Really happy to see the Middleweights class come over, Luke Rockhold, Robbie Lawler, Jacare Souza, Tim Kennedy, Lorenz Larkin, Keith Jardine , and Roger Gracie.

Welterweight Class I'm less enthused about, Marquardt, Santiago, and Misaki are all UFC caliber guys but not the most exciting or consistent guys. Jordan Mein and Tarec Saffiedine might make an impact, Woodley is going to be hated.

Lightweights really need to have some cut fights because I think only one or two of those guys can hang in the UFC (Masvidal and Melendez). It will be fun to see Noons, Couture, and Thompson even though I doubt those guys will be around a year from now.
They can't even fill up cards.

The biggest winner is Nate Marquardt, I'd love to see Condit/Marquardt after Condit handles his biz against Frenchy.

The big loser is Michael Bisping as he hopefully loses his gifted title shot to Luke Rockhold.
Yeah, Anderson already said he wanted to fight Rockhold too. So, they'll probably drag Rockhold to Brazil and let Anderson maul him.
