    New Signing to fight winner of Daley/Woodley for title?

    Post  rudeboyben84 on Tue Jul 05, 2011 6:29 pm

    Coker has said that Woodley/Daley will likely fight a new signing to be announced soon for the title. He said he might give the new signing one tune up fight or else put him straight into a title fight...

    Does anyone else think it could be Marquardt?

    I still dont fully understand SF and UFC's relationship or what is going to happen in the future... Was Marquardt fired from Zuffa? Just UFC? Could he go to SF?

    SF is in an odd position with Melendez probabally wanting to go to UFC after his next fight, Diaz already there, the winner of the GP looking to move to UFC and Jacare having no opponents, surely its only a matter of time before SF closes shop and moves their guys to UFC or cuts loose the lower ranked ones....

    Wow Scanning the Ww's on fight matrix 9/10 good Ww's are signed to UFC already. Bellator have a few but I dont know if they are leaving...

    Siyar Bahadurzada is an option, fight matrix have him at 12th!

    http://www.sherdog.com/fighter/Siyar-Bahadurzada-5453

    Jordan Mein just beat Whitemare, they have him ranked 22nd

    http://www.sherdog.com/fighter/Jordan-Mein-6749

    I suppose either could really walk into a shot...

    And Maby a stretch because he has been up at Mw for a while I think but Jesse Taylor is doing well recently, if he would move back to Ww he could be a contender....

    Im really struggling to think of anyone unless they have signed one of Bellators guys.

    'New signing' could mean someone from the UFC.

    SF needs contenders badly, and I'm sure the UFC wouldn't miss someone like Thiago Alves too much.

    Zuffa presumably want SF to make money, so why not?

    Maybe it'll be a good way for them to get rid of Jon Fitch.

    I read in an interview that Melendez isn't going anywhere for the time being. It makes sense as well. Unlike Diaz, Melendez has enough potential, competitive opponents and unlike the WW division, the UFC LW division has plenty of contenders.

    As for who's coming in, Askren vs Daley would probably be the biggest WW fight outside the UFC. Other than that it could be Siyar or Mein as you said. Mein has lost to a lot of poor competition but he has some solid wins (whitemare, Burkman, Riggs) and is only 21. He fights a shit load, he's already fought 4 times this year and fought 6 last year. Siyar is quite exciting to watch and him vs Daley would be a stand-up war, but he hasn't really beaten anyone. Santiago and Misaki both beat him and they are the best opponents on his record.

    Then there might be the case of Nate, but I don't if Dana actually has any power over whether SF are allowed to sign him or not.

    Ben Wikipedia says Jesse Taylor is scheduled to face Hector Lombard on some Australian event.

    The UFC won't get rid of Fitch, Alves could be a possibility though.

    I think it's going to be Askren as well. I think him and Alvarez will both fight for the SF belts in the next 8 months or so.

    According to St Bjorn Rebney Askren has a Champions Clause in his contract my guess It will be an In house fringe Contender like a Kos (If his ego allows It), Kampmann or Johnson.

    Who are people picking in the Daley vs Woodley fight BTW? I think it could be a tough fight for Daley, Woodley is a top wrestler and we all know how badly Daley deals with wrestlers. Woodley is a two time All American, a High School State Championship and a Big 12 Conference Championship. He was a runner up as well for both those achievements as well and was a runner up for the USA University Freestyle National Championship. I think he definitley has enough in his arsenal to put Daley on his back and keep him there.

    Is Marquardt definitely banned from Strikeforce aswell?

    I can see Woodley vs Daley being very similar to Koscheck vs Daley. Woodley will take him down for 15 minutes, Daley's only chance is a lucky punch.

    I think Nate has fucked himself out of working for Zuffa again.

    Chelsea, I'm going with Woodley. I see it as a repeat of the Daley-Kos fight.

    That's what I see happening as well, Daley's take down defense isn't good enough for someone like Woodley IMO.

    Nate is supposed to be in talks with Bellator, I reckon he gets a slap on the wrist 6 month suspension or the likes and we see him fight Askren (Shame Saunders is injured Id have loved to see Saunders vs Nate)

    I reckon Daley gets dryhumped for 15mins though Im really hoping he wins.

    Rebney was on MMA live last night saying it's not often that you may get the chance to sign the #6 best MW in the world,so if possible,he'd love Nate to join Bellator.

    He also said he'd be up for him fighting at WW and MW.

    Looks like Lombard and Askren(who have both now called him out)could have a future opponent.

    Nate is just the kind of signing Bellator need at the moment.

    Have to admit though,after Nate's sacking and the shit that is surrounding him,I didn't think he would have much power in negotiating with another Org,yet Bellator seem to be the ones chasing him pretty hard and not the other way around.
    I'd of thought Nate would've been the one chasing hard and asking bellator for a chance to get his career back on track.

    Nate might not be a huge loss to the UFC MW/WW roster as they have more than enough talent to cover it(though I do think he is still a loss talent wise to their division,he's a top 10 MW no matter how you look at it)he will be a huge gain for Bellator and will finally give a couple of their stars a true challenge.

    Hope he signs as soon as he can,the sounds of Lombard vs Nate is enough to put a smile on any fans face.
