As we saw Monson is still a big time competitor in grappling. I think that the heavyweight division in the UFC could definitely use him. I think he would be a tough test for someone like Carwin or Velasquez in their quest for a title shot.

He's calling out Fedor for a fight in DREAM.

He might be the only person who can control fedor from the top and not get an arm taken

those where seven years ago and i doubt monson would be able to cut to 205 to fight chuck or forrest. if monson gets you to the ground he will find a way to choke you out.

He's got 6 good wins and no losses in the last 7 months. I think he deserves a spot if the criteria is being one of the top HWs in the world or if the criteria is being able to beat someone else on the roster.

But I think the UFC is happy that he lost his high profile fight and can be written off as a result. Much like Sylvia, he doesn't have the style or the look that the UFC wants to market to fans as the HW champion of the world. Plus it's hard to imagine a poster boy/spokesperson who is an outspoken anarchist.

Good point Monson is hard to hype/market. Stil i think he could provide a good gatekeeper staus in the UFC

I want to see the Snowman back, don't really care if he's an anarchist, I just want the HW division to have more depth

Thats the reason for this thread........noting the man for his acomplishments not his views. Too much emphsis is put on PC and not on thre things that are important. i guess Jeff is a poster child for all of us who like to cut across the grain and ask ?. War Monson and his rise ........wherever it takes place.

I don't think he'd do any better than his first time in.

I also am not sure if he even wants back in - he fights so often (3 times in 3 weeks most recently) and the UFC would have him waiting around for so long...

There's also the whole defacing a federal building thing...

No. And not because he isn't a good fighter or anything like that. He's a pretty big name. He's had a title shot and he'd probably need to be well paid. But I don't think he'll ever be a champion and he has had a very up and down career. Unfortunately I think his name has outgrown his fighting ability and he requires to much money for not enough talent.

Which was a #1 contender with a title shot at one point.......There are 10-15 guys in the UFC's HW divison that may not ever get that high up the rankings. So no he may not do as good as his first time in the UFC but hes still better than Hardonk, Herring, Etc...
