I knew I was forgetting someone! Eddie Alvarez, too.

And I can't forget about this guy...

Hmmm...

Ricardo Arona (205)
"Krazy Horse" Charles Bennett (155) - mainly for hilariousness
Jason "Mayhem" Miller (170-185) - Very entertaining fighter, brings personality.
Igor Vovchanchyn (205)
Josh Barnett (HW)
Mirko Cro-Cop - If he can find his way again, i'd love to see him again.
Vitor Belfort (185/205)
Fedor Emelianenko - With the challenge of Brock, i'd like to see him there within te next year or so.
Renato "Babalu" Sobral - Not sure if the UFC would want him back, or how Dana feels about him, but he's always been one of my favorite fighters.
Joachim Hansen - I love him, that's why.
Gegard Mousasi - Rising star, i think he would do great.
Allistair Overeem - Probably one of the best heavyweight strikers out there these days, i'd like to see him.
Aleksander Emelianenko - Always exciting.

If i could only choose one it would most likely be JZ, id love to see him and Penn throw down. If i could choose a few id bring AA, Timmy, Barnett, Aleks, Mirko and Fedor. Mabeys Overeem. Takes the HW division from the weakest to a more exciting div. than the the LHW imo.

Most of the "must haves" have already been named, so how about some good "draft picks"? (e.g. guys who aren't elite fighters, but who could be candidates to take a step up in competition)


A Half-Dozen For the UFC:
Brett Rogers
Dave Herman
Billy Evangelista
Deividas Taurosevicius
Satoru Kitaoka
Kazuo Misaki (I thought he'd be obvious, but I don't think he's been mentioned yet)

A Half-Dozen For the WEC:
Wilson Reis
Bao Quach
Bendy Casimir
Jay Hieron
Masakatsu Ueda
and get Akira Kikuchi back in the cage. Guy's only 30.

he has really fallen off the face of the earth, the guy was top ten everywhere just about a year and a half ago. i cant believe hes only 30, seems like hes been around forever, but he didnt fight at all this year and i have no idea whats up with him. im glad someone mentioned him though, its been awhile since ive seen anything about him.

He retired.

I think he's still "in the biz", though, as a training partner of Kid Yamamoto. So I imagine he could be in game-shape with a few months to train, which seems to be the rule of thumb anyway.

I remember reading about it a while ago, but it wasn't BIG NEWS, no. I just looked for a reference, and couldn't find one, besides Wikipedia.
