Next big names

Brandon Vera comes to mind.... if he drops down to 205, I think he would be unstoppable.... About sellin seats...I could care less if Paris Hilton, and a bunch of non-fans come to see him. All true MMA fans will continue to support the UFC, and that is the only reason that the UFC is even still in existence. I would also like to see Spencer Fisher challenge for the new 155lb belt.

for all we know some of the next big fighters may not have even fought thier first fight. there are several on this site who are training and want to make it and they might just be the next big thing in fact I hope it is one of them, me I doubt I iwll be it I do not have the drive I just like competition and I do not hve the time to devote to train to that level of competition, but I am still looking to compete on smaller scales more for myself then anything, but then again life is strange I may take to it all better then I expect to. so who knows but I wish those on this site who are training the best of luck, just don't forget us here.

yeah i say brandon vera will be the next big thing in the LHW AND HW! great striker and grappler.
Sean sherk who is having a title shot at 155 is the next big thin. (well he kind of is already) great wrestler. takedowns and gnp.
i think josh koshcheck has potential. he is an amazing wrestler.
Diego sanchez is also a great grappler with a lot of potential
and some of the guys on the ultimate fighter have potential.

You make a really good point about the lightweight division. It makes it really hard for alot of guys who could fight in that weightclass (like me) to make a UFC cut because we have to fight the best in the business at a 20 lb disadvantage. If the UFC goes lightweight I think that we'll definitely start to see some knew big names.

Yeah, I don't know how much fun it would be to debut with Don v Arlovski. It might be fun to watch, but I don't think I'd want to fight Silvia.

I'd be all up for competing as a lightweight, I don't know who I'd compete against (probably Sean Sherk), but it'd be alot of fun. Some of the lightweight guys seem to be all about speed and cardio, so I think that I might be one of the rarer strength fighters.
