Strikeforce to UFC: A list who should brought over

Below is a list of the Strikeforce current roster. I have excluded the female division.

Who do you think should be absorbed by the Ufc and who should look for work elsewhere?

Obviously the HW's, LHW's need some fresh blood, the MW's could still use a boost.

The WW's and LW's are the most stacked in both organizations but there are several fighters who could add some new match-ups to the middle of the division.

An idea to bring some of these lesser known fighters from Strikeforce with a decent record to be brought into the mainstream would be take 16 WW's and 16 LW's and make them have a "win and your-in" and then run a TUF-Strikeforce with 8 WW's and 8 LW's. Winner's get a new 6 fight contract.

Obviously the Marquardt's, Woodley's, Melendez'ssss, and such should just come over right away.
