Fighters crossing over

I made my list. Add/drop and discuss.

Heavyweights
  • Daniel Cormier
  • Josh Barnett
  • Antonio Silva
  • Fabricio Werdum
  • Shane Del Rosario
  • Chad Griggs

Light Heavyweights
  • Mike Kyle
  • Rafael Cavalcante
  • Ovince St. Preux
  • Gegard Mousasi
  • Muhammed Lawal
  • Roger Gracie


Middleweights
  • Luke Rockhold
  • Ronaldo Souza
  • Tim Kennedy

Welterweights
  • Tyron Woodley
Lightweights
  • Josh Thomson
  • Gilbert Melendez
  • Billy Evangelista
  • Jorge Masvidal

Makes me wonder how much guy's will they eventually bring over once they fold the org.

Yes very nice. Looking at all these potential new fighters makes me drool a little.

I'm not sure if they'll immediately bring over everyone, but I hope so!!

I would add Jordan Mein and drop OSP. Also Kawajiri and Aoki are obvious additions if you count them as SF fighters.

I count them as Dream fighters, i may be wrong though.

Mein has to come over, as does OSP, he won't be ready for the elite guys for a while but in the future him, Jones, Gustaffson, Kingsbury, and Davis are gonna have some good fights

Yeah, that's not only pretty much perfect, but it's also likely in all cases.

The ONLY wild card on your list might very well be Mousassi, he may head back to Japan but I hope not.

Figuratively if they closed SF today.
HW. BigFoot, DelRosario, Barnett,Werdum, Cormier and likely Griggs.
LHW, I agree with the list above although there is no way if Daley is not coming back to Zuffa that Mike Kyle ever does considering he takes the cake for classless acts in the cage.
MW Jacare, Rockhold and Kennedy are locks but I think
WW Mein, Cyborg, Woodely, Tarec Saffiedine,
LW Melendez, Noons, Masdival, Maximo Blanco, Pat Healy, Billy Evangelista, Justin Wilcox, JZ Calvacante and likely Josh Thompson would all be brought over.

Is Del Rosario ever going t fight again? I know that accident he was in was supposed to have been fairly severe, I havent heard anything about him since that either. Anyone know anything about his current situation? The guy was an awesome prospect with above average stand up and a great ground game for a heavyweight that was supposed to be a kickboxer first.

He was to face Daniel Cormier at Strikeforce: Overeem vs. Werdum, but was involved in a car accident in which a drunk woman hit his car from the back. As a result from the accident, he suffered a herniated disc which kept him from training as well as forcing him to withdraw from the bout. He has since fully healed and expects to fight sometime in either this fall or winter.
That's good.

I'd also say that Jordan Mein should be on that list too. Wouldn't be surprised to see them pick up Ryan Couture too just for the crack.
