UFC’s Light Heavyweight Wishlist

Joe Silva has to be pleased with his light heavyweight wishlish, which is shrinking. It was a struggle to come up with a top ten. Seriously, there are probably on 5 or so established fighters on such a wishlist. There could be 5-10 more that the UFC would sign and 5-10 up and coming prospects. Oh, the number one guy on this list is strongly rumored to be already headed to the UFC, but I had to include him here. When you look at such a list you realize how deep this division really is.
