Here's my list:

HW: Fedor Emilianenko- Self explanitory, he's the best unsigned fighter in the division, and most fans want to see him there.

LHW: Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou- He's very young, has been incredibly exciting in his big bouts, and will most likely be a very good and entertaining fighter for many years. I.E. a good investment.

MW: Denis Kang- He's very good, well rounded, and seems to improve greatly each time out.

WW: Takanori Gomi- Very Dominant and exciting fighter, would be IMO much more competitive (and sucessful) at 170 in the UFC. (And yes, he can make 170 and be in fighting shape, he walks around a good 12 + pounds more than that.)

LW: Joachim Hansen- Undoubtedly The most exciting and arguably the best fighter that can easily make this weight.

Who do you guys want to see in each Weight Division ASAP?

Sokoudjou could actually sign with ufc. LHW is already stacked man that would be so insane hopefully it happens.

Fedori Da man
SOkoudjou or Lil NOG- can't decide
Kang- Exciting and well rounded
Aoki- Sick jits
Gomi- Should stay at LW if wants to be any kind of contender IMO

Anyone else think Aoki would do really bad in the UFC? I think he would probably fight in the welterweight division and that division is stacked with strong wrestlers. We all know how Aoki has nearly no stand-up and his TDs are not that great.

Aoki would be forced to either 1) learn to strike to setup his TD, 2) pull guard so he can get the fight to the ground (like he sometimes does), or 3) do some crazy flying submissions if he wants to do well in that division. Oh, and I am not sure about the regulations for wearing his rainbow pants which gives him the friction he needs to hold down his opponents, etc.

P.S. I love Aoki so I am not hating on him. That's just my opinion.
