I don't, personally, like everybody you listed but I would love for them to join the UFC.

The biggest omission: Jordan Mein

Made his professional debut BEFORE his 18th birthday, was robbed against Woodley, fights so often (a throwback to the combat warriors of yesteryear), and already has some good names under his belt (Riggs, Santos, Burkman, Zaromskis) at just 23 years of age.

People don't realize this young man's potential -- in 10 years the two best Welterweights in the world will be Rory MacDonald and Jordan Mein, NOT Erick Silva.

Mein is a beast with a lot of experience for his age, and some good wins over solid veterans. I'm a big fan of his.

Funny that you say that in ten years he and Rory will be at the top, since Jordan's debut was a loss to Rory.

I mostly want to see Mousasi come over and get his career back on track. He needs to dedicate himself 100% and fight consistently against good competition, because he has all the potential in the world and I would hate to see him waste it.

Not so much funny, but rather, DESTINY.

These two prodigies are on a collision course for MMA supremacy.

The first 6 fighters or so are in the mix, I would like to see Marquardt campaign at MW. Hopefully Daniel Cormier can fight Roy Nelson. That roster just got deeper, we may see a show every month next year.

Melendez and Cormier for sure

Rockhold too, Marquardt is a WW now and providing he can keep making the weight and he keeps making noise then why the hell not

Mousasi cant wrestle so he's cooked in the UFC and would be cut almost immediatley

Jacare would be a useful addition, Barnett is never going to fight in the UFC again!

He's in Bellator, and he just got brutally knocked out by Andrey Koreshkov.

I'm a fan, but I think he needs to drop to lightweight.

I wanna' see Maia Vs Marquadt II at 170lbs.

Feel bad for Semtex and Josh Barnett. Only have themselves to blame but I like both as fighters.

I like Paul Daley too, as a fighter, of course. Can't figure out why, because I hate him so much outside of the cage. But that left hook is nasty.
