    Karl Moore would have a good shot if he was more active.

    Iain Martell, if he was more active.

    Saul Rogers, maybe.

    Don't forget about Brett Johns. All he needs to do is win like 2 or 3 times in Titan and he'll be in the Ufc.

    Menga should be picked up, Johns will be signed if he wins Titan title.

    Steven Ray is the cage warriors lightweight champion, ufc have signed two lower ranked lightweights in under a week.

    Yea, I saw that the other day. Dude will be a serious force if he can get his striking up to par with his ground game, and working with that team is a good place to get it done. Hopefully we see him in the UFC sometime in 2015. It really annoys me when they sign all these other bums while guys like Menga are floating around out there rematching the likes of Steve McCombe in pointless fights.

    You answered your own question, mate. He's the champ of a promotion that has solid, tight contracts, it's not as easy as 'wanna sign with us?'

    He'll run down his contract then sign, the lower ranked guys aren't under tight contracts.

    Cage Warriors will let their Champions out of their Contracts if UFC wants to sign them. That's why Conor's in the UFC now.

    Would love to see Steven Ray in the UFC, he has definitely earned his spot. You see him post on Facebook about sponsors and that he struggles to support his family, train fulltime and work so to see him earn some good money through the UFC would be great as he is super talented and has beaten UFC vets.

    I'm surprised the UFC didn't give Brendan another go. We went to war with Mike Wilkinson down in Australia. I suppose the thinking was he is young and could do with a bit more experience though.

    Ahhh, actually didn't Pendrd get released to do TUF too?
    Fair enough, hopefully Dalby's coming soon!!



    I thought he beat Wilkinson and that decision cost me a nice payday in bets. Fuming!
    I guess they thought as you said, get some experience, he's a scrappy, decent fighter.

    I remember thinking the fight was super close. That might be one to go back to on Fight Pass.
