Jake Shields would be wrapped up first, and would show the most interest due to the well rounded Welterweight Division the UFC has.

Lawler and Cung Le I think would be quick to follow as well, both have always talked about going there (or back in Robbie's case).

Big Foot I see heading to Affliction over the UFC, but he is friends with Big Nog and Nog is very high on the UFC so I could see him make his way in.

Hell, Feijao will probably land in the UFC as soon as his contract expires, hes talented and just look at the guys in his corner, Robbie Lawler would probably returned, UFC is in the need of heavy's so Antonio, Ninja is a no-brainer. Shields I agree. Diaz, Noons and Yves probably wont happpen, nor do I care to see it happen. I want to se Cung Le badly in the UFC even though he is Strikeforce. Kimbo would go to the UFC, and Dana would feed him his top guys like he did Lesnar(despite Lesnar nearly stopping Mir if it werent for a lame ref time out, and Lesnar easily beating Heath Herring) hell, he'd probably feed him to Lesnar. Which I want to happen badly, so all the youtube losers who think Kimbo is actually a dangerous striker get to see him get...well I cant say exposed because James Thompson already did that, smashed is the better word.


Who is Big Foot?

Diaz isn't going back to the UFC, he is too small to match up against the top guys at 170 and 155 would be a very hard cut for him, 160 is hard enough. If EliteXC folds Diaz will continue to fight in DREAM and the occasional Affliction or other upstart promotions shows.

I think Shields, Lawler, Noons, Le and Villasenor would all be locks to get scooped up by Dana quickly.

Kimbo would want too much money and in turn would headline smaller promotions for big purses.

Ninja and Bigfoot could go anywhere, The UFC would be stupid if they didn't pursue Bigfoot, because he is a top HW and the UFC is very thin at that division. Ninja would also add some depth to the 185 div.

Gina...oh yeah, Dana doesn't like women fighting.

Silly me. I'll just get pregnant and stand in the kitchen barefoot.
