Who are some fighters the UFC should be attempting to sign?

I would say Eddie Alvarez, Sergei Khartinov, and David Baron.

David baron is already signed and supposed to be fighting at UFC 89, no opponent has been set yet though.

Well Im going to say jay hieron because he is a free agent right now and he was IFL champ.

Give me...
Aoki, Hellboy, Fedor, Barnett, Alvarez, Kid, Mousasi, and Jacare. I would guess that the person out of that list that has the biggest chance of getting signed is Aoki though. Add Lil Nog in there too.

I disagree. I think Aoki has a very small chance of signing, he is a big star in Japan, and is getting top $dollars over there, coming into the UFC/ US few people would know him. Same reason why Gomi + Kid probably will never come, because they are already huge there.

Best chance of Signing->Eddie Alvarez Once his deal with DREAM is gon, and he returns to strikeforce (or is it elite?) the UFC will probably offer him a juicy contract.

Lil Nog i would have thought be signed by now, with His bro in the UFC already, why not get him?......

I believe Alvarez actually belongs to Adrenaline and was lent to Dream and EXC. If his stock rises enough, then he would be too costly for Adrenaline to use this early in the game and I could see Monte Cox let him go to take on the UFC and make a name in the states.

I see what you are saying. The reason I thought Aoki had the best chance is because of an article a couple of weeks ago. I think he hinted at wanting to come over to the states. I'll try to find that article but I'm not sure if I read it on here or another site.

Take it for what it's worth But yea, this is where I heard it. I'm not sure if this is a very credible site though.

I would like to see how Manhoef would do against the stacked LHW division of the UFC. His strength and speed are crazy. Manhoef is a guy I think could give Machida problems, because he isn't afraid to get hit coming in and is strong enough to stay away from a takedown. There is a lot of fights that I think would be great for him inside the UFC.

Incase you are wondering, the caps lock version is far superior
fullerene
7/29/08 3:45:14PM
Fedor, Antonio silva, Aleks, Kharitonov, Arlovski, Ricco, Kimbo, Fujita, Roger Gracie
Arona, Yoshida, Belfort
Lindland, Le, F. Shamrock, Lawler, Misaki, Trigg, Kang, Akiyama, Jacare
Condit, Shields
Gomi, Aoki, Alvarez, Hansen, JZ, Kid, Shaolin, M. Garcia



It's pretty obvious where the strengths and weaknesses lie above 170 (below 170 is just stacked).

kharitonov, fedor, barnett, arlovski, sylvia, crocop.... Basically an entire heavyweight division would be nice.

Are you talking about remy bonjasky??? I've never heard anything about him wanting to fight in MMA. I'm not sure if you're joking, talking about someone else, or engaging in wishful thinking.

The UFC needs quality middleweights above all else.I'd say pick up Lawler and Misaki,maybe even Akiyama.Dennis Kang should be easy to sign now that he's lost a few fights in a row.He'd be a quality addition to the division.

I think they really need to get back Arlovski.He's the only heavyweight free agent out there that can really give Nog a run for his money in the UFC (outside of Fedor of course).You can all give up on Fedor ever signing with the UFC.His management was only going to sign the deal if Fedor could fight in Russia,and they wanted it to be a UFC/M-1 co-promotion.Gimmie a break.And forget Barnett ever going back to the UFC-he made the mistake of burning all his bridges,and they'll never give him a second thought.He was out of the UFC long before it got big,and the average fan has no idea who he is.

I'd like to see Aoki in the UFC at 155,along with JZ and Hellboy.

WB.
