My guess is that UFC wants to stay more on the side of Boxing as opposed to Wrestling. Although both sports are very successful, i think UFC sees itself as "youth's answer" to making boxing more exciting. So they steal the youth audience away from WWE and turn it into a highly-profitable, more corporate-style, event series that has more flair than boxing.

Therefore i think anything that resembles WWE (multiple people in the ring, tag-teams, etc.) will be avoided.

Although sounding like an entertaining idea...

This would be one of the absolute worst things any reputable MMA organization can ever imagine considering. The reason why the Tag Team idea works in Pro Wrestling is because Pro Wrestling as a whole is worked. No one is in there without some sort of co-operative understanding of each other. All this takes is one unfortunate fall, an extended period of 2-on-1 and someone is going to get hurt badly.

If you thought the Boxing supremists had something to bitch about before, just one of these matches would prove all of their "barfighting/non-sport" touting soliloquies correct.

OK I think the tag team style match is out we pretty much all agree that it would not work but no one has said much about a one on one style match that has teams that when someone losses the next member of his team enters until one whole team is out.

The idea of having more then one-on-one is rediculous and we all know that.

The idea of having it relay style say teams of 3. Having a sucession of one-on-one fights were the winner stays out with a short rest (a little longer then the one between rounds) until one team is complete eliminated would be very cool, however I doubt it will happen.

They could take an idea from Judo, at some Judo tournaments I've been to they have had team fights. Teams of 5, but it's just 5 one-on-one fights and now that I think of it PRIDE has done that with the bushido team main events for quite some time now.

I like the IFL format, with teams that compete against one another and the team with the most victories moves on to the next round. It does kind of screw over some of the fighters but it is not a completely bad idea. It drives the fighters to fight harder for themselves as well as the rest of their team.

It would be interesting, yes, but it wouldn't be fair for a really good fighter to have a horrible fighter on his team. It would also be fairly chaotic and people could double team someone, which wouldn't be very fair either. So, I have to say no on this one.
