Someone Brought up the topic of mma in the olympics, who do you think should represent the USA in each weight class, im going to include one alternate in mine. If you want to add other countries go ahead, props if you can figure one out for a country other than US, Brazil, or Russia.

Team USA:
HW: Couture, Vera

LHW: Rampage, Liddell

MW: Franklin, Hendo

WW: Hughes, Serra

LW: Sherk, Penn

FW: Faber, Pulver

BW: ???

Anyway just thought it would be cool, I put Serra in there cuz he's the current champ anyone think they can put together a better team USA?

HW: Monson - Better? no, but I think he would represent the US well. Couture would be ideal, but Monson never gets a lot of press. I think he's a good dude.

LHW: Rampage

MW: Hendo

WW: Hughes

LW: Penn

FW: Faber

BW: Manny Tapia - Soon to be WEC champ.

Josh Barnett, man! Josh Barnett! Sheesh. How quickly people forget...

Oh, and Brazilians could be holding three UFC belts a year from now. We all better learn to pronounce their names properly. It's "Antonio Hodrigo Nogueira" and "Shogun Hua."

I thought Barnett, but like I said, I just like Monson. I don't think he would win and he's not even in my top ten HWs.
