Jorge Lopez looked OK, I think he deserves another go.

i'm ok with pretty much all these fighters. i though kamal shalarous (?) was pretty exciting to watch. he was a great wrestler, olympian for iran or some shit, and was always swinging for the fences. oh well. there has been so many new fighters added to the roster that the ufc really doesnt have time to get all these guys fights, especially if they have losing records in the ufc.

Is Heath Herring still on the site?


Don't know why Florian was removed, I thought they still kept retired fighters on it.

...yeah, seems harsh to be taken down just hours after retiring.

Dongi Yang should be given one more fight IMO.


Soto I thought at least was an interesting fighter.

My thoughts exactly. If the ufc is looking for exciting fights, they should have kept him.

Kenny Florian and James Wilks are both retired so I can understand why the ufc would remove them from there list of active fighters

Brock Lesnar and Randy Couture are still on the site.

Leave Kenny up, been with the UFC forever it seems. Or have a retired fighters section.

Jorge Lopez is getting jacked. IMO, he beat Sadollah and from what I hear is planning a move to LW. I feel bad for him.

Kinda thought Escudero was talented...just didnt seem to take it too seriously...(ie being out of shape)...other than that I wish Yang would get another fight...maybe lopez
