MMA Fantasy Draft: If every fighter in the world was suddenly declared a free agent, what order would they be selected in?

This is not a top ten pound-for-pound list; we’re going to pretend that through an act of god, every fighter in the world has been declared a free agent and that six different promotions have agreed to acquire the rights to each fighter through a universal draft. Alot of what ifs but I think it's an interesting excercise in who are the most important fighters in terms of maketability and talent in the current MMA landscape.

Awesome post, tron. I love to read up on MMA on fiveouncesofpain.com and to see the mock draft was a pleasure. Just imagine the possibilities...

I think its time we had an MMA category for the FPP's. You blood thirsty warmongers.

maybe Boxing should become Fighting Switch it to "blood sport", and we can include hGH testing in pro sports.

Or old Van Damme movie clips. I was going to comment earlier that my first pick in a fantasy draft would be Chong Li, but then I remembered that he almost killed Ogre from Revenge of the Nerds and I realized I just couldn't go there.

Cool article. Don't agree with most of the choices on there. At the end of the day, quality will prevail. The guy whos got BJ and A. Silva has the best team so far in my opinion.

I looked for "The Crusher" of Bugs Bunny cartoon fame, but alas, he was missing. That guy's good. Unless he fights rabbits.
