    You basically just listed every top non-UFC fighter and the majority of them are fairly unrealistic to be signed.

    Thread is called" fighters i would like to see in ufc" and who wouldnt like to see top fighters outside ufc get a chanse to fight top 10 ufc fighters.
    Why would i like to see some local guys with no notable wins in ufc?
    Im not saying prospects shouldnt be signed but these are all top level fighters
    Of course i want them in ufc

    To make it interesting, I'll go with people that (I believe) don't have WSOF, M-1, One FC, Invicta FC, and Bellator contracts.

    Heavyweight: Tough. I guess Cody East (legal trouble notwithstanding) and Chris Barnett (if he cuts down with the weight).

    Light Heavyweight: Mikhail Mokhnatkin, Attila Vegh, Iain Martell, Maxim Grishin

    Middleweight: Honestly can't think of anyone not signed with M-1 or Bellator.

    Welterweight: Kamarudeen Usman, Nicolas Dalby, Magomed Mustafaev, Lyman Good

    Lightweight: Gregor Gillespie (after a few more fights), Mansour Barnaoui, Musa Khamanaev

    Featherweight: Tom Duquesnoy, Levan Makashvili, Alexandre Bezerra

    Bantamweight: Jimmie Rivera, Luke Sanders, Soo-Chul Kim, Julio Arce, Irshaad Sayed

    Flyweight: Yuki Motoya, Pedro Nobre (he's better than the Alcantara fight), Damacio Page, Pantoja, Nildo Nascimento, Soldado, Daico

    WBW: Pannie Kianzad, Agnieszka Niedzwiedz, Valentina Shevchenko

    WSW: Ericka Almeida, Livia Renata Souza

    Hoping he lands on the upcoming Newark card. Kinda ridiculous that he hasn't been signed yet.

    I remember thinking he was going to get signed after beating Papazian and Cullum in KOTC. They had just signed Pace, so I figured Rivera was next. 5 years and almost 10 wins later, it still hasn't happened. That's just crazy.

    He fought on TUF after that and lost to Bermudez but acquitted himself well enough to warrant another shot imo. They signed Tateki Matsuda for fuck's sake.
