    I agree... I believe LW's are very exciting. I believe it is a fairly weak division in the UFC and they need to bring in some high profile LW's to promote the division. Stevenson,Florian,Yves Edwards and Sherk but are not capable of headlining a PPV IMO.
    Would love to see some more Japanese talent brought over to UFC as some of these guys are real showmen and put on entertaining fights. Guys that come to mind are Genki,gomi and Kid.
    Obviously very expensive guys though


    Real eyes realize real lies

    Penn will beat Pulver imo, but i think it will be a good show either way. The LW are fun to watch

    Nice calls, JS. Shooto would be a prime ground for Dana to recruit some top-notch lightweights, and with they way he's been buying up others, maybe he'll pick up a few there.


    Stand or fall, but choose.

    The UFC has a pretty damn good LW division for one thats just started up guys, for starters they got Hermes Franca, Tyson Griffin, Mark Hommonick, Jens Pulver and Din Thomas are a few of the great guys in that division that come to mind.

    I'd toss Melvin in there as well. His body shot KO was amazing in his last fight.



    Although they all pale next to Scott Smith and Pete Sell. Seriously, that was the most inspirational and amazing fight I've seen since Forrest and Stefan #1.

    I agree that these guys can fight.. my point was just that they couldn't headline a PPV.. thats the only reason why I thought it would be a good idea to bring in some established bigger names.

    Although that would be the case for us, it would only be because we know those other LWs. You guys gotta remember, in the US a Melvin Guilliard has more marketability than a Takanori Gomi just because he was on TUF, so it would be easier for him to headline a PPV than Gomi, in the US at least.

    ^Fact. Sherk and Florian were amazing though, so I believe the LW division has what it takes to headline every now and again. We'll just have to see if Dana gives them the chance.

    Fair call...
    I was thinking they could run some big promo stuff showing these guys destroying people in other orgs... much like what they would have done with Wanderlei.. no worries as this wont happen anyway..

    I believe that Sherk at 155 can easily headline a PPV. He beat Florian with ease with basically one hand. Give him a few more fights to get used to the weight completley, and ill make the prediction that Sherk will become beyond dominant at 155.

    ^^ who are number 2 and 3 in the division u rekon?

    The LW division is sorta screwy ever since Gomi lost Aurelio, but then he won afterwards...but its still screwy. I think Gomi, Aurelio, Sakurai and Sherk are up in the top 3-4, depending on how you see it. Give Sherk a few more fights and i can almost gaurentee he'll be 1-2.

    Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic could be making his U.S. debut as early as February. Where is still the question.

    Adding more intrigue to what could become one the sport’s most influencing free agent acquisitions, Nevada State Athletic Commission Director Keith Kizer stated Thursday that he has been contacted by both the Ultimate Fighting Championship and PRIDE Fighting Championships recently, both stating their intention to host Croatian Filipovic (21-4-2) on their upcoming cards. UFC 67 is slated for Superbowl weekend Feb. 3. Japanese-based PRIDE promotes their second U.S. event on Feb. 24.

    Does Cro-Crop?

    Any way he goes, I just want to see him compete again soon.


     


  15. #141
    i guess we'll find out wtf hes doing in February, either UFC 67/68 or the PRIDE show in Vegas


     


  16. #142
    heres the apparent UFC 67 card so far:

    GSP vs Serra
    Silva vs Lutter
    Quinton Jackson vs Marvin Eastman
    Pete Sell vs Patrick Cote

    Well, now that Bj Penn has dropped back down to 155 to fight Jens Pulver the winner will be the number one competitor. Then again Jens just lost his first fight back. Since they are both the coachs on the new upcoming Ultimate Fighter show, the winner will go for the belt.

    I doubt BJ will drop all the way to LW to fight Pulver, it'll probly be at a catchweight. Also BJ has said numerous times he has no intention of going for the LW belt, and that he wants to take the WW belt again. Then again, BJ is weird and changes his mind alot.
