Am I the only one who wants Filho in the UFC??
 
They guy is great in Pride but can you imagine him in the UFC. He would take ground and pound to a new level. It seems he gets everyone in the mounted position, but under Pride rules the mount isnt nearly as dominant as it is in the octogon. He would use the cage and would be down right unbeatable if he was allowed to throw elbows. He would be like a Randy Couture in his prime with world class submissions. He would break the record for longest time holding the belt because there isnt one MW out there that could touch him in the cage. Anyone agree?

it almost wouldnt be fair

I'd like to see him in the UFC as well, the UFC needs more established fighters in the mix while some of the "new blood" learns the ropes.

yea the MW division is weak and it doesnt look like there is ne one in the UFC that can beat Silva. And Filho has the perfect style to do just that.

That would be sweet. He would be the best one to take on Silva for his title. I don't see anyone taking it from him. Franklin in my opinion has the best chance but he needs a new gameplan. Even then I don't see it happening. We could sit here and name all type of Pride fighters that we would want in the UFC. Its just a dream....

it seems like Dana wants to beef up his weak divsions. he started with the HW now I think it is time for the MW division. I mentioned Filho because the UFC rules and style benefit him much more than Pride.

I would love to see Filho in the UFC. I think the rules and set up benefit him tremendously. Him and Anderson would be a sick fight that I see Paulo taking.
