    If only they could get Mir & Nelson back from Bellator we’d be in business.

    Not as good as the peak PRIDE days or the 2010ish era of prime Cain, JDS, Werdum, Lesnar, Carwin, Bigfoot, etc. But it's better than it's been in a long time.

    But it's actually true.

    HW does suck.


    Learn what 'myth' actually means.

    Agree that it was better around 2010 when Cain and JDS were better, aswell as Werdum.

    In my opinion Cain and JDS around 2010 is quite alot better than any MMA HW-fighter active at the moment.

    Pride had the best HW division. Prime UFC was Cain, Werdum, JDS, Reem, Hunt, Mir, Bigfoot. The pride HW's had too much mileage by that time

    The UFC 2013 top 10 HW rankings were Cain, JDS, Werdum, Cormier, Bigfoot, Overeem, Mir, Nogueira, Barnett, and Stipe. 8 or 9 of those fighters are the among the 10 greatest HWs this sport has ever seen. The oldest fighter on that list at the time was 34 years old as well.

    This UFC HW division is worse than that, and it's not debatable.
