    Much like the WEC absorption, a lot of them will make their way to the UFC. Most of the lower guys that just were brought in as late replacements/to lose basically won't be brought over most likely.

    There are like 3 contenders at best, and only Melendez has a realistic shot at being UFC champ. I don't think it's worth watering down the UFC talent pool. It leads to more shitty events with longer gaps in between fights we want to see like Jones versus Silva for example.

    P.S. some fighters have already been signed... Caros Fodor is fighting Sam Stout in UFC 157, for example.
