Strikeforce to UFC: A list who should brought over
 
Below is a list of the Strikeforce current roster. I have excluded the female division.

Who do you think should be absorbed by the Ufc and who should look for work elsewhere?

Obviously the HW's, LHW's need some fresh blood, the MW's could still use a boost.

The WW's and LW's are the most stacked in both organizations but there are several fighters who could add some new match-ups to the middle of the division.

An idea to bring some of these lesser known fighters from Strikeforce with a decent record to be brought into the mainstream would be take 16 WW's and 16 LW's and make them have a "win and your-in" and then run a TUF-Strikeforce with 8 WW's and 8 LW's. Winner's get a new 6 fight contract.

Obviously the Marquardt's, Woodley's, Melendez'ssss, and such should just come over right away.

Barnett, DC, Feijao, Mousasi, Rockhold, Jacare, Larkin, Kennedy, Gracie, Marquardt, Saffiedine, Woodley, Melendez, Healy, Thomson, Masvidal, Noons, Couture and Green. Would love to see Jardine back but he needs to retire.

But, most of all get Nate back in the UFC, St. Pierre/Condit vs. Nate is probably the fight I wanna see most after Machida/Hendo.

I would like to see Jordan Mein have an opportunity as well, but he would fall into a TUF situation,

GSP will avoid a fight with Nate

That explains it. I thought he'd be afraid of him or sth silly like that.

So many fights I want to see. They should do a strikeforce invasion card.

I've wanted Rockhold v Weidman for ages.

Nate has said that he would fight GSP.

Weidman would strangle him.

This is a good list.

I'd take Couture and Green off though.
