How about Jared Hamman?

He won the rematch with Suganuma, after the weird stoppage...

Seemed like ShoXC was bringing him along?

 I guess Strikeforce passed, because Jared is scheduled to fight Alex Gustaffson in UFC soon

I like Rodney Wallace despite his lack of size, but Hamman never really excited me.

John "Doo Doo" Brown 7-1 at HW and is moving down to LHW with next fight. He will be fighting Chris Price in Memphis on November 28th.

Doo Doo is a name to remember....

 shit my bad, working for "the man" again has kept me way too out of touch with the newsflow.

Brian Stann is absolute gimme fight for him and one that will make me some money.

 Yes. I had Ferreira in my expanded list, but his long layoff made me think twice. With two quick wins in a row, someone ought to take notice

 and he's actually looking good doing it.

The crazy thing is he's been fighting for over 10 years, is one of the best sub grapplers in the sport, and the biggest show he's ever fought on was 1 fight in the waning days of the IFL.  Obviously he's never taken his career super seriously but cmon...the guy could beat a good chunk of the top LHW's in the world.

I'm not convinced by Cacareco. The guys he fought in Jungle Fight had a combined 2-4 record. Let him fight someone with a pulse before you get too excited.

He didn't fight for a year and a half... so he takes two tune-up fights coming back, and plows through both opponents. It is what it is.

I had a whole thread "Attn: Strikeforce" a while back asking them to sign Cacareco ASAP! He would be awesome at 185 or 205.

Hey, Todd Duffee made his name with a TKO of Ausserio Silva in Jungle Fight. Still, that's not the point and you know it. The point is that he beat 2 no-hopers, it doesn't mean anything at all.

Also, Jan Blachowicz deserves mention as he has an armbar victory over M'Pumbu who made the OP's top 10.

wopyojah - smoogy,

 Thanks for the news about Medeiros. If they add even half of the fighters left in my list I'll be pleased with where the division is headed. They need to build to the point where they can have a decent LHW fight on just about any card.

Some recent signings at 205:

Alexander Gustaffson (8-0) to UFC
Jarred Hamman (10-1) to UFC
Antwain Britt (9-3) to Strikeforce
Rodney Wallace (9-0) to UFC
Muhammed Lawal (5-0) to Strikeforce
Yancy Medeiros (4-0) to Strikeforce

Considering UFC is a much larger company, I'd say Strikeforce is doing pretty good going toe-to-toe in the free agent marketplace.

What about Fabio Maldonado?

He can make 205, right?

Jordan Breen says that tatame is reporting that Cacareco is close to signing with the UFC. Good thread.
