What good is depth if the fighters can't give the champ a good fight, is my point . Lindland is the only one even close, Shamrock is not gonna come over and Horn is never gonna be a contender.

Feelings ... What are those?
Neg. rep me all you want, not leavin' your name, thats a b***h move.

Murilo dropped to MW for his fight on the Baroni vs Shamrock card. He's not a ripped MW, and it's not about being ripped, but I mean that it doesn't look like cutting to MW was a challenge at all. He could be a dominate MW. And Denis Kang!

The first guy who comes into my head is Matt Lindland, he'd be a good addition though I don't see him beating Silva.

If Ninja gets used to fighting at 185 he In my opinion could get to the top of the UFC since he has beaten some big time guys. He basically beat Rampage and got screwed by the decison. He's given the top LHW all good fights and i think when he gets comfortable at MW he'll be a top contender. Shamrock when he decideds to train well has the talent to be the best fighter in the MW divison it's his choice if he wants to though. I think the Renzo fight embrassed him so he will be motiveted for a while.
Kang
Lindland
and Horn are all also very good additions

Dana should think about the fans and not his own problem with Frank. I really think Machida should face Frank next.
I would really like to see Yoshihiro Akiyama aswell, He may be a bit one dimensional but I can see him becoming the Karo of the MW Division.

Franklin,Gouveia,Maia,Kharitonov,Hunt,Liddell,Pari syan,Hardy,Shlemenko,Machida,Gomi,Bustamante,Evans ,Edgar,Hathaway,Bonnar,Murray,S.Carter,Ludwig,Pett is,K.Gill,Sobral,Mousasi,D.Cruz,Arona,Nogueiras,Co te,Ole Laursen,Kawajiri,Sakuraba & K1 Lebanner!

Unfortantly it isn't that simple because Frank really doesn't believe in what the UFC is doing he feels that Dana is making MMA about him and about money and not about the fighters or aritist as Frank calls them. He makes a compelling cas acutally but I highly doubt he will ever fight in the UFC again because he hates Dana but he did say that if Pride was run sepratly from UFC and Dana wasn't in charge he would fight for Pride. His problem is mostly with Dana and the fact that Dana seems to want to be a star
