He'd have to lose 40lbs to be even eligible to fight.  I"m sure that's bound to hurt his game.  At 300, I'd put my money on Neal against Lesnar.  Not sure if you make Neal soak down way below what he should be weighing.

AND since we are on that subject, not sure I like a heavyweight cap.  Should be a Super Heavyweight and Heavyweight.
Ok, stop right there.........and I'll bring back the sun.

I've thought that for years, AM.  The HWT class has been light in numbers recently but we are starting to see an influx of very skilled BIG men and it will only increase.

Cain could be dominant at HWT (cut-off of ....idk 225-230?)  for a long time if he didn't have to deal with the Super-Hwt's.

As the sport continues to evolve I really think we will see this exact thing.

True.  Its like a good 235 pounder has to be EXTREMELY good to eliminate the weight advantage of 40 plus pounds, ie Couture and Lesnar.  I don't care what anybody says, Couture beats Lesnar 9 out of 10 times if they both weigh 230.
