Which fighter outside of the UFC do you most want to see in the UFC?

Which guy do you want to see in the UFC the most?

In no specific order,here are some of the best fighters and some of my favorite fighters that are not in the UFC.

Gegard Mousasi - Possibly the Greatest fighter to never fight in the UFC,he has dominated for years all over the world. He is a natural Light Heavyweight who has also fought at Middle and Heavy. This guy is a straight up beast.

Daniel Cormier - A Top 10 Heavyweight and Strikeforce Champion. He is a great wrestler who could challenge JDS or Jon Jones for their titles.

Pat Curran - He is the Bellator Featherweight Champion. He looked amazing in his last couple of fights,I can't wait until the UFC signs him. He could be the Featherweight champion in the UFC.

Michael Chandler - The Bellator Lightweight Champion,not a lot of hype behind him for some reason. I hope he ends up in the UFC very soon.

Eddie Alvarez - One of the best Lightweight fighters for a long time,he still has not fought in the UFC. He will be in the UFC in a matter of weeks,he will be a force in that division for sure.

Nate Marquardt - The Strikeforce Welterweight Champ,this guy was a top 10 Middleweight in the UFC for years. He got cut,Dropped to Welterweight and went over to Strikeforce took the Belt and will soon be back in the UFC.

Mamed Khalidov - A great fighter who has not gotten much mainstream praise,I don't know why he hasn't fought in one of the bigger organizations yet but he definitely should soon. He dominates almost every opponent he faces,I hope he gets signed with the UFC soon.

Ben Askren - The Bellator Welterweight Champion,many call his style of fighting boring(because it is) but it is very effective. He is an extremely good wrestler and I want to see him compete in the UFC.

Josh Barnett - One of the greatest Heavyweights of all time. This guy has fought everybody,I hope he comes back to the UFC and finishes his amazing career.

Gilbert Melendez - I am not a fan of this man,but he is one of the best Lightweights in the world. He is the Strikeforce Lightweight champion,and should be heading to the UFC very soon.

Shinya Aoki - A Ground Specialist with a Shiny Glass Jaw,he would give the UFC fans some great fights with plenty of beautiful submissions and devastating knock outs(He would be getting knocked out). What more do you want. I hope he ends up with the UFC.

Brock Lesnar - The Former Heavyweight Champ,a great wrestler with freakish size and terrible stomach issues. He would still be winning in the UFC and I hope he comes back before he gets too old.

Fedor Emelianenko - One of the greatest of all time,this guy has beaten so many top guys but never in the UFC. If he stays retired and doesn't ever fight in the UFC,it will be a tragedy. I hope he changes his mind.

Anthony Johnson - He was a very good Welterweight but couldn't make weight anymore so he went up to Middleweight and still couldn't make weight so he was cut. He is now at Light Heavyweight and is 4-0 since being cut,he no longer has weight issues. He looks very good and should be back in the UFC very soon. I can't wait.

Todd Duffee - He is a monster with a ton of power,he is a free agent and I hope the UFC takes another chance on him.

Tyrone Spong - A world class Kickboxer who seems to have made a smooth transition into MMA so far,this man has a ton of experience and top notch striking. I know the UFC will be signing him as soon as they can. He will be a great addition to the Light Heavyweight Division.

Ronaldo Souza - He is a great grappler with some of the best Jiu Jitsu in the game,in his last fight he showed some nice striking which makes him an even bigger threat to all of the Middleweights.

Luke Rockhold - The Strikeforce Middleweight Champ,Blah Blah Blah. I hope to see him in the UFC soon,he will be.

Bibiano Fernandes - One of the best Bantamweight and Featherweight fighters in the world. He recently signed with ONEFC instead of the UFC,so I hope when his contract is up that he finally comes and fights in the UFC.

Marlon Sandro - When he fought in Sengoku in Japan,he would destroy guys. He has gone 5-2 since signing with Bellator,I still think he is a top guy and I hope to see him in the UFC.

Daniel Straus - A Bellator veteran who keeps on winning,I would like to see fight the best in the world in the UFC.

Alexander Shlemenko - A Russian fighter who I have been a fan of for a while now,this dude is awesome. He better be fighting in the UFC by the end of 2013.

Lorenz Larkin - A Strikeforce guy who has a lot of fans,I know hes a good striker. I don't have much more to say about him,I know he is a top Middleweight and probably will be fighting in the UFC soon.

Tyron Woodley - He is a good wrestler and would bring some more depth the UFC's Welterweight Division.

Tim Kennedy - A Solid Middleweight,I know people want to see Kennedy vs Stann. lol I'm sure he will be in the UFC.
