Top Free Agents

14. David Loiseau
Record: 18-8
Key Wins: Evan Tanner, Tony Fryklund, Joe Doerksen,
Key Losses: Joey Villasenor, Mike Swick, Rich Franklin, Jeremy Horn
MMABlog Ranking: NR
There is no question that the former number one contender, Canadian David Loiseau wants back in the UFC. He is coming off of a win over Solomon Hutcherson and he hopes that earned him an offer, but he may need one more win. I expect that he will be given one more chance in the UFC sometime in 2009.

15. Brett Rogers
Record: 8-0
Key Wins: James Thompson, Jon Murphy
Key Losses: None
MMABlog Ranking: #24 Ranked Heavyweight
Rogers is a hard hitting prospect who was with the EliteXC. Rogers looked very impressive in his KO win over Jon Murphy that aired on CBS’ debut card. Rogers seemed to be unhappy that Kimbo Slice was getting the hype when he felt he deserved it, and he was probably right. He has been untested, but he hits hard. He has a place in a big time promotion. I do not know if the UFC would gamble with him, but that is the best place for him. Affliction may be a bad move because they would not have time to develop him like the UFC could. I would love to see a TUF featuring hevayweights like Rogers, Herman and even Kimbo, but they don’t need TUF to get offers.

17. Benji Radach
Record: 19-4
Key Wins: Murilo Rua, Ryan McGivern
Key Losses: Chris Leben, Sean Sherk, Matt Horwich
MMABlog Ranking:
Radach is coming off of an impressive KO win over Murilo Rua at EliteXC’s last event. He is sure to find a home somewhere. He wanted back in the UFC, but they hinted that he needed one more fight somewhere else. He could end up back in the UFC. He is hard hitting and talented, but I think he may head to Affliction or Strikeforce, but don’t count out the UFC just yet.
