Can I present a LUN to a 7420 SAN from another external SAN?

We currently have a 7420 system with a couple volumes presented to our servers over NFS. We want to destroy/rec-create these volumes as FC LUNS, but we need to first copy off all of its contents. Unfortunately we do not have enough free space on the 7420 to move/copy the currently used data to, and so I'm looking for alternative methods og copying/moving this data other then using the NFS which is a slow connection. Our 7420 has four 8/Gb FC connections; could I present a LUN(s) from another external SAN (different vendor) to the 7420 WWN's and then copy/move the data off to this new volume from the external SAN therefore given us a much bigger pipe then what we would get from the NFS?
