Go figure ... lol.
Imagine Dos Santos fighting UFC champ Velasquez... without opportunity to grab the belt... just for fun And in order to get it, he would need to beat Velasquez twice. Sounds like a complete BS. As MMA fan I don't care that much about the title holders in DREAM/SF/WAMMA comparing to actual fights. I just want to see Werdum, Overeem and Fedor facing each other, but fighters should be disappointed. I mean, Werdum already beat Fedor and if he beats Overeem, he still won't be the champion... and even if he somehow defeats Fedor AGAIN. Cool isn't it? Then what does it say about the titles? I guess the probability of this is extremely low, so it's not even a consideration of SF management.

P.S.
Shogun was a huge underdog in PRIDE GP 2005, but he completed his work admirably.

Favorite fighters:
1. Badr Hari
2. Remy Bonjasky
3. Mauricio Rua
4. Anderson Silva
5. Alistair Overeem

I kind of expect the winner to get a title shot anyway, does seem kind of silly tho, especially if the winner does get a title shot and its a rematch of a fight we already had in the tournament.

Yeah, you must beat Fedor, Overeem, Fedor again or Silva again, then Barnett/Kharitonov/Arlovski/Rogers. Nice way to earn the title shot you have to beat the champion (+ the best HW in MMA history twice) to earn the right to face him again. Lol

Favorite fighters:
1. Badr Hari
2. Remy Bonjasky

The finals needs to be for the belt regardless of who is in it. My money is on Allistair to win the whole thing but shit, this is still ridiculous.

What it boils down too is the winner of this (if not reem) will be no1 contender. Makes sense in a way.

If Werdum somehow finds a way to win this tournament, he's arguably the best heavyweight in MMA (and definitely above Overeem in all rankings), not just some #1 contender for SF's belt.

But for any other fighter it would make sense in a way, especially for the guys on the right side.

another issue with this is that it screws up the brackets, they made sense from a view with the title been on the line, from Werdum been the number one contender getting the first title shot, then Fedor vs Silva for next No.1 contender, it all made sense while the other 4 battled it out for a title shot once the current top 4 had finished battling it out to see who had the belt.

But without the title in play the brackets are unbalanced with having your top 4 on one side and your other 4 contenders on the other. No Question in my mind that the Brackets could of been done better in this case without the title in there.

Overeem will need an entourage to carry his belts like some pro boxers.

That was initial intention, and much better idea. Now it's a complete disrespect to Werdum.

Coker didn't make this decision.

The commissions wouldn't sanction 5 round fights in the tournament.
