UFC Needs Lyoto!

I personally think that the UFC needs to try and aquire Lyoto Machidas contract and get him in the UFC LHW division. He is an awesome fighter and could easily contend for the title. I was wondering if anyone knew if they are trying to get him since they bought out the WFA because I dont think any company owns the rights to him.

I want to say that his was one of the contracts bought out in the WFA deal. I could be wrong.

The guy is filled with so much potential, and it's a shame he'll probably always be referred to as "That one guy who beat Rich Franklin". Lyoto's good on the ground, and really good standing. If anything, he'll probably go back to K-1. I'd love to see Lyoto vs Chuck, or Lyoto vs Babalu.
