by Ngannou already). And Stipe. Who is probably one good Ngannou punch away from retirement right now.

    HW is so bad that 2-3 years from now the same 40-year olds (under USADA no less) will still be in top 10.

    Cyril Gane won two fight by submission and he is suddenly a great grappler.
    Hold on guys, he just have been doing luta livre for only 2-3 years, and has zéro wrestling.

    He is FRENCH, coming from the same team of Ngannou. Guy has zéro wrestling and he is going to be expose by Wrestlers

    It's still pretty weak... but better than LHW at the moment.
    Which is shocking.
    But true.
    :(

    He's called a "prospect" for a reason. And who said he's a great grappler? He may not be a great grappler but he has shown that he has very decent submission game, especially for a heavyweight.

    And ngannou doesn't have wrestling is a myth. He neutralized blaydes and Cain wrestling.Two of the best wrestler in ufc heavyweight history.
    Only stipe has outwrestled ngannou, and the reason why he was able to do it is because he made ngannou gassed a little on the feet before taking him down.
