Gomi - I would love a Gomi v Sherk fight.

Fedor - Just because

Shogun - man, Chuck v Shogun would be nuts.

Vera - Get his a$$ back, I want to see it get kicked.

Horodecki - I would like to see a Horodecki v Fisher fight, I think Spencer would take it easy.

The 145 pound division - Kid v Faber?



I agree with all of these choices... But IMhumbleO Sherk's wrestling and control would dominate Gomi, but it is a good style matchup...

Shogun, I'd personally love to see a rematch against Page (I heard Rampage was injured coming into their fight, don't know if that's true)

You're right about Horodecki and Fisher... I would really like to see Horodecki fight Huerta...

And I agree most of all to the 145lbs div... Faber vs Kid would be phenominal, and the lighter weightclasses always seem to put on a great show...

Oh, ya, and Fedor for sure... And while we're at it, why don't we throw Vera at him... Welcome back Brandon

Does Ernesto have any ground skills? I don't know a lot about him, other than he is world class in his Kick Boxing. He would be extremely dangerous if he is a blue belt or higher in BJJ.

ernesto (hoost) is too old to start mma, although he would forever be one of the best, if not the best kickboxer ever

as far as I know fedor only went to his gym once while hoost was injured and they have never actually trained together, hoost only watched fedor training.

Definitely...he's a good fighter, but he belongs in WEC. In the UFC, he would be middle of the pack, as was shown when GSP dominated him. He has a pretty strong following, and can be a contender in a slightly smaller organization, which is a perfect fit for WEC right now.

Fedor, he needs some new competition.

Then I'd want Wanderlei and Shogun of course.

My thoughts exactly, he would really shake up the LW division...

Uno is the kind of fighter you can never count out, no matter who he is facing, he always has a chance.

Obviously all the big names like Fedor, Lawler, Filho, and Gomi. But another guy i would like to see in there is Ben Rothwell, he is beating everyone in IFL and has gone to a decision with Tim Sylvia, so i think he should get a shot in the UFC

I'll leave out all the Pride guys that haven't already signed. I'm hoping Pride stays open and they just have the MMa superbowl once a year. i will also leave out WEC guys , as they are already Zuffa affliliated. As for people not affiliated with Pride/UFC.

Matt Lindland
Alex Emelienko
Kid Yamamoto
Cung Lee
Frank Shamrock- just because I want to see him get pummeled
Dennis Kang- even his pride contract has expired last I heard
Josh "the punk" Thompson
Melvin Manhoef
Brock Lesnar- The big ex-pro wrestler one
Antionio Silva- If he can make 265
Rico Rodriguez
Nick Diaz
Chris Horodecki
Bart Palaszewski
Shaolin Rabeiro
Ben Rothwell
Vladamir Matushenko
Akira Kikuchi
Jake Sheilds

nick diaz no doubt. one thing i hate about the ufc is the way they throw away fighters after a few losses. its one thing if you lose to a can or dont put on a show, but if you fight the best and put on a show and prove taht you are competitive against everyone that you fight then you deserve to stick around. no one is closer to being a ufc superstar than diaz. a few of those fights go the other way and he is up there with the best, making the big bucks.

unfortunately he is gonna have a tough time ever winning a belt because he matches up poorly imo with some of the stud wrestlers. theres more to life than belts though.

another person i would have loved to see was sokoudjo (however the hell you spell it)

I know he has a bad record but i would love to see Cyborg in there

Nice list. Bring back The Janitor! No on in the UFC is capable of pummeling Shamrock, but I would like to see him clear out a few divisions.

Akihiro Ghono! Lets see him dance to the cage to with his trainers.

Why does everyone want to see a fourth-rate fighter like Diaz back? Hopefully Gomi breaks both orbitals and KOs him next time so all this nonsense can stop.

Diaz didn't get thrown away after a few losses. Diaz's problem was his attitude, from the quotes I've seen, and of course, everyone knows his attitude. He's had tons of horribly bad press from interviews, and he was pissed about not being allowed to corner his brother. I'm sure he blames the UFC in some dumb abstract thinking only he can come up with. Diaz should have manned up, and taken a contract and showed everyone how he beat Gomi, he should be doing in the UFC.

But I do agree, I want to see Diaz in the UFC, especially after the Gomi fight.
Others I want to see:

Gomi <--- Diaz-Gomi II potential
Lindland
Barnett <--- Easily a champion contender
Lesnar <--- Would be interesting to see him take on Big Nog, who is infamous
for taking on huge guys and winning
Aleks and Fedor <---- Obvious choices, but Aleks won't get a visa.

I don't want to see the IFL guys just yet, I think Horodecki is somewhat flat this season, squeaking out decisions. The Janitor is a very good fighter, but he hit roadblocks against UFC/PRIDE guys before.
