    Denis has fought in the UFC before and showed some strong stand up skills, but limited grappling ability. Denis was finished in both of his UFC appearances first by Cain, then by Struve. Denis has gone undefeated since he was cut (7-0 with 6 finishes). Big wins over Ricco Rodriguez and Mighty Mo.

    Would adding a fighter like Stojnic help reinvigorate the HWT division?

    Sure why not.

    HW division needs fighters.

    At this point, any heavyweight with a decent record or name recognition is worthy of being in the UFC.

    The division is that bad.

    For sure. Matching him up with Mitrione or Lewis would be some good stand up wars.

    Yes, Stojnic looked great at the start, but Struve ultimately got the job done.

    Yes they should re-sign him. HW needs more fighters.

    Yes he did. He was beating Struve up for the most part of round 1, landing a good elbow late in the round that cut Struve's forehead badly.

    Struve was bleeding all over the place but managed to submit him in the second round. I was there live, it was crazy. Me being Dutch I cheered so loud for Struve that my voice was gone for the rest of the evening lol.

    I agree. Stojnic could make some waves in this shallow division.

    He is a tweener for HW (5'11" 240 lb). Similiar build to former blue chip HW signee Konstantin Erokhin. He just turned 36, so not much ceiling there. Could certainly be signed for another stint as a replacement for a European card. Lots of HW bouts lined up in Zagreb and Rotterdam.

    Stojnic has great killer instinct and nasty hammerfists

    No probably not.

    Heavy weights apparently have no personality.

    They apparently died with Alli, Islam and Middle East.

    Brock though, who don't like WWE and fighting?

    Get me a heavyweight with charisma I'll spend a million, Dana white.

    I made that up, but you think it ant true?
