    Robert Peralta off sinking ship and signs with UFC

    Robert Peralta signs with UFC and fights Mike Lullo at UFC Fight Night 25

    At this stage I think there are a load of SF fighters fighting for their career and most of the top ranked fighters are already jumping ship.

    SF could end with the Hw GP which is the end of the year isnt it? I woulndt be supprised if that was the TV deal over and the fighters either going to UFC or being out of a job.

    Peralta is their top ranked Fw, Diaz was top Ww, Hendo top Lhw, Overeem top Hw and they are more or less all in the UFC now.

    Which fighters do you all think are keeping a job? I think the next few cards have fights where the winner will likely keep a job and go to the UFC and the Looser cut

    Who you all calling to move over?

    In the next card id imagine the winner of the Hw fights will keep their job, both finalists will be top ranked heavies.

    Josh Barnett vs. Sergei Kharitonov
    Antonio Silva vs. Daniel Cormier
    Ronaldo Souza vs. Luke Rockhold
    Muhammed Lawal vs. Roger Gracie
    Pat Healy vs. Maximo Blanco
    Evangelista Santos vs. Jordan Mein
    Mike Kyle vs. Marcos Rogerio de Lima
    Rafael Cavalcante vs. Yoel Romero Palacio

    I could see all the winners here getting a UFC contract and maby Jacare even coming off a loss. Suppose it depends how many fighters UFC plan on keeping.

    Babalu says he doesnt know when he is fighting next, guys like Werdum, Kennedy, Lawler etc.. we have no idea when they are fighting.

    barnett is the ? mark here, dana is not his biggest fan, but if he wins then surley they will sign him, i think silva and cormier are dead certs to get a ufc contract imo

    jacare king mo roger certs,

    I think he probably doesn't, although we'll see what happens. We all know Dana can be a massive hypocrite when it makes good business sense!

    Daley should be in UFC, he is clearly that level but he seems to be taking a lot of fights outside SF (2 in the next 2 months) I think he is just keeping his options open at this point and seeing wether UFC have a grudge against him. IMO he was unlucky to loose to Woodley.


    I reckon Barnett is ok to fight in UFC, he is such a big character and a legend of the devision plus him and Dana seem to have kissed and made up so I reckon if he beats Sergei regardless of if he looses the finals he will be a top 10 heavy so UFC will want him.

    Id Ryan couture will be on a UFC live card if he wins in challengers next too!

    I wonder about Lawler who has lost 4 of his last 6!

    Mousasi is one that worries me, Im guessing UFC want to snap up all ranked fighters under the SF banner but he is Dream champ and fighting at Dream 17... I hope he moves to the UFC where there is come competition.

    I wonder if Werdum will get a fight before SF closes? My thoughts were that he would fight one of the loosers of the quarter finals when the Finals are happening to get him to come into UFC coming off a win...

    I wonder what fighters UFC will take on a loss?

    Lawler is lucky in the sense that even though he's lost alot recently, he's a UFC vet and is also in a pretty shallow division. Oh and he's an exciting fighter Smile
