If you could sign 10 new fighters

Lets say Dana White wants to beef up the UFC divisions and gives you an open purse to sign 10 new fighters (it has to be 2 in each divison) to a long term contract. The only catch is that they had to have fought in the UFC before and they cannot be signed with Pride. Who would you sign?


Here is my list:


HW- Semmy Schilt and Paul Buentello (he never should have been released)


LHW- Renato "Babalu" Sobral (if they release him) or Vernon "Tiger" White. They both deserve another chance.


MW- Matt Lindland and Jeremy Horn


WW- Carlos Newton and Renato Verissimo


LW- Caol Uno and Yves Edwards (he is not signed to Pride is he?)

Oh, yea, Wandy. I forgot about him. You can throw in Hendo in that category if you want.
