With the IFL on the outs where do you all think these fighter will end up?
I hope the UFC picks up some of them. Ben Rothwell would be a great add to the HW division. Chris Horodecki is a killer at 155. Ryan Shulttz also at 155 is a great fighter.

horedecki and schultz would get wrecked in the ufc.. nelson would be mediocre. I think you'll see them filter out into elite xc and the other orgs but probably not the ufc

I didn't know the IFL was on the outs? I thought they were just getting rid of the team aspect.

Yeah same here. They have only had one event which was sold out, and they have a television contract with HDNET for a few events, so I don't know where this sentiment is coming from either.

I watch quite a bit of IFL (because if its free and on basic cable, i will watch it) and heres my list of guys that the UFC should pick up from the IFL.

HW:
Ben Rothwell
Roy Nelson
Reese Andy

LHW:
Mike Whitehead
Vladmir Matyushenko (I realize hes been in the UFC but hes much more dangerous at LHW)
Andre Gusmao

MW:
Ryan Mcgivern
Matt Horwich

WW:
Jay Hieron
Mark Miller
Antonio Mckee

LW:
Ryan Schultz
Deividas Taurosevicius
Chris Horodecki

Also a special nomination to Wagnney Fabiano who is a top 5 FW in the world but cant really go to the UFC. I would love to see him and Faber fight in the WEC.

I think

Nelson
Heleno
Schultz
and
Radach (if he can get his neck problem fixed)

would be decent additions to the UFC

I think
Fabiano
Horodecki
Heiron
and
Horwich

would be solid additions to the WEC

and isnt Rothwell already a FA

Is Ben Rothwell the real deal? I would like to find out. He is the most important guy the IFL had. I do think this league will be around for one more year.
