    You'd think there would be a somewhat size-able talent pool of 200+ lb men, looking to become the UFC heavyweight champion.

    Guess not.

    was with you until he said he hurt his back

    that probably was a big contribution, especially explains putting his hands on his hips and straightening is back out

    he was gassed but i rewinded and it really did look like his back hurt, after mark hit him, he took a weird move/step and grimaced then thats when he started covering up

    Not just cardio though. His technique is awful. I mean, people ripped the ladies on having poor technique, but Derrick Lewis is something else.

    Terrible hand positions. Terrible cage awareness. Terrible takedowns. He basically only has power.

    This is how heavyweight has always been in MMA. They benefit the most from a lack of regulation and PED testing.

    Mark Hunt is smart using just his pressure to exhaust Derrick Lewis. HW and LW is barely alive. UFC fucked up by making a TUF for low tier welterweights instead of making a show for HW and LW. Even if they put truck drivers and former football players who gives a fuck it's HW and LW they will knock each other out!!!

    This.

    You could see him grimace, we all thought it was his leg that was damaged but he clarified it was his lower back, an injury he's had for some years apparently. What should be more disconcerting is that Mark Hunt didn't know how to hurt a guy who was incapable of fighting. He started throwing elbows to his back?

    Love Hunto and all due respect to Lewis, he's clearly out there putting it on the line - but the skill level at heavyweight is just abysmal. It's crazy that these are top 10 fighters.

    The gap in skill and athleticism from from divisions like 155/170 is just ridiculous. It's hard to believe they are in the same league.
