With the IFL close to failing, my question is where do you want your favorite fighters to end up???

My favorites....

Chris Horodecki - Hope he ends up with either WEC, or the UFC

Benji Radach - 1st choice WEC 2nd Elite XC

Rory Markham - WEC

Delson Heleno UFC or WEC

Wagnney Fabiano - WEC

Vladimir Matyushenko - Elite xc or UFC

Bart Palaszewski - WEC

These are pretty much my favs out of the IFL to my knowlege haven't left yet..... I would like to see most head at least to the WEC with a few worthy of some bigger shows

i want Jim Miller to come to the UFC. he has a lot of potential and i think he is UFC material. he can make some waves at 155 with a potential rematch against Edgar and would make a for a great fight with Griffin.

Ryan Schultz should go to the WEC, he is a talented fighter, but he has proven to be vulnerable against better competition.

I hope Roy Nelson makes his way to the UFC Heavyweight Division where talent is needed. He definately has the Skill Set to be a Top Contender. Waggeny Fabiano's a Top 5 Featherweight so Dream will pick him up for their 145 lbs Tournament. I think the UFC will let Jay Hieron have another shot seeing as he's done Tremendous in the IFL. Brad Blackburn is also sick, I see him signing with Elite XC or Affliction. And most of all, Vladdy needs to be in the UFC, he's a Top 10 Light Heavyweight imo, he Beat Little Nog wrecked the Renzo Gracie Prodigy in Jamal Patterson. The UFC LHW Division is next. His Wrestling is hard to adapt to and he's nearly impossible to Submit.

As much as I'm a chris Horodecki fan, his takedown defense isnt good enough for him to be successful in the ufc especially in the cage where takedowns can be easier. He would get tkod on the ground by almost every wrestler. It would be interesting to put him in the ufc though. I think if the UFC Gets him theyll really shelter him though t

sorry, let me reiterate. he has proven to be vulnerable against upper tier competition. i wasn't saying that he was vulnerable to people who were better than him (which of course he is...bit i wouldn't mention something that obvious) but rather he seems to wilt against quality opposition.

that is actually a great idea...he would be great for TUF as he his definitely more taleneted than the people they have found of late.

Didnt do that great? His only losses were to Arlovski and Tito and he beat Little Nog, Pedro Rizzo, Yuki Kondo, and Travis Wiuff. Thats pretty impressive. Plus since that time hes dropped down to LHW and hasnt lost since, albeit against limited but not terrible competition. He beat Tim Boetsch last year, which should be enough to get him another shot.
