He would be a good signing due to his "HYPE" but Bisping would beat him and i think Sonnen , Silva and Okami would so i dont know how far he would get.

Bisping Fan extraordinaire

Velasquez will be back

Hector is the real deal. You win 20+ fights in a row and that says something. The dude is a walking highlight reel fighting in Bellator, and could make a statement in the UFC, anyone that thinks less is kidding themselves.

"Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man."

Hector is a Top 10 MW.. perhas top 5. Like others have stated, there is a vast difference in the competition in Bellator vs. that of the UFC.

That being said, the MW division is the weak link, and AS has run through everyone. Bringing in Lombard would be fun, but I think he has a lot of flaws to his game that the Top 5 would exploit.

As to whether the UFC has interest in him, Dana claims to have never seen a Bellator event. My guess then is "no."

Was talking in the Bellator section and I think he has a couple more fights left on his contract with Bellator then he can get out of it.

The guy is also getting to that age where explosiveness diminishes, although that said, he has tightened up his striking a lot over the years, he used to be more of a wild man but his become more technical for sure.

I say put Falcao in with him and then bring him to the UFC if he wins that fight. I think he would shake up a lot of these UFC contenders pretty well and maybe only lose to the top few.
