I think it would be funny if the UFC got Kimbo and then had him fight Lesnar. After Lesnar smashes him, shred his contract.

Kimbo(sadly), Noons, Silva, Feijao, Shields.

I would love to see Diaz straighten his act and return. He is entertaining and highly skilled.

I can't see Frank returning. More likely he gets set up for Ortiz in Affliction.

I would love to see Kimbo go to either UFC or Affliction simply to see him get killed. He almost lost to the biggest can in Xc, can you imagine fighting Fedor, Arlovski, Barnett, Nog, Mir, Werdum, Gonzaga, Herring, Lesnar.......!
That clown needs to be shut down.

I'm sick of all this Kimbo crap and his fans are the biggest idiots the sport has ever attracted. I would pay a ton of money just to see him get smashed. Specifically Lesnar.

People need to stop saying guys like Shamrock and Le. They are under Strikforce, and that company isn't going under. Strikeforce does have a cross promotional deal with Pro Elite, but they are not the same company.

Right now, I see money is the one doing the talking. Who is flipping money around to attract fighters? Affliction! They will go to Affliction.

Affliction is in trouble because they've been flipping money around! Unless they do something they are going to end up like EXC!!

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam

I'd like Zuffa to get some female fighters into the WEC, if the WEC/UFC merge some divisions. Not sure how the WEC can continue, otherwise, if the 205, 185, and 170's merge into the UFC. I'd doubt they would keep the WEC going if all thy had was the 135, 145, and 155 divisions. Throw in some females and you'd have at least 4 divisions in the WEC. Gina Carano on a WEC card would work in my opinion.

Other than that, alot of the EliteXC fighters are either in the EliteXC because they don't like the UFC (i.e. Shamrock) or they'll expect too much money and probably sign with Affliction.
