I would love to see Frank Shamrock vs. Anderson Silva.
I think it would be a good fight. IMO Silva would ko Shamrock, but Shamrock does have the skill set to win that fight.
I know this fight will never happen in the UFC because for the deep hatred that Shamrock and Dana have for each other.

Lindland. Yeah, he's getting up there in age but he's still a top MW and history has shown that the hatchet can be buried.

I voted Robbie Lawler !!

Filho is already with WEC who is control by the UFC.

Kang just got KO against a good guy but not a top 5 guys !!

Shamrock, no need to have another Shamrock in the UFC for a while !! LOL

Ninja need to increase his level of competitiveness before thinking about the UFC level.

Lindland, well, if he want to come to the UFC it is ok with me but he is not the guy that i want to see the most !!

If the question was who is most likely to come to the UFC it would be Robbie Lawler.

He has shown that he has improved, he is currently an assistant coach on TUF and I think the door is open to him right now if he wants to come back.

I also think Ninja could be a good option to sign and Filho could move up at anytime.

Robbie Lawler for me, i'm a big fan of him and i think he can beat anderson silva

I chose Matt for the reason i think he could beat anderson silva i would love to see robbie come back to the ufc but i dont think he would be able to beat anderson silva they both have great striking but i think andersons is better and im not sure how much robbies chin can take ( he did get knocked out by nick diaz, and he isnt nearly as good as silva) and silva has great power ask chris leben, rish franklin, and nate marquardt along with a slew of others i think matt would just have a better chance at beating silva becuase of his skill set its going to be hard to find a better striker than silva that can take his punches. I think silva might be one of the top 5 strikers in the world

I've love to see Silva fight David Loiseau (if david can get a few more wins under his belt and get back up into the big league)

I chose Filho because a fight with him and Silva would undoubtably prove whose number one in the world at middleweight, i truly believe Filho could hang with Silva, im not saying he would win but he would have a way better showing than franklin, leben, lutter, and marquardt did.

I know Lindland has the best chance to beat Anderson but id prefer to see Lawler as it would be a better fight, id also really love Baroni to be signed as he would fit in very nicely right now
