O the list is so long
Fedor - obviously no real reason needed
Josh Barnett - As long as he's not facing Mirko he might dominate the UFC HW divison. He has wins over both Couture and Nogueira
Aleksander Emelianenko - Don't know if it is possible since he has served jail time in Russia and I'm not sure if he could get working papers in the US
Rogerio Nogueira - Has perhaps the best ground game in the LHW divison and would benfit from the UFC rules and cage
Ricardo Arona - Another guy with an amazing ground game and he might benfit more than any other fighter by fighting in the UFC. the cage will help his world class takedowns.
Babalu Sobral - Shouldn't have gotten let go in the first place and he is right up there with Arona, Nogueira, and Shogun for the best ground games in the LW divison.
Sokdoujou - Perhaps the most explosive fighter a LHW his stand up is scary.
Frank Shamrock - It'll never happen but he should be in the UFC and he should be in the hall of fame. Has one of the best chances of anyone in the MW divison to beat Anderson Silva since he is very precious on his feet.
Matt Lindland - Could give anyone in the MW divison a run and is skilled enough to fight at LHW. The guy is just really good
Denis Kang - Amazing fighter who could also give anyone in the UFC MW divison a run for their money very skilled fighter
Robbie Lawler - A Brawler who despite what Dana White says would be the 3rd best MW in the UFC MW divison if he was signed tommorow.
Ninja Rua - While he isn't a great fighter anymore he is always a fun fight to watch and is jsut as good as Marquandt and Lutter
Hayato Sakurai - he just signed with Shoot Boxing and it's a shame because he would do really well in the WW divison since no one in the WW divison right now has any real stand up.
Shinya Aoki - Would fit perfectly in the WW divison with his ground game might be a bad match up for most of the top WW's though since they like to go to the ground.
Takanori Gomi - While I'm not a huge fan of Gomi he defiantly brings the fun and is top 5 at 160 now I put him at WW because I don't think he could make 170.
JZ Calvancanti - Outside of BJ Penn the most talented LW in the world can beat anyone on a given day. Crazy explosive. Better fighter than Sherk
Gilbert Melendez - super talented I think best fighter right now behind Calvancanti and Penn. I think he could take Gomi and is very good
Vitor Shaolin Riberio - Only guy in the LW divison better than Penn on the ground. Can finish fights unlike most of the UFC LW divison.
Andre Dida Amade - He might not be ready for the UFC just yet but his stand up is the best in the LW divison and it's not even close. No one can really stand with Dida and not get dropped. If he devlops a ground game and Takedown defense could be unstoppable.
Note - I didn't forget Filho I just don't really enjoy watching him fight at all.
Edit - Forgot Gomi.
