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.
Carwin's a former champion and considered a big name. Far from being a great fighter, but a big name.

Struve has shown he's a top prospect in the division.

Cro Cop despite not being half as good as he was before, was still considered a big win for JDS due to Cro Cop's past reputation.

Nelson's a tough fighter who can beat some of the top heavyweights.

Mir's probably the most overrated heavyweight in the history of MMA. JDS pretty much proved this point when he pretty dominated him in every area their fight went.

Sure the division is one of the weakest in MMA, but JDS has dominated most of the big names that their is in the division which is a lot more than many other fighters can say.

Carwin isn't a former champ. Interim titles mean jackshit.
Struve is a nice prospect, but he had no experience against real competition at the time. It looks like he's starting to put it together now.
Cro Cop hasn't really been considered that big of a win for a while. Gonzaga and Kongo took all the steam from him (many people thought Cro Cop was going to steamroll through the UFC's fragile HW division, but it was quickly shown that he wasn't the same fighter)
What top HWs can Nelson beat? He lost every time he fought one.

I keep waiting and waiting for the HW division to take off, but it still hasn't yet. The future looks promising, though.

Edwards - Stephens
Cruickshank - Martinez

Jorgensen - Albert

Swick/Brown seems a bit out of place, but it could end up being an entertaining opener.

Steven Seagal accepted a no rules fight challenge vs Randy Couture. His only stipulation is that no witnesses are allowed

Now that the Couture vs Seagal fight is heating up...( Couture called him out again)

This would probably happen.

Aikido is legit. Machida used some basic Aikido to make several fighters look completely stupid.

Seagal would ruin anything left of Randy's legacy.

Obviously it was training, but Seagal was just plain toying withing Anderson. All the ignorant dumbasses in this thread picking Couture don't understand anything about leverage or timing.

Toney was an out of shape boxer...boxing isn't exactly foreign to Couture. He might be a wrestler, but he's been training striking for a while. Aikido is a completely different animal.
