If Nick Newell really wants to fight top-level guys who could help him get to the UFC, he's found a home to prove he can do it.

So he wants to use the WSOF roster of fighters to build a name for himself and eventually end up in the UFC. That's a lot of B.S. and wishful thinking IMO. List guys on their roster that would give him the level of notoriety he would need to be invited to the UFC. Hard pressed? Here's why, they don't have that roster! Dude should have signed with Bellator if that is what he really wanted.

He'll get handled by a legit striker or wrestler. I would like to see him fight Burkmam, assuming he loses to Fitch

Newell to WW is a horrible idea.

Tyson Griffen
Ronny Torres
Pat Audinwood
Jz Calvalcante
John Gunderson
Dan Lauzon
Brian Cobb

I'm if he beat 3-4 of these guys the UFC would be looking a lot harder at him.
