    Just curious as to who you guys think will be the last fighter left in the UFC when all is said and done who fought at least once in Pride. Started thinking about it after watching Hunt's most recent fight

    HWs
    Mark Hunt
    Josh Barnett
    Fabricio Werdum
    Alistair Overeem
    LHW
    Yushin Okami
    Shogun
    Little Nog*
    MW
    Vitor Belfort
    Nick Diaz*
    Anderson Silva
    WW

    Call me crazy, but Nick Diaz will be the last one

    Although it will be just one more fight

    MElendez and Mousasi who came in at the very end of pride are the best bets.

    Shogun seems like the type of guy that won't give it up until late.

    Of those listed? I'd say Overeem, Werdum, and Lawler will stick around the longest.

    Hunt's already talking about retirement.
    Melendez has only been fighting once a year since 2014.
    Shogun has only fought once a year since 2015.
    Overeem is younger than Werdum but has more miles.
    Lawler probably wont return for another year and by then he might feel like hanging it up.

    If Mousasi returns, I'd say him, otherwise I think Werdum.

    Based on his demeanor following the Ngannou loss, I wouldn't be surprised, though I hope he does (at some point). He's been knocked out a lot.

    I will guess nick Diaz. He’s not that old and doesn’t fight often so his body will hold up. I could see him fighting once every few years for the next 10-15 years

    Logic dictates that Diaz and Lawler have 1 or 2 good fights in them. The rest of them need to retire now, sadly.

    Holy shit. Fucking Moose is still a monster and has a good 5 years left. Noone will ever associate him with PRIDE tho.
