    Melvin Manhoef has been floating around the MMA world for sometime and had a hell of a 2012. If he was younger I would even suggest he took a stab at the Welterweight division. Either way I think he would make a very exciting to watch Yvves Edwards like gate keeper.

    I was thinking this. I'd love to see Melvin in the UFC and he's got a little win streak going right now.

    He would make for some interesting scraps...Paulo Fihlo as well if he can put together a few wins in a row and keep his mind right would make for an awesome comeback story.

    Daley shot himself in the foot by 1. The Koscheck Incident and more recently 2. Signing a contract to the MMA void known as Bellator, have fun fighting at Indian casinos vs. journeymen for the next 5 years, Paul... it is because he is really fun to watch.

    Manhoef is pure entertainment and excitement, why he isn't already in the UFC must be because Zuffa doesn't allow fighters to compete in MMA and Kickboxing while under their contract and Melvin is part of GLORY.

    For that reason we will never see him in the UFC but i cross my fingers anyway.

    There's so many great fighters at 145, 135, and 125 unsigned by Zuffa, they could make a reality TV show about it.

    But to answer you question: A bunch of Bellator guys, specifically at the top of Bellator with belts around their waists.

    Paul Daley was fired from Bellator after he was arrested and charged with battery for a bar brawl in England. He's facing up to 2 years in prison and is not allowed to enter the US until his battery charge is resolved. lol

    Bibiano Fernandes deserves to be in the UFC. I have always wanted to see Hayato Sakurai in the UFC as well, even tho his not real good.

    Im not 100 percent on this but I think Bibiano took the "more money eaiser competition route." He was briefly linked to a UFC fight and then like some fringe company like One fights or something offered him a 6 figure deal to fight nobodies and he was like "Peace, UFC."

    Sakuraba should come back to the UFC now that he has had his ear fixed, it looked great in his last fight.
