The fights we should see are:
Fedor vs Silva
Andrei Arlovski vs Josh Barnett (if he can get licensed)
The Reem vs Fabricio Werdum
Brett Rogers vs Todd Duffee (if they sign him)/Daniel Cormier/Lavar Johnson/Shane Del Rosario
Should be entertaining, gotta love a tournament, but it proves how slim the SF division is considering Brett Rogers and potentially Todd Duffee would be regarded Top 8. I'd love to see a worldwide 8 man HW tournament, would be so, so awesome:
Cain Velasquez vs Junior Dos Santos
Fedor Emelianenko vs Fabricio Werdum
Brock Lesnar vs Frank Mir
Shane Carwin vs Alistair Overeem
Now THAT is a mother****er of a tournament. Imagine the PPV numbers that'd draw, those are some epic match-ups. Just need Strikeforce, DREAM and M-1 to fold and it'll be possible.
As for this tournament, we can only hope that the match-ups work out as expected, and we finally get to see The Reem vs Fedor. I think that's a fight every MMA fan wants to see, and seemingly everyone but M-1 want to see. Would be the ultimate Test for Alistair and one that would propel him into the Top 3 legitimately. Just hope we have no complications and this gets booked, until we see the tournament in full swing I'm not holding my breath though. I'd still be surprised if Fedor and Barnett end up fighting in a tournament. Fedor will probably destroy Silva, then waste another year re-negotiating his contract; and if Barnett actually gets licensed we'll just have to hope he doesn't piss hot after the fight.
