    Fights like this....Fucking embarrassment

    Stipe might not be the best HW out there, he did get KTFO by STRUVE, but compared to guys smaller than him he'll absolutely demolish anyone below HW.

    Reason why DC cake walked his LHW fights.

    I know DC is thanking the lord that he had some unfair weight advantage over the GOAT barista and the guy old enough to be his grandfather.

    Wand vs Hunt
    Wand vs Fujita
    Randy vs Timmeh
    Randy vs Gonzaga
    Randy vs Rizzo
    Hendo vs Nogueira
    Hendo vs Fedor

    Elite LHWs can be competitive against HWs. There was a huge disparity in Miocic and Maldonado's standing in the sport even despite the weight class difference.

    HWs are beyond human. They have bigger bones, bigger bodies, stronger, dominant men. HW is prof that the bigger the better. Roy Nelson > Jon Jones. Mark Hunt > Alexander Gustoffson. Soa Palelei > Glover Texiera!!!

    This is why Jones has and will continue to duck HW for the rest of his career.

    Was anyone under the impression that Fabio Maldonado was a good LHW?

    It was an impressive performance by Stipe, but not some cosmic lesson about the unstoppable power of heavyweights.

    Dave Herman, a former UFC HW with 15 KO wins, just fought Kalib Starnes for 15 minutes, hit him with everything but the kitchen sink, and never had him in real danger. Doesn't mean HWs can't KO guys. Just like this fight doesn't mean they always can.

    Agree with this , Stipe outboxed the shit out of Roy Nelson and people are acting like he and Maldonado were of equal skill

    Undisputably, the HW division is THE P4P, heaviest division of all the UFC divisions.

    There is areason they have separate weight classes.Stipe eerily predicted he'd be first fighter to ko Maldonado.

    Mighty Mouse would beat Zulu or HMC, it doesn't mean much.

    fabio isnt even a top 30 lhw in mma tho

    i think as a rule equally ranked hws would beat lhws, but the top lhws can hang at hw. jones, gus, glover, rashad, dc can all be competitive if not beat some top 10 hws
