Most of the heavyweight title fights for the next couple years I predict will be somewhat one-sided. And it doesn't speak to the weakness of the UFC's heavyweight division, but the MMA heavyweight world in general. Unless Minatauro slims down and cardios up to his Pride shape, there is nobody for Lesnar except Fedor. Similarly, there is no one for Fedor but Lesnar.

There are many good young heavyweight prospects, but they are too one-dimensional at the moment (Cain Valesquez and Junior Dos Santos for example).

Carwin, even though relatively nascent in his MMA career, is older and small than Lesnar. Even though he has heavy hands, his talent, wrestling, does not compare to the skill level of Lesnar's wrestling, let alone his size advantage in ground fighting.

Looks to be one-sided, as do most of the hypothetical match-ups for Lesnar, unless, the aforementioned Nogueira can get it together.
