UFC’s Lightweight Wishlist

This is a tricky wishlist. The lightweight division’s wishlist would have to be full of Japanese fighters, who have little intention of ever coming to the U.S. Perhaps some of the bigger names could fight on occasion for Strikeforce, but the UFC has little chance of touching many on this list. With goals of a show in Japan the UFC will need a few Japanese stars.
