First off, let us establish a couple of fighters from each weight class that, I believe, the majority of people would want in the UFC:

Heavyweight: Fedor Emelianenko, Alistair Overeem

Light Heavyweight: Gegard Mousasi, Muhammed Lawal, Rafael Cavalcante

Middleweight: Hector Lombard, Ronaldo “Jacaré” Souza, Robbie Lawler

Welterweight: Nick Diaz, Ben Askren

Lightweight: Eddie Alvarez, Gilbert Melendez, Shinya Aoki

Featherweight: Joe Warren, Bibiano Fernandes

Bantamweight: Masakazu Imanari, Masakatsu Ueda

Now I know I didn’t name off every single fighter that everyone wants inside the UFC, but my goal is to bring together a list, a fighter from each weight class, that I would like to see fight in the UFC that most of you I’m sure have heard of (or maybe haven’t) but possibly haven’t considered how they would compete in the 8 sided cage (or maybe you have).
