I would like to see Mayhem and McCullough personally. They deserve it and have worked so hard for it, few more fights in the WEC and Mayhem should be moved to UFC, McCullough can move in with the Lightweights and really heat up that Division even more, Double Championship opportunity, and he can do it, who do all of you wanna see?

NICK DIAZ!!!!

Really man.....i wonder why he got cut from there....there is no reason to cut a fighter for losing close decisions to top fighters,and also making ever single one of his fights very entertaining if not Fight of the Night!


..and also the obvious...Fedor,Shogun,Wandy,Sokoudjou,Mark Hunt....Mach and Gomi..even though i dont think he has a chance in hell in the UFC

Mach is comming back to the UFC. I would love to see Shinya Aoki in the UFC, he would own the lightweight division.

Agree on everyone you mention, but Savant Young!??? He is no where near the caliber needed to contend in the UFC.

I love savant young, he's my favorite IFL fighter. I think he would do alright in UFC he would have to step it up a little but he would do well

His real name is evangelista santos, he's fought in PRIDE a couple of times but he's mostly been in smaller venues. He's not really a great fighter but he's pretty entertaining to watch because he's so aggressive. You can pretty much bet that his fights are going to end in KO/TKO, the problem is he's just as likely to be the one getting knocked out as the other dude. lol.

I don't think youre giving him enough credit... hes a pretty bad ass fighter, and as far as him getting KOed, Manhoef, Pele and Shogun arent slouches...

Cung Le for sure!!! I think he could be champion. His skills are mind blowing.

I didn't say he was a BAD fighter, just that he's not a great fighter. He's decent, but he's too reckless and it ends up getting him knocked out by inferior fighters sometimes. He's like the rest of the chute boxe guys... they never seem to touch their jiu-jitsu, and that's fine when you know you're able to out-strike your opponent, but against someone like manhoef you should be taking it to the ground ASAP.

Anyway, he's entertaining like I said, he's just the kind of fighter who is never going to be able to beat any A class fighters.

I would love to see kid yamamoto fight in the UFC, but I'm pretty sure that would not be allowed unless he were to gain some weight.

But at the same time, Cyborg had Manhoef KO'ed on his feet a couple of times in that fight...

Did you see the fight against Zikic? Cyborg lost the descion, but damn did he do some damage with leg kicks. I am sure James won't ever walk the same.

Santos has some skills, and always makes for an exciting fight, but his ground game is not close to being where it needs to be. He also doesn't seem to ever put it all together when he fights. His last fight he had great take down defense, and accurate deadly strikes, but he didn't have the agression he normally has. He also lacked the gas tank to win.

his fight with manhoef has to be FOTY or maybe even of ALL TIME (slobberknockers)
