    If not for contract restrictions, which 5 fighters cut or released in the last few years would you bring back?

    1. Phil Davis - fairly young, top 5-ish fighter in a division desperate for contenders
    2. Rory MacDonald - young, yet already proven fighter and one of the best not to hold a belt
    3. Shawn Jordan - fairly young HW who has beaten Black Beast, again in a thin division
    4. Jake Shields - the oldest of my picks, but just an awesome fighter the WW division could use
    5. Sarah Kaufman - not old, prematurely released and likely still a top 10 BW

    Maybe 2 WWs is too much since the division is already stacked, lol. What are your picks?

    I should punch you in the head after the horn for wanting Daley back.

    They should bring Niklas Bäckström back. Don't know why he was cut after he was robbed against Noad Lahat.

    He's a fun fighter to watch.

    I guess I should say "not retained" as in they didn't offer them enough to keep them.

    He's got an 80 inch reach and hits like a 797 rock truck. I hope Rizin isn't his last outting.

    Angie will post a picture of herself putting JJ's head on a stake before the fight, like when she sacrificed Tecia.
