The UFC Heavyweight division used to be shallow, slow, and above all, boring. It was mostly a collection of slow, semi-skilled dudes who loved not finishing fights. You know the division sucks when your two most notable champs have been Andrei Arlovski and Tim Sylvia.
Since being released, Arlovski has been mediocre at best, and Tim Sylvia has been KO'd in under one round in consecutive fights. However, the division has taken a turn for the better lately, with smaller, more athletic fighters suiting up at heavyweight.
This heavyweight lineup has made a strong case as the most exciting in a very long while. HONORABLE MENTION: Todd Duffee, Roy Nelson, Paul Buentello, and Mirko Cro-Cop. Now, on to the main event.
