what are some fighters who are struggling in ufc that you would like to see move to wec for a while?
I'd say Houston alexander
Kendall Grove (if he loses another fight),
marcus davis (he needs to get a ground game),
Jorge Gurgel,
Chris Lytle (not really struggling but I dont think he could beat the top ww fighters),
Corey Hill (he's not ready for the ufc competition yet)
Josh Burkman,
Marvin Eastman (he gets KO'd to much in ufc)
Jason Lambert

You should be able to do multi-league matches (only since its all zuffa anyway) WEC fighters should fight with UFC fighters more often

Davis has a ground game. he pulled off a very impressive armbar over Paul Taylor and has worked intensely on his ground game for 3 years straight. he lost to Mike Swick who is a top fighter imo, and i think there are plenty of other fighters at WW that deserved to be demoted way before him. the man was on an 11 fight win streak for christ's sake.

but now that he's fighting the better competition I think he'll be outclassed

Corey Hill shows promise, maybe a good run in the WEC will do him good

I can see where that original list is coming from, but I can't really get excited about guys who are struggling at the end of their careers stepping down in competition. The people I would be excited to see are guys who I think would fight better at the lighter weight classes. In other combat sports the 135-145 pound range is one of the most competitive there is and I think it could be in MMA, too. Guys like Gurgel and Pulver should really be fighting there for that reason and, if they hit a wall at 155, Franca, Edgar and others could probably make that move as well.

Rich Franklin should move to the WEC and fight for the Middle Weight belt.
I think as long as he is in the UFC he is in Limbo.

Jason Lambert
Melvin Guillard
Corey Hill
Chris Lytle
Frankie edgar @ 145(he would be a huge test for Uriah)

yeah but at least let him get hat chance. he lost only once out of his last 12 fights, so i don't think he should even be in the discussion for demotion to the WEC. that is all i was trying to say. and don't doubt Marcus just yet.
