It's a shame that the UFC and Pride are having problems again. Liddell versus Silva would have been awesome. Even a guy like CroCop could drop to LHW. Well if I get my wish the UFC will go ahead and pay Rampage what he wants. I would love to see that rematch after Liddell v Ortiz II.
It was very disappointing to hear the problems popped back up, all the talk that Pride was gonna start sending some guys over for a few fights to the UFC had me very excited. It sucks to see that Silva/Liddell as well as a few others aren't looking good to happen. There are a ton of fights that I think could put some nice money into both promotions pockets. Another fight that comes to mind would be Hendo and Franklin. Of course I'd pay just to see Fedor beat down on any of the UFC's heavyweights.
I just wish the UFC would try to get their hands on some better LHW guys. I mean really after Chuck and maybe Tito (though he hasn't really impressed me since he's come back) they are very thin. Really though, I could say that about any of their divisions outside of WW. Maybe with the crazy buyrates the UFC has been getting they may go out and spend some money and start putting good talent in the other divisions.
