    he broke his leg very similarly to Anderson Silva in his last fight. He may never come to UFC.. I hope he recovers though

    He's unproven in MMA. He just doesn't stack up to guy like CM Punk.

    Several reasons.
    1. He is signed to another org
    2. He wants to box and kick box and the UFC wont allow that.
    3. He hasn't really beaten anyone to get into the UFC and he isnt that big of a name to people who only watch MMA.

    He's a well known blackzilian. The ufc has lost all credibility in recent times. Why not.sign him on the basis he's prob the best striker in mma. They signed wonder boy

    Wonderboy stopped competing in kickboxing to take mma seriously as a career. Spong hasn't.

    I'm waiting for the UFC to sign Kron Gracie. I think that dude will be a champion one day.

    I think the UFC has had their fill of Gracies.

    Because he's 2-0 in MMA and looked very pedestrian, pretty obvious.

    If he actually pursues MMA career seriously, I'm all for it, of course.

    no one good in mma,in kickboxing-ilunga,bonjaski,aerts,sefo,manhoef,calavari,corbett,samedov,etc. he is best lhw in kickboxing right now. main reason is he still wants to kick box and mma(ufc doesnt allow that). i see him quiting kickboxing at some point and coming to ufc

    Wonderboy went 5-0 before the UFC picked him up. Spong is 2-0 but is still primarily a kickboxer. If he can wrestle, I'm sure he can make it to the UFC, but it's never going to happen unless he commits to the switch.

    But I'd love to see it happen.
