The only way to determine who the best was would be to have a tourney with the top 8 hw in the world which would be badass but sadly never would happen so no this doesn't determine it.

I think the winner of the semi-finals alone would establish that if the winners participate.

I would say so, there are more credible fighters in that tournament than Cain or JDS have ever faced.

Well, I wouldn't say that Cain and JDS each did hand Werdum and Big Nog the first quick 1st round KOs to each in their careers..with ease. Cain beating JDS, or visa versa gives them a lot of credibility.

Still a potential Werdum V Overeem V Fedor winner, and then beating someone from the right bracket winner puts that HW above all else in MMA.

The thing about this tournament is Overeem V Fedor, hasn't happened for years, should have happened - will likely be the semi-final match-up. It's a fight Overeem wants, Fedor and group hasn't let it happen for years, but they will let it happen this tournament? I'll believe it when I see it.

Yes.

The only other two people who could even be considered are Cain and JDS, but I'd definitely put the winner of this tourny higher than either of them.

Other than Barnett...who in this tourney is going to challenge anyone with wrestling? Thats one thing that won't really be determined. If everyone is just going to stand, then Overeem has the obvious advantage. The potential Fedor v. Overeem fight will be the most interesting....hope it happens.
