    Why is the UFC pissing off so much of their heavyweight talent? Couture, Crocop and Arlovski left, and now Sylvia. Barnett and Emelianenko are free agents, but I don't see them signing with the UFC.

    What's going on? Most of the top 10 seem to be more interested in fighting outside the UFC.

    Maybe they should just sign Vin Diesel to fight Brock Lesnar and rename the organization UCF – Ultimate Celebrity Fighting.

    barnett signed with a japanese organization. emelianko is still in talks, but is likely to sign with elitexc. even with fedor signs with ufc, ufc already said that they will not allow randy-fedor to happen. cro cop said that he would come back to ufc later in the year, but i think he was just saying that so that his fans didn't think he was a pussy for leaving the ufc so abruptly. sooner or later, i think ufc will drop other good pride people like wanderlei and the other dude that lost to forrest.

    the other dude who lost to forrest is shogun and in 07 was ranked number 1 205'er in the world u should learn his name i hope u are joking.

    post a link where the ufc has said they wouldnt let fedor vs randy happen. dana recently stated he would love to have fedor vs randy in the ufc why wouldnt he? get ur facts straight

    arlovski is staying in the UFC, thats where he wants to be and dana is finally paying attention to him. silvia leaving is big because he is a two time former champ, he did look good in his last fight although he lost, and his size is hard to beat. i agree that crocop wont return to the UFC but i'll bet he goes to EliteXC especially if Fedor signs there.
