I honestly dont see anyone other not already in the UFC besides Shields that would really stand a snowballs chance in hell against the top six guys in this division. Even the guys that are on the ouside looking in when it comes to the title picture in the UFC are still pretty solid.
Totally agree. Pretty much EVERY top WW in the world is in the UFC, especially with Shields going up to MW. The only other guy outside of the UFC that I would like to see in the octagon is Zaromskis, but he probably wouldn't have much of a chance against any of the great wrestlers in the division.
