well, considering that the "male perv demographic" is 99% of the male demographic, that's a pretty efficient place to start.

Hmmm, checked out Sherdog and JDS fans are becoming more and more delusional. He's starting to get the Fedor treatment...

I doubt it that she does, she would've tested positive and had been suspended for a year by the CSAC.

i'm going to have to sanitise myself after agreeing with sherdog fans on anything, but i wouldn't be totally surprised if JDS goes on a long run.

cain, overeem and cormier should all be underdogs. intriguing underdogs, but still underdogs. and there's almost nothing for him after those three. maybe jones one day, but HW has no significant prospects that i know of these days.

I post on Sherdog and there's a lot of delusional fans, but there's also a lot of good quality posters, just like any other message board, the problem with Sherdog is that that's there's so many traffic of people posting on the board, that's hard to keep a hold of a lot of things and hard to keep track of a lot of threads.

JDS fans aren't delusional if they think he's the best heavyweight in the world as he really is. The only real heavyweights I think have a chance at beating JDS are Overeem and Cormier.

yea, on sherdog there's a few good fans among the endless sea of knuckleheads, but the format absolutely blows for sifting through that mess. meaning, standard forum format with all the stupid-ass avatars, the stupid-ass space-consuming posts, the stupid-ass fake belt system and all the stupid-ass signatures. trying to find something worthwhile on sherdog is like going to a garbage dump and looking for overlooked valuables, and actually i'm probably being unfair to the garbage dump.

meanwhile, go to any of the three SB nation MMA sites and read the comments to any article at all. they're short, efficient, to the point, funny, and a large number of the commentors actually practice one or more core disciplines in MMA.

I don't have a problem at all if they merely just thought he was the best HW, but more and more people are going overboard. It's stuff like: he's unstoppable and will just destroy everyone, but it's mainly because people are saying he's the most dominate/impressive champ in the UFC (above GSP, Silva, Aldo, and Jones...) and about how much people are overstating his opponents. I've heard people saying that all of his opponents were top 10 at one time and act like they're elite wins when:

1. It's not true
2. Many weren't/shouldn't have been when they fought
3. The division has been rather weak for a long time
4. The rankings have sucked for a long time (I'm still trying to figure out how Nelson was ever ranked while not doing a whole lot in the division)

Well, they're either close or would be pretty close on the betting lines. There's just too many question marks in the HW division to really state anyone would be safe there.

There's not that many heavyweight prospects, Miocic was one, but Struve KOed him and stopped his hype a bit.

JDS isn't unstoppable or the best champion, but he truly is the most overlooked champion when you check out his record.

JDS has beaten Werdum, Struve, CroCop, Big Country, Carwin, Cain and Mir which are some of the best heavyweights in MMA.

Sure he's not as dominant a fighter in his division as Anderson, GSP, Jones or Aldo, but he's a dominant fighter.

I'd rank the UFC champions in the following way: Anderson or GSP is a toss up depending on who you like more, Jones, Aldo, JDS, Cruz, Mighty Mouse.

You can change up Jones and Aldo if you want, but I wouldn't rank JDS behind Cruz.

Werdum, Cain and Mir are the only 3 worth a shit out of those. Carwin was awfully gun shy after coming off major surgery and a long lay off, and he was a big, lumbering ogre with 0 cardio before that. Struve? He was in his first UFC fight and that was his first fight against real competition. Cro Cop? He hasn't been any good for years. Nelson? I still can't figure out what he's done to get so much praise. He's just a decent fighter with horrible cardio. Hell, even Mir has looked like shit in all of this fights. The division is full of question marks.
