    Which non Zuffa fighter do you want to see in the UFC?

    Post  rudeboyben84 on Sat Sep 17, 2011 3:13 am

    Ok Lads two fighters in every devision. What 2 non Zuffa fighters do you want to see come over to UFC?

    Hw: Fedor Emelianenko, Cole Konrad

    Lhw: Ricardo Arona, Minowaman

    Mw: Hector Lombard, Mamed Khalidov

    Ww: Ben Askren, Kazushi Sakuraba

    Lw: Eddie Alvarez, Shinya Aoki

    Fw: Patricio "pitbul" Freire, Joachim Hansen

    Bw: Joe Warren, Hideo Tokoro

    Saku probabally seems like a strange pick given the stage of his career but Id love for him to have a fight in UFC again before he retires. James Toney might still have a fight left on his contract! Laughing Failing that if Hughes looks old and shit against Kos it would be a fight that im sure would interst him, one of Americas biggest legends against one of Japans. He would also be a great way to crack the Japanes market.

    Stick Minowa in with someone who can bang like Diabate whos probabally top top 20 Lhw in UFC or maby Luiz Cane coming off a loss? Im sure people write him off after the Ishii performance but fuck it I reckon win loose or draw he makes a fun fight and he did spark Soko after all!

    Went for Hellboy over Crusher but whoever wins that id like to see at Fw I reckon they could be a serious contender.

    Who would you all want to see?

    Good thread Ben.

    Here goes.

    HW - Cole Konrad and Shamil Abdurahimov

    LHW - Fedor (just don't think he can cope with the HW anymore) and I'd kill to see Minowaman in UFC.

    MW - Hector Lombard and Alexander Shlemenko

    WW - Ben Askren and Paul Daley

    LW - Shinya Aoki and Eddie Alvarez

    FW - Hell Boy and Alexis Villa

    BW - Joe Warren and Akiyo Nishiura

    I've tried to pick fighters that would either do well in the division (IMO), or just guys that I would love to see more of, and unfortunately, this probably means fighting under the zuffa banner.

    Just read an interview with Bas Boon saying that John Olaf Einemo has been re-signed to the UFC and Siyar Bahadurzada has just been offered a UFC contract too

    I would love to see Hideo Tokoro get a shot in the UFC IMO he is the most exciting fighter in MMA win or lose.

    Also would like to see Taisuke Okuno, Mizuto Hirota, Kikuno, Alvarez, and Lombard in the UFC too.
