lets hope, the HW DIV could use him. I understand things are more exciting in the division then they have been recently, but i still think the HW Div needs more big names.

He's got a decent record...I'd bet though that he likes being a free agent. He's fought all over the place in all kinds of tournaments for a long time. He must like it that way. Dana probably does not.
