    Guy has been knocked out 5 times in the first round in the last 3 years. These were pretty devastating knock-outs too and he had a 5 round brawl with Mark Hunt. All he is good for is making other HWs look good but he's going to die in the octagon if this keeps up

    He's still riding high on those KO big wins over Ubereem and Browne even though he was roiding

    Maybe he flew to Las Vegas and begged Dana for one more chance.

    This is what I keep saying, I fear for him every time he fights.

    I'm assuming he's still a decent draw win or lose.

    They don't want to let him go to Bellator
    They know he could make a good (in terms of ratings) freakshow fight against Lashley, or even a Fedor rematch
    Also he was a SF fighter, so he possibly has some contact with Coker

    Both Black Beast and Ngannou would murder him

    Exactly what I was thinking. I can see the UFC feeding him to either guy. Bigfoots taken way too much damage, poor guy.

    Because he sells a shit load of DVD's of his fight with Travis for poor Indian chaps (whom are employed by Dana at a cost of 2 Rupee's per box set) outside of events!

    He's 1-1-5 since he KO'd Overeem, and 3-1-6 in the UFC overall.

    Really should take some easier fights as a "gatekeeper" type, although as others have said, guys like Lewis and Ngannou would probably whip him at this point.

    Because he did what Brawldonaldo couldn't do and finished Fedor.

    Truth. Be prepared to explain the difference of TRT and purposely tripling the dosage.

    Actually UFC still owns Bigfoot and his likeness. Once he is cut and abandoned by the UFC he will be handed over to the US government.

    UFC is trying to keep a handle on all 6 of their HW.






    It's a thin division

    It varys on how Black Beast doesn't get sloppy like he did with Matt/Shawn
