The heavyweight champion, Junior Dos Santos; and contenders Cain Velasquez & Alistair Overeem have established themselves as the top dogs in an extremely stacked division, the only thing left to decide is who will reign supreme. I will breakdown the match-ups Dos Santos-Velasquez, Dos Santos-Overeem, and Overeem-Velasquez in order to predict who will come out on top in this heavyweight power struggle.

Over the last few decades we’ve seen some very polarizing personalities emerge in this sport. Some men choose to express themselves precisely as they would behind closed doors; some men opt to project specific images in the hopes of drawing more fan interest. The protagonist personality surfaces just as often as the antagonistic, but it seems the genuine individuals are the true crowd pleasers; even drunken fans can detect a bogus façade.

If you look back on the history of the Ultimate Fighting Championship heavyweight division, it was consistently one of the worst as far as UFC ranking weight classes in the company. If you asked me a couple months back, I would have said it was in the same spot due to injuries and other factors. The announcement that Junior Dos Santos would fight Brock Lesnar after coaching in The Ultimate Fighter brings the division back, even after losing its champion to injury.
