Middleweights:
Jason McDonald, Alessio Sakara, Ed Herman, Dan Miller, Eric Schafer and Tom Lawlor.

Welterweights:
Josh Neer, Matt Brown, Dan Hardy, James Wilks, Daniel Roberts and Mike Pyle.

Lightweights:
Spencer Fisher, Yves Edwards, Jeremy Stephens, Mac Danzig, Aaron Riley and Efrain Escudero.

If those names moved over to SF it would deepen and strengthen their divisions massively, and most of the guys listed rarely make it off the pre-lims yet most would be Main and Co-Main fighters in SF.
I definitely agree. It would be fascinating to see young prospects develop as well. I would just take Ed Herman off that list. He's an extremely underrated savage who looked spectacular in his last two bouts. Also maybe Pyle and Stephens too since I have them in my top 20 in their respective divisions. Theres about 60 guys in LW and WW... might as well take guys from the bottom 30 of each.
