Man that is a great list. I agree that a come-back season would be awesome. Also, lets give the winner/s a title shot.

I wish the UFC would put down the money to film this. Pay the fighters fair for the stint(20-30g's for the 2 months) with a nice contract to end. Could be the makings of a great season.

I think you overestimate how much these guys are making at this point. Most are clinging to being former UFC champs/contenders on small independent cards. All of them I am sure want to make one more run. I think a title fight dangling at the end of the season would motivate them enough.

I think it would be epic but I think the house could be interesting. I mean on season 4 you had the guys all act like professionals but here despite the fact they are professionals you have things like the Ricco's drug history, Arlovski and Sylvia's dislike of each other, Monson has some out there political views, Duffee is apparently an asshat, at MW you could have Cote and Lutter again both of which used the first season to revitalize there careers, I think even having a trio of Canadians could be interesting.
I would love to see that line up and could not in vision a better group.

Patrick Cote... I really wish he wudnt win. I do not want to see him vs AS. Maybe Denis Kang vs Anderson Silva. Though i think Silva wins each fight without a scratch.

With Cote they'd have to call it the come back again...or the come way back, since he was on the first comeback. i'm just messing with you of course

As far as Sylvia, unless he loses 50lbs I don't think he could make it on to a heavyweight show! Pretty sure his last fight he tipped the scale at 310+

Haha thats true.. Cote couldnt even win the original Comeback. Who did he lose to again??
I certainly dont think anyone should get 2 comeback shots.

I'd like to see comebacks the all-stars edition and use LW's and LHW's that washed out of the competition, you could even use former coaches like Pulver and Griffin and really stack the roster.

LW's

Jens Pulver
Joe Stevenson
Efrain Escudero
Phillipe Nover
Rob Emmerson
Tyson Griffin
Junie Browning
Alex Caceres

LHW's

Bobby Southworth
Sam Hoger
Seth Petruzelli
Keith Jardine
Vinny Magalhães
Eliot Marshall
James Hammortree
Jesse Taylor

You can not have a title fight for the winner, that was a huge mistake the first time. The prize is they get back into the UFC, a title shot for beating the mediocre guys in a show like this would be absurd.

Really. Serra won the belt and Lutter was winning the fight until in typical Lutter fashion he ran out of gas in the second round. The runner up from the first season also went on to earn title shot. Doesn't seem that absurd to me.

Agreed, these guys were cut for a reason. Just look at their records post UFC, that says it all about their true level.
