    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    The best current heavyweight?

    So who's the best heavyweight currently fighting right now?

    We have a bunch of really tough guys but if I have to pick from the bunch I'm going to go with Arlovski. He's tough, strong, FAST as hell and can submit. I think of him as a faster Fedor with more sting to his punches.

    If I forgot anyone that might be considered #1 please jog my memory and mention the person.

    Crocop. That's a no-brainer.

    Silva fights in the light heavyweight division.

    Except when he fights guys like Mark Hunt just for the hell of it.

    Josh Barnett is more deserving of a mention than Sylvia is.

    I voted Fedor. I've only seen Arlovski in UFC 51 but that was impressive.
    I pointed at him [the panhandler], bringing my rear hand up in a subtle approximation of the double Wu Sau guard that is the default hand position in Wing Chun Kung Fu.

    "Step away," I hissed.

    I think Arlovski would beat Fedor as long as he brought his "A" game to the fight.

    Interesting that people chose Cro Cop as much as Fedor. I hope those two fight soon, everyone has been waiting long enough.

    They say his BJJ has improved incredibly and now hes very confident that he can win on the ground and in the air.

    I just dont see how Fedor can stand up with him and I honestly think he has enough ground skills to either prevent a submission or get the fight back to their feet.

    In Fedor's defense, I don't see how hes capable of being knocked out after that slam Kevin put on him.

    I am amazed so many people have picked Cro Cop over Nog when Nog has already beaten him. And Cro Cop lost to a much less talented Randleman not that long ago. That being said, we do need to see Cro Cop v Fedor, the sooner the better.
