WW Grand Prix

So I heard that some UFC will most likely participate in the Pride WW Grand Prix this year. I think they should have 8 from each organization. That would be the shit. I know a couple people I'd really like to see, Spencer Fischer, Sam Stout, Melvin Gulliard, Joe Stevenson, maybe Yves Edwards. I'd like to see Kenny Florian draw Takanori Gomi in the first rd. That would be fun to watch. What do you guys think?

P.S. I know usually this would be in the Pride section. But does it even matter anymore? Plus Im more interested in who you think should participate from UFC's side.

I'd like to see the top 8 from each organization, doubt it happens that way though. I like your list, and add Sherk and Penn.

Penn is fighting right around the time it begins is the only problem. He could maybe get a first rd buy. And Sherk is defending against Franca around then too. Plus if Sherk is still Champ he should be in the UFC/PRIDE superbowl thing at the end of the year. Depending on how Joe Lauzon did on the show I'd like to see him too. And maybe Corey Hill the 6'4 lightweight they got for TUF 5. You know the Japanese fans would love him. LOL

That's the only change to your list I'd make man.. I'd kill to see Edgar vs Griffin again, that was definitely the best fight of the year IMO.
