Getting the green light from Dana White, however, will be a fight in and of itself.

I don't think even a win over Sakuraba would mean all that much anymore.

And Renzo was washed up five years ago.

I can't imagine Renzo beating anyone notable at WW or LW for that matter...with how some of them are possibly even FW!

Dan Hardy, Josh Koscheck, Duane Ludwig. All good options.

Other possibles:
Manuel Rodriguez, George Sullivan, Brandon Thatch, Shinsho Anzai.

All of those guys stop Renzo in my opinion. Thatch would probably kill him within the first minute. He's too old and has been out of competition for too long to be competitive.

I think it's their age, more so than their last name, that keeps them from competing.
