    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    Spice up is fine, but are these contenders? Although I do want the top contenders to fight in the UFC (doesn't have to be the UFC, but all sports require a dominant promotion), I don't want to have every last quality fighter in the UFC. I think a dominant promotion is a necessary evil but a total, rigid monopoly would be problematic.

Let him take 2 or 3 titles, hell let him fight 2 guys at once. I don't give a ****, I just want to see the man knock people out.
    agreed. why penalize the best of the best? if someone in their weight class is a valid contender, let them get first shot before you go playing in another division, but if nobody can give you a run for your money, do whatever you want.

    It would be more competitive (from the athlete's point of view) to see cross-promotions. My understanding is there are contractual obligations which limit who can fight who. Perhaps someone who has more knowledge of the combat sports than I could provide better insight on this thought.

    Wasn't the Anderson Silva vs. Dan Henderson match supposed to unify the PRIDE and UFC middleweight belts? It was in boxing (i.e. three belts held by undisputed champions) but seems to be more the exception than the rule for UFC.

    Yeah cross-promotions would solve a lot of problems and really put a lot of competition out there; it's a shame the UFC doesn't want any of it.
