Here's my list:

HW: Fedor Emilianenko- Self explanitory, he's the best unsigned fighter in the division, and most fans want to see him there.

LHW: Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou- He's very young, has been incredibly exciting in his big bouts, and will most likely be a very good and entertaining fighter for many years. I.E. a good investment.

MW: Denis Kang- He's very good, well rounded, and seems to improve greatly each time out.

WW: Takanori Gomi- Very Dominant and exciting fighter, would be IMO much more competitive (and sucessful) at 170 in the UFC. (And yes, he can make 170 and be in fighting shape, he walks around a good 12 + pounds more than that.)

LW: Joachim Hansen- Undoubtedly The most exciting and arguably the best fighter that can easily make this weight.

Who do you guys want to see in each Weight Division ASAP?

Sokoudjou could actually sign with ufc. LHW is already stacked man that would be so insane hopefully it happens.

Fedori Da man
SOkoudjou or Lil NOG- can't decide
Kang- Exciting and well rounded
Aoki- Sick jits
Gomi- Should stay at LW if wants to be any kind of contender IMO
Featherweight- Kid to WEC . Him and Faber would be awesome , but I think Yamamoto takes it

HW - Fedor, could there be anyone else.........maybe Barnett

LHW - Lil' Nog or Arona

MW - Everyone seems to have forgot about him but without a doubt for me anyway it would have to be Ruthless Robbie Lawler

WW - Nick Diaz and Gomi need in ASAP!

LW - I'm going with Gilbert Melendez and Aoki

FW - We need to see Jens or Urijah vs Kid yamamoto very soon!
