i've watched a few heavyweight fights and wasn't impressed. and then this weekend they had some more on. I think if Fedor really does continue with them he will have to fight 2 guys at the same time to make it fair.

No doubt about it Bodog is behind the eight ball as far as legit fighters, but they put on excellent matches.

Those heavys throw haymakers all day and eat them and keep going, but not much MMA skill from most of them.

Rothwell looks like he could be the real deal . Won't know unless he starts fighting more established fighter's though.

I forgot to mention Antonio bigfoot Silva . Imo other than Nog he has the best chance out of any of the current HW fighters of beating Fedor . He has very quick takedowns and with this 300 lb + frame they are almost impossible to stop . He could give Fedor some major problems if he put him on his back .

Prolly a stupid question, but does BoDog cap their HW's at 265?

I agree with what you said about Junior Silva though... Do you think he could make it down to 265? I think he could really be a force to be reckoned with in the next couple of years.

I dont know for certain , but im 99 % sure they dont cap there HW div .

No way Silva makes 265 lbs ! Dont know why you would ask that if youve seen him ? He isnt muscular , and he isnt fat Yet he is 300 lbs + So no way he makes 265 lbs .
