Marcus Jones: 6’6, 272 lbs., six years as a defensive end in the NFL, first round draft pick. That’s just one example of the direction the heavyweight division is moving in. Can you imagine 5 years from now when their skills and technique catches up with their size, strength and athleticism? There’s only one Brock Lesnar now, but who knows how many there will be in a few years. Eventually, a new weight class for the guys in the 205-240 range is going to be necessary.
