At the highest level the division is changing in that there are more legit athletes in it now. So even the guys that didn't have a crazy athletic background are having to step it up to compete. I like it.

Less Tank and Andre Roberts and more Cain and JDS' is great for the division Phone Post 3.0

There aren't enough of them, and they need to be in better shape.

The UFC HW division is in a difficult spot, JDS is clearly number 2 but is still way behind Cain. The only guy with the potential to pull in a big audience is Overeem, and he refuses to cooperate by constantly losing.

It's the same outside the UFC, but worse. The HW guys are even fatter and gas even easier. The only other guys are older guys trying to work themselves back into the UFC or just make some money before they retire. I also heard Cole Conrad retired or something.

I don't watch HWs outside of the UFC as much as possible, for a simple reasons

there are not enough good HWs for there to be many studs at local shows.


when I see HWs at local shows when my teammates fight, 95% of the time there are only 2 outcomes
-one of the guys is a stud and he will absolutely mangle the other guy
-they are both fatties that will get tired and have a terrible fight


every once in awhile, they match a stud with a tough dude that is hard to finish and it becomes a fun scrap.
but I have never seen 2 blue chip HW prospects fight at a podunk local show

well good luck getting fights

one of my teammates was in a similar situation. HW stud that beasted a few guys on the local level so guys wouldn't fight him until recently, he was lucky enough to get a deal with Bellator



keep grinding
