    Obviously guys like Shamrock, Tito, Gracie, and Rampage still pull decent numbers.

    Now not all the former UFC fighters would be willing to fight, but what fighters, if they did, would still pull big #s for a non UFC promotion:

    Liddell
    Pierre
    Hughes
    ???

    Wand & Chael seem like two that would be game and could pull in big numbers especially if it is vs each other since that fight was already hyped up for years.

    I think Randy Couture could pull some viewers.

    Especially if they could line it up at about the same time as an Expendables 4 release.

    I bet Don Frye could pull a decent # for a one and done type thing.

    That would be for Matt Hughes since nobody really cares about his fights expect hardcore fans

    There are too many to list.

    Hughes , Serra , Sean Sherk , Sonnen , Silva , Forrest Griffin , Cung Le , Leben who was just signed the list goes on. Plus there are some from the generation before them. Royce ect.

    I'd love to see any of these fighters fight again. Some more than others. Put a Hughes vs Sherk main event on with a decent co-main and it does well above the average Bellator ratings. There is no shortages of these type of fights.
