well Aoki still has his Shooto title

Kang I heard is in talks with BoDog

Randlemen says he wants to fight in UFC but I doubt they recognize that

Aleks just had a fight with M-1, hell either stay there or BoDog

As for the rest, I really hope they find a good place ASAP cause thats some wasted talent right there.

Alistair Overeem - Heard he is going to K1-Yes
Kazushi Sakuraba - Signed with K1?-No idea.
Takanori Gomi - Signing with K1?-More than likely
Gilbert Melendez-Strikeforce at the Playboy mansion
Shinya Aoki-Shooto as mentioned.
Denis Kang-Talks with Bodog, Elite XC, maybe even UFC, still has a deal with Spirit MC in Korea to fight there once a year.
Ricardo Arona-No Idea, but maybe Sokky KO'ed him into retirement?
Antonio Rogerio Nogueira-Pan Am Games Boxing, won Bronze
Kevin Randleman-Making a bid for UFC, doubtful. Is working some pro wrestling in Japan last I heard.
Josh Barnett-Free Agent, talking to everyone I am sure, would love to come to UFC or possibly Bodog and get that match with Fedor maybe?
Aleksander Emelianenko-Fought on a boat in Russia for M-1.
Mark Hunt-MIA

Thanks for any info anyone may have
Your Welcome. Does anyone know what is up with Hayato "Mach" Sakurai?? I really wanna see him in the WW division at UFC.

Alistair Overeem - K-1(rumors)
Kazushi Sakuraba - Signed with K1
Takanori Gomi - K1
Gilbert Melendez-Strikeforce
Shinya Aoki-Shooto maybe DEEP as well?
Denis Kang-Talks with Bodog, Elite XC, maybe even UFC, still has a deal with Spirit MC in Korea to fight there once a year.
Ricardo Arona-Nothing rumored for him, i highly doubt he will retire at his age, and he is still a great fighter, despite being on a bad streak.
Antonio Rogerio Nogueira- MMA wise, hes in some team competition in Brazil, not signed or rumored with any1
Kevin Randleman- Talking UFC, since he had contract with Pride. Still suspended for using roids.
Josh Barnett-Free Agent
Aleksander Emelianenko- M-1, probably will go Bodog or maybe follow his brother somewhere.. it helps so much to have Fedor as a brother..
Mark Hunt- For some reasons, he was refused by the NSAC at pride 32(supposed to fight butterbean).. i dont have much infos about that, but if that's the case, then i guess K-1 is his only option. He could cut t 265 easily anyways


And Sakurai is signed with UFC at WW.

jb88ci has a little shameless behaviour in the past
what happened with Dana's promise that pride would continue to run in Japan and offer an alternative entertainment to the UFC?
