3. Randy because he was the first two division champ and is a legend of the sport and everyone loves him and he is basically the face of the sport... and is still going... hopefully.

4. And finally Chuck because he was the face of the mainstream transformation of the UFC... Oh and coz he beat the snot out of a lot of people for a long time.

They are all classics and would represent both the project and the sport perfectly, and they all have very distinct faces that would look pretty cool.
Wow that was my list that popped straight into my head.

That's a cool idea OP. There are a ton of options, but I think the one that makes the most sense is:

"Gracie, Couture, Liddell, Hughes."

The only thing I'd consider changing is removing Gracie or Hughes and putting Dana's face in there.

I'd go with the champs, personally.

Cain, GSP, Anderson, and Shogun. We'll put LW aside, as I'm not convinced Frankie will get passed Gray, nor am I convinced Gray will get passed whoever comes next. I think we're in for a few 'one time' champions in that division.

Tito wont work. His head will look kinda odd the same size as the other 3. We wont recognize him. And to make it the right scale would use up the whole god damn mountain, right? So... no Tito. Too complicated.

I say:

Tank Abbot - cause he was the first dude that actually had a fan base

Kimo - Because he was a ponytail away from beating the shit outta fecking Royce, who I always thought was a bit of a twat.

Wes Simms - He foot stomped Frank Mir in the face. Legend.

Big Nog - Because his big ogre face would look just awesome on the side of a mountain. ( Lil Nog will do )
