Douglas Lima would be another fantastic addition to the UFC and I would love to see him fight guys like Kampmann and Condit. I think he has the potential to be a top 5 UFC and he is still pretty young, as are most of the people I have mentioned in this thread, some are very young. Bellator did find a few very nice prospects that have high ceilings. Also like I mentioned before most of their quality is in the lighter weights.

I was going to say Douglas Lima as well, in defense of Bellator's roster. There are several LWs that are easily UFC caliber as well. Plus I would argue that Bellator's FW division has just as much depth as the UFC's except for the top 3 guys... and Rob Emerson.

I'm not an Askren fan, but if Champions can be released at the blink of an eye, then it pretty much pisses on the status a champ has in Bellator.

Pretty sure Dana said UFC aren't going to sign him.

Thank God.

Why do people not want the best fighters in the UFC?

I like Askren, and I want to see where he really stands, I think he could be the best at WW

Honestly, don't see him breaking the top 10 in the UFC. Not only that but he is quite possibly the most boring fighter to ever pull on a pair of MMA gloves.

The start of his career he was boring, but in recent fights he's be a lot more exciting. He deserves a contract, to see where he's at, don't give him a title shot, or some scrubs, feed him to the wolves give him Rory or someone

He just 'squeeked' past Jay Heiron... Pretty sure Rory would actually kill him.

Hieron is a lot tougher than people give him, he was flashed KO'd, and that fight was awhile ago.
