    Was just reading about Majlinda Kelmendi's recent win as Kosovo's first ever medal winner. A gold medal in judo at that. She's also 112 lbs. and 25 and that just made me think of the women's flyweight division.

    I'm not saying she'd necessarily be a good fit, but UFC could get some great coverage from it. What with Kosovo being such a region of interest. After all sometimes it seems like 90 percent of the roster is either American or Brazilian.

    Any heavyweight Boxer, Judoka or Wrestler they can. That division needs new blood so bad.

    Any of the young A-level athletes.

    In no particular order:
    1) Gymnastics
    2) Japanese judo woman who beat her opponent even though she was 15lbs undersized.
    3) They should really make a play for female boxers seeing as there isn't much money or exposure in female boxing.

    She won't go to MMA because her pathetic mafia pseudo-state needs her to win medals in the Olympics, it brings more quasi prestige to the country than Joanna busting her face while fighting in some American private organization.

    [​IMG]Abdulrashid Sadulaev should get a gold, I can't see anyone in his division that will challenge him.
    [​IMG]Roman Vlasov, should get another gold for us too. I could see him throwing a lot of people.

    Elite athletes don't want to have anything to do with the cheat infested UFC/MMA. They can earn more in their chosen sport that has rigorous standards that insure a level playing field. The UFC/MMA are going to have to take 10 years to prove they aren't a disastrously corrupt fraud.

    MMA is a great concept it's too bad it was launched by the self serving Gracies who alienated the rest of the MA world with their obsessive manipulation of rules, drug use and cheating.

    the white guys in the vids were pretty awesome
     
  20. For real!

    Skill requirements for HW are at a low right now and potential for super stardom is at a high. Would be awesome to see some new HW's that have legit skills and size and previous international acclaim would make such a transition so exciting! Rogan would explode and I really wanna see that before he retires from commentating.
