This guy must be new to mma...
Minotauro is the UFC HW champ. (Randy isnt / shouldnt be anymore)
CroCop had his problems (broken ribs vs Crap Kongo)
shogun has had only 1 fight
Silva just destroyed one of the top UFC LHW contenders. He was most likely next in line for a title shot.
Jackson is the LHW Champ, coming from Pride.
Silva is the MW Champ, fought in Pride.
Pride fights are just as good as the UFC fighters. There are many more fighters the UFC could of gotten that are from Pride, who would most likely dominated. Gomi, Fedor, Arona, Lindland, Barnett just to name a few.
