Sean McCorkle is past the days of fighting for any other reason than cash.

So what better way to make more green than to piggyback off a few aging legends?

After he beats Stefan Struve (20-4 MMA, 4-2 UFC) tomorrow at UFC 124, McCorkle (10-0 MMA, 1-0 UFC) said, he'd like to up his earning potential against fighters whose best days are behind them.

"Preferably once they're on their last legs and are no longer very competitive," McCorkle told MMAjunkie.com Radio (www.mmajunkie.com/radio). "Like when Mike Tyson fought Larry Holmes, or when Holmes fought Ali way past [Ali's] prime."

The somewhat-serious UFC heavyweight said he already has a few names in mind.

"I'd like to have maybe (Antonio Rodrigo) Nogueira in two or three years and (Brock) Lesnar in 10, maybe," he said. "I keep telling people I'd love to fight Mirko 'Cro Cop' (Filipovic) after Struve.

"People think I'm crazy, and then I remind them that Mark Hunt beat Mirko when 'Cro Cop' was in his prime. Especially if the 'Cro Cop' that fought Frank Mir (at UFC 119) shows up. You fight a guy like that, and you've got nothing to lose and everything to gain."

Interesting MMAth. That theory may hold a certain amount of water. He is right about not being ready for Nog or Lesnar, and I wouldn't be shocked to see him beat Cro Cop. He is a friggin huge guy!

Mark Coleman would be a good fight.
