Come on, who doesn't love Shinya Aoki? The guy has beaten really good fighters in 2 different weight classes! Aoki is an exciting fighter with an excellent guard, great submissions, and cool pants. Well, he'd have to ditch the pants, but he could rock banana shorts. Aoki vs Karo, Aoki vs Hughes, Aoki vs Penn, Aoki vs Tavares......man, they should get this guy NOW!
I am a Frank Shamrock fanboy, and the MW needs contenders. I still think Frank has what it takes to be a force in the MW division. Call it delusion, call it nuthuggery, call it whatever. Frank Shamrock is still in good shape, he's incredibly flexible, he has a great chin, his stand-up is really, really good, he picks up things at an incredible pace, he has a really good ground game, he's charismatic, and he's exciting. I mean, yeah, he'll never come to the UFC, but a man can freakin' dream, can't he?
Antonio Rogerio Nogueira
I want my lil Nog back! But, thankfully, he's returning to Mixed Martial Arts. He'd be a great addition to the LHW division, and man, we need both the Nogueira brothers in the UFC. Rogerio has really good stand-up, a great ground game, and tremendous heart. He, like his brother, will never quit. Sure, Sokky brutally KO'ed him, but he's still a great fighter. I mean, lil Nog vs Machida, Shogun vs lil Nog 2, Rampage vs lil Nog, man...all of those fights would rule.
