Miocic.

And yea AKA train like maniacs, imagine the wars that him and DC goes through. This time is back issue, and to be honest, I am not so sure Cain will ever be "back" from these nagging injuries.

Thing is, for a champ to change his camp (a pretty big deal) this close to a fight and have to prepare for a different fighter whereas the late replacement has been ready training the whole time. I get what you are saying, but this thing is an investment and you have to protect your investment in yourself. Why take that risk and risk injury, and potentially more money (if you lose the fight, the sponsorships and all that) when you can just call it off (technically he had an "injury") and prepare for a different event?

Conner is confirmed to walk around at least 175, going up in a division for more money and fame than fighting the deserved challenger in Edgar (tough stylistic match up) isn't really that much of a "sacrifice".

true true, i agree that he should have defended his belt before going up. it's just edgar left for him in that division anyway. but he didn't really "back down", he just took another fight.

I'm just messing, I get what you are saying.

I'm just saying fighters will choose whatever is the bigger payday, and in Werdum and Jones' case, they just looked at the long haul.

Also already changed on Sherdog.

UFC.com really isn't that good of a site for news and stuff, I personally never check them and use Sherdog a lot more (carried on PRIDE days).

Actually Jones offered to step up only for the HW title though.

Damn, I guess it's too soon for an interim belt in that division. But it would have been awesome. Jones has nothing to prove in LHW anyway, let Cormier keep his belt for a while and when he retires / declines, Gustaffson can take over

He hits so fucking hard

But he's the type of fighter you can game plan your way through. I think Gustafsson would win a rematch. Great fight nonetheless.

Is it just me or are the LHW's not so active?

old/no rising threats

problem is HW is far worse, jones would have 2-3 fights* there and be done with that division.

*if those fuckers can even make it without being injured

I hope he's worked on his cardio and ground game, I'm a fan of AJ.

Yeah, ufc has never had a deep HW division, and LHW has been on and off for a long time. Mostly off.

Maybe mixed martial arts isn't a big man's sport. Not enough talent comes through there in the heavy divisions.

I'm also a fan of his, wouldn't mind him getting the title.

But sadly, I think he's type of fighter who before every fight says that he's had a "whole new approach", "never had such a good camp" etc. Just to gas in the second round.

Rampage comes to mind. Never trained as good as the top guys.
