Fighters You Wanna See In the UFC.
Posted by LR
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.
What roadblocks? AA at the top of his game? Or going to a decision with the LHW champ? That's laughable. Vlady is fit to take on anyone in the UFC.
And if you mean against Pride guys, he defeated Lil Nog (near impossible to do!).
The guy is one of the top fighters in the world with one of the best records, why wouldn't you want to see him in the UFC? Well, I guess I should expect such thinking from a Diaz fan.
He lost to AA and Tito, both top fighters in the UFC at that time, so yes, he hit roadblocks when he fought major names. He did beat Little Nog, I'll give him that, but you are talking about the UFC of today. There are fighters far better than AA and Tito nowadays, and I doubt he wants a piece of that, considering he's probably one of the higher paid fighters in IFL.
Lets not forget he's a natural LHW, AA shouldn't even factor in that much.
You underestimate Vlad, I'm not so sure Rampage could finish him. Would be a hell of a fight though.
Vlad deserves to be in the UFC more then 90% of the fighters currently in it. How anyone could argue to the contrary is unbelievable.
Fedor, Diaz, and Gomi, that's about it
I won't argue Vlad shouldn't be in the UFC, I'm just not sure he wants to be. It seems kind of ridiculous that the UFC didn't give him some kind of offer around the time the IFL was coming in. He's a very good fighter, I agree.
mark hunt and josh barnett also
kid yamamoto at 155. or even better, ufc starts a featherweight division with urijah faber and kid fighting for the vacant title.
Ben Rothwell......... I think he would DOMINATE.......
aaron wetherspoon and kermit cintron.....nuff said
I really cant think of anyone but Mculough and Faber (if he would gain some weight for lightweight division.
Faber is one of my fav fighter but idk if he would be good at 155 and in the ufc too.
these r the 10 fighters i would like to see in the ufc 1. Josh Barnett 2. Wanderlai Silva 3. Hidehiko Yoshida 4. Kazayuki Fujita 5 . Kid Yamamoto 6. Takanori Gomi 7 Fedor 8. Kazushi Sakuraba 9. Ricardo Arona 10 lil nog
Hayato "Mach" Sakurai
Satoru Kitaoka (Very tough fighter)
-Would definately improve the Middleweight division IMO
Would also like to add Dong Sik Yoon (Dont look at his record, look at his fights post Sakuraba fight, very tough fighter.)
Fedor & Alexsander Emelianenko
Sokodjou, Norifumi Yamamoto, Mach Sakurai, Luiz Azeredo, Serghei Kharitonov, Little Nog, Matt Lindland.
joachim hellboy hansen
WEC Champ urijah faber
Aoki, Mach, G.Melendez, Rob McCullough, Gomi, Jake Shields, Fedor, D.Kang
Fedor of course and Robbie Lawler and Chris Horodecki
I want to see Gabe Ruediger and Andy Wang fight.
I want to see Cung Le, Denis Kang, Gomi, and Melendez
I'd say the most intriguing matchups would be with Kang. Of course, Fedor is a given, but Kang would be an awesome addition.
I totally agree on McCullough. I feel he's extremely underrated and can definitely make a lot of noise in The UFC. He's got legit striking and great ground defense.
Fedor, robbie lawler, Nick diaz and gomi

I don't think the UFC will be too eager to bring over fighters like arona truthfully. His style of fighting is incredibly boring.
so tim sylvia and AA are exciting as of late?

WEC Champ urijah faber
he is a good fighter anf very fun to watch compete, but at 145. Faber says he walks around at 150-152, so he doesn't cut much weight and i feel he'd be to small for the better 55ers in the ufc. Hence his only loss is to tyson griffin, who was just to strong for faber
Sergei Kharitonov, too bad he went to k1 hero's tho, but im not sad, its a growing organization and Sergei will make it so much more attractive to follow.
