I'd like to see a MW one with people who have fought for UFC titles, Babalu, Travis Lutter (missed weight but won the last comeback), Thales Leites, Patrick Cote, Dave Terrell if he is still interested in fighting, Jeremy Horn,David Loiseau, Can't think of an 8th guy maybe Robbie Lawler or Kieth Jardine?

LHW would be good to, Sokkodjou, Houston Alexander, Ricco Rodriguez (if he could make weight) , Kieth Jardine, Babalu,

I'd like to see them go back to an allstars type series, bring in 32 guys that were cut/released/never given a chance in the UFC and see what happens.

WW - Sam Alvey, Rich Attonito, Josh Bryant, Chris Cope, Marcus Davis, Renee Forte, Gerard Harris, Damarques Johnson, Kris McCray, Ryan McGillivray, Sergio Moraes, Chuck O'Neil, Nick Osipczak, Tom Speer, Leonardo Teixeira, Jamie Yager

LW - Junie Browning, Dakota Cochrane, Efrain Escudero, Francisco Trinaldo, Rob Emerson, Jorge Gurgel, Corey Hill, James Krause, Waylon Lowe, Phillipe Nover, Cody McKenzie, Cole Miller, Joe Stevenson, Chris Tickle, Aaron Wilkinson, Andre Winner

With this seasons "plants" so to speak

WW
Sam Alvey, from this season who just got a bad draw.
Rich Attonito, he was cut because he couldn't make weight on a replacement fight.
Josh Bryant, who drew Kyle Noke to get a contract
Marcus Davis, still competitive on the indies
Gerard Harris, whose cut was absurd.
Sergio Morares, who will be the "Joe Lauzon" of the group cut to compete, he still needs more seasoning.

LW
Francisco Trinaldo, just had an epic battle with Tibeau, give him a chance to be a champion.
James Krause, got a bad draw to get in the house.
Jorge Gurgel, get a shot after Strikeforce folds.
Cole Miller, 1-3 in his last 4 a move back to LW and a shot at a title

Not a fan of TUF anymore. I may watch 1 episode a season...usually the first one.

This would spice it up. But really whats the point? These guys all suck. I mean Jardine? Hasn't he been beaten up enough? None of these guys mentioned are UFC quality for a reason and it has been proven. Going on a reality show and fighting eachother shouldn't earn them a place. And it is sort of a slap in the face for all these vets to have to go on a drama filled show to continue their profession.

It isn't like the old days where people went to other organizations by choice. Or the UFC talent pool wasn't stocked full of good fighters. The original comeback season as relevant because of the stage of the UFC. Now it is all just doormats who don't belong there.

UFC probably has 5x the number of fighters they used to not even counting new weight classes.

I'd go with a HW season. Toss in Tim Sylvia, Arlovski, Barnett, Fedor, Sean Mcorkle, Sergei Kharitonov, and I dunno...someone like Brett Rogers for shits and giggles. Would probably be a good one.

You think these guys would do TUF? Why would they waste their time when guys like Slyvia and AA can still take main event fights and make ok money doing so? But you think they would come on a show? And basically fight for free?

Why would Barnett be on a comeback season? He is basically a top 7 HW right now. He is still very good and soon to be in the UFC???

You think it is possible for the UFC to get Fedor on TUF when they couldn't sign him to a huge contract to main event PPVs?

Lets add an ounce of reality here.

You forgot to mention how is Fedor eligible for a "comeback" season? You have to be there in order to go back there.

In order to come back to the UFC you would have had to of been in the UFC at some point. Not sure you can grandfather Strikeforce fighters in.
