If UFC treating top Japanese fighters like VIPs recently is any indication, possibly. It's a thinking recently fueled by UFC signing Japanese star Satoshi Ishii (although he might not fulfill the deal) and Dana White's saying he will bring Norifumi "Kid" Yamamoto to WEC when his FEG contract is up.

“We’d bring [Yamamoto] in and give him a fight first, and then if he wins that fight, we’d let him fight Miguel (Torres),” said White.

Eddie's signed with Bellator FC so he's off the market, at least for now. Aoki I'd have no problems with.

I just don;t see how the WEC can afford Kid, he is one of the biggest draws in Japan, and he must make over 500,000 per, not to mention endorsements, how can the WEC come close?
