"The thread for all things related to cruiserweights" My favourite division, the much maligned & often overlooked 200lb cruiserweights. Formed in 1979 for the smaller heavyweights the original upper limit of 190lbs was later increased to 200lb. This division provides a bridge between light-heavy & heavy but has never attracted the attention or gained the respect it deserves, despite having some fantastic fighters & legendary battles. It is currently one of the most competitive divisions in the sport where the best frequently fight each other & has already provided some of the best fights this year like Hernandez-Cunningham II & Huck-Afolabi II. The current top 5(imo) of Hernandez, Huck, Lebedev, Afolabi & Cunningham are all closely matched. Add into that mix experienced veterans like Jones, Tarver & Wlodarczyk, plus some good up-and-comers like Chakkiev, Masternak, Kayode & Kiladze & the cruiserweight scene is looking very healthy.
