UFC fighters on 3 losses they'd rather not cut...

Dan Hardy is the name that really sticks out at the minute, a fighter on a 3-fight losing streak that would normally equate to him having to win a couple of fights on smaller cards. Why not send him over to Strikeforce as he still has big name value and Danas obviously is a big fan. Also theyve just named Kampmann v Howard, with both being on 2 fight losses why not send the loser over to boost Strikeforces thin ranks?

yea, if he loses to Couture, especially.
I must stress not just any ex-ufc names, has to be guys on 3-fight losing streaks from losing to top-guys.

I want to see Hardy vs Daley in StrikeForce! I think Dana is evil enough to make it happen,

Dan Hardy
Joe Stevenson
Brandon Vera
Micke Swick (with another loss)
Paulo Thiago (with another loss)
Takanori Gomi (with another loss)
Kurt Pellegrino (with another loss)
Andre Winner (with another loss)

Basically, every decent, skilled UFC fighter that no longer seems to be riding a string of great results, but it's not like he can't fight or anything.

Hardy for example: lost against GSP - the champ, Condit - former WEC WW champ and a TOP 6 UFC WW imo and Johnson, who is a more than a decent fighter also.
It's not like hardy has lost his skills, but he went against tough competition and lost (2 being decisions).

Also: Miranda just got cut by the UFC. He isn't bad. Inf act he's better than most SF MWs. He could be a great addition to SF.

I believe this is how ZUFFA will/should handle SF in the future: send the UFC fighters, who are on losing streaks to SF, until they get it all together, until they rediscover that *flame* and if they manage to put together some great fights/win streaks, have them back in the UFC.
If they can't so it in SF also = bye bye!

.



BELIEVE!

The WW division at SF could sure use some UFC cast outs, Hardy would be a good chose, Penn would be perfect because they are short of both challengers to take on Diaz for the title, and established fighters to test there prospects against, basically they have a division with a few interesting prospects but no one for them to make there names off.

As far as the title goes aside from pushing Tyron Woodley forward early for a title shot they have no one to face Diaz, as the division stands right now Daley is still arguably the best option for the next contender in an instant rematch, but thats not what I want to see. I would love to see Penn if not Hardy (as a distant second choice) come over and fight Diaz for the title, Daley take on Woodley in a No.1 contender match and a few names like Swick or Serra even who are flating around but not really going places in the UFC, Almeida would be another good option as would Dustin Hazelett

In fact if all else is in this sentence is Bull Sh1t and been a complete waste of even my worthless time because they stand by there words of no fighter exchange and only going for fighters out of contract, they should move in on Hazelett because he is still young out of contact and would fit in well with the prospects they have.

its not an exchange if UFC "release" the 3-fight losers, then SF pick them up.
These options just give guys like Diaz and Melendez more options and names to fight.

Kris McCray was also cut by the UFC.
He could be a good addition to the SF WW division. His fight against Hathaway was a good one.

I don't know about Hazelett. Last time he fought he was a LW. He is too weak at WW. Remember Daley?!

But yeah: some of the UFC's WW would fit perfectly in the SF WW division right now: Swick, McCray, Hardy, DeMarques, TJ Grant, Wilks...even Osipczack.
They would bring some fresh blood in the division, make it more competitive and who knows: maybe some of these guys will re-ignite the fire they once had inside of them.

That division is insanely weak.

When i first heard about the Strikeforce deal i was hoping the UFC would use Strikeforce in a pyramid-system style format, where underperforming fighters can get 'relegated' to Strikeforce and likewise fighters on winning form can get 'promoted' to the UFC........ i don't know how this would work for main events/under card though, haven't thought enough about it.
