Good they've signed all the ones I wanted. Hopefully Barnett, Cavalcante and Masvidal will come over but other then that I'm not bothered.

There's a few guys on the "not guaranteed" list that absolutely deserve a job in the UFC.

along with johns unsigned list he should grab estevan payan who won on the first fight of the last strikeforce card by tko

Ugh.

Too many guys missing from the ShoFight cards.

Quinn Mulhern, Yuri Villefort....why let good prospects get nabbed by Bellator when you are signing guys like Kurt Holobaugh

They'll sign them i'm pretty sure, UFC needs all the fighters it can get considering all the shows they put on, especially lighter weight class ones.

I sort of expected the UFC to take a while to grab Barnett but I am very shocked that have not looked into the following:
Carlos Inocente
OSP
Feijao
Adlan Amagov
Yancy Medeiros
Chris Sprang
Kazuo Misaki
Jorge Santiago (he has looked good since going to WW)
Jorge Masvidal
Estevan Payan

I hope they sign Barnett. Good addition to the UFC. (Assuming he is smart enough to stop taking PEDs)

YES YES YES Finally we get to see Tim Kennedy come over and get the ass whooping he deserves!

His unrelenting and boring bashing and calling out of every single UFC middleweight for the last 2 years is sure to earn him a good few beatings and i will be front row with a huge smile on my face! Just becasue you're a war vet doesn't mean you can be a friggin asshole and get away with it! RANT OVER!

Doesn't the UFC already havde Brian Stann? Why sign the cheap knock off?

Joking aside its a decent list that I am just surprised OSP, Masdival and Fejao didn't make but Calvacante likely will get signed once he is cleared to fight.
