Vanderlai Silva would shake things up in the UFC LHW division, he is an awesome fighter. Also Frank Shamrock.
This would not be considered a return because he was never in the UFC to my knowledge but Fedor's brother Alexander is an awesome heavyweight. The HW division in the UFC needs some talent bad. A fight between Arlovski and Alexander Emelianenko would be interesting.

bringing in some of these fighters would also help bring in other talent as well..

I DONT SEE ROYCE BEATING ANY TOP FIGHTERS ANYMORE..HE CANT FOOL ANYONE WITH HIS JIU JITSU ANYMORE..AND EVRYONE ELSE HAS SIMPLY CAUGHT UP TO THE GRACIES..IN MY MIND HE IS NO LONGER A LEGEND ..BEACAUSE IF U SEND A FEW DECENT FIGHTERS OF TODAY BACK TO THOSE FIRST UFC'S..WE WOULDNT EVEN KNOW GRACIES NAME BECAUSE HE WOULDNT HAVE WON ANY OF THEM

Without Gracie and others like him the fighters of today would not be where they are. Eventually every fighter hits the down side, that should'nt negate everything they have done. IMO Gracie will always be a legend for what he did in the UFC.

Frank Shamrock, Wanderlei Silva, Josh Barnett, Matt Lindland, and to admit it...I would also like to see Kevin Randleman. He's so-so in PRIDE but in UFC was decent and reminds me of Tim Sylvia style of fighting and it would be cool to have him in the heavyweight division.

Definitely Don Frye. He only had one loss in UFC, even though he had a brief stay there, he picked up some impressive wins.

Royce brought Martial Arts out of the Dark Ages....

Before he won UFC we used to think Chuck Norris and Steven Segal were badasses. Now we know what works. Royce showed us that with skill and toughness a guy can beat someone 90lbs heavier. He brought honor to his family name and respectability to Martial Arts in general.

As a competitive fighter, he's way passed his prime, the rest of the world has caught up. Boxer's are usually done in the early 30's. I'm not sure but SAMBO seems just as lethal as Brazilian JUi Jitzu? To be a champion now, a fighter has to be way above average in every aspect of fighting....


funny: Royce dominated Ron Van Cliff, the 50 year old kung-fu legend when he was 26, just like he was dominated by Hughes.....

Yeah I forgot about him. I would love to see Don Frye and Mark Coleman enter UFC again. They are both gods to that octagon in UFC. Both very good for their ages as well.

Your right. They were both amazing fighters when they entered but when they grew older both of them became more lousy. That fight they both last had at UFC 45 was garbage like you said. I don't want them back either. Pedro can be a punching bag in PRIDE as Ricco can go get his butt wooped at WFA by Waterman.
