I read your signature and it said something about wanting UFC to go to another country and hold an 8 Man Tournament.

1.) Would you rather see open weight, or a set weightclass

2.) If open, who would you have in it, and what would the matchups be

3.) Same question for set weightclass


I'm putting these guys in my 8 man openweight, some pretty good matchups could come out of it

Matt Hughes
Rich Franklin
Chuck Liddell
Tim Sylvia
Andrei Arlovski
Renato Babalu Sobral
Tito Ortiz
Georges St Pierre

The reason I say go to another country is because the Nevada Athletic Commision does not allow fighters to fight twice in one night and they must meet weight requirements, with that said they should go to Japan or Brazil and hold an open weight 8-man Tournament called.....................wait for it............................Ultimate Fighting Championship Grand Prix!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Same Fighters as your picks and the reasons why:
Matt Hughes-WW Champion
Rich Franklin-MW Champion
Chuck Liddell-LHW Champion
Tim Sylvia-HW Champion
Andrei Arlovski-HW #1 contender
Renato Sobral-Noboby left for Franklin to contend with
Tito Ortiz-LHW #1 contender
Georges St Pierre-WW #1 contender

They should do an open weight 8 man tourney like once a year and have a special belt or trophey for it. I'd say out those 8 fighters either Arlovski or maybe Matt Hughes to win. Just my opinion. What do you guys think?

Chuck Liddell or Matt Hughes would win. Liddell vs Hughes would be an awesome fight.

I wouldn't put in the Heavyweights for the reason that 250 pound fighters shouldn't fight guys 170 or 155, plain and simple.

I like the lighter weight fighters, if i could do a top 8 tourniment it would be.

1.Matt Hughes
2.GSP
3.BJ Penn
4.Rich Franklin
5.Sean Sherk
6.Anderson Silvia
7.Joe Stevenson
8.Mike Swick

Fighting order i'd like to see
1.v 8.
2. vs 4.
3. vs 5.
6. vs 7.

That would be my dream fight.

What is it that is going to be on your mind when you're on your death bed? Will it be the tedious years of 9 to 5, or the memory of some great acheivement. Maybe a moment you stood in glory to the applause of millions.

i like all ur guys picks in the open weight gp except gsp, i dont think he would have a chance of winning..id put brandon vera in there instead..and you guys have alot of confidence in hughes huh?/ i dont think he could beat anyone of those guys mentioned, actually i think he would get blown out of the octogon, and as for hughes vs chuck, cmon man, chuck would destroy hughes in the first round, not even a remotely close fight..and if u wanna see what would happen if tito and matt faught, go on dailymotion.com and there is a grappling match between matt and tito, and tito wins pretty easy...matts a great fighter but im only putting him in the tourney because it would be fun to see him fight some bigger guys, but he couldnt beat ne of them!

Chuck Liddell vs Tito Ortiz
Tim Sylvia vs Andrei Arlovski

Round 2: Semi Finals

Matt Hughes would be my pick in this 8 man tournament.

liddell would gas after one fight as would sylvia'
arlovski or hughes would be left
ya know..now that i think of it this sounds a lot like the old school ufc where people at this forum dogged the old school guys for fighting no one and having no chance in modern day ufc. but what about modern day fighters by old school rules? tito has the cardio but he is a *****. Maybe rich or forest, frank mir before the accident would have had a chance. but who knows hell cabbage could have beat em all just for staying on his feet>....I think in the end it would be hughes. he is a modern day royce gracie. he just finds a way to win time after time even if you dont like it its true.

If you don't like what I say then state your case and then shut up about it. Don't B*%&# like an old lady

guys matt hughes is 5'9 170, he couldnt beat any of those guys, ace would knock him out as would chuck, babalu is better than him...i dont even have to mention aa and sylvia..cmon the guy is real good, but it isnt old school ufc where the bigger guys are stiffs, these guys that we have in this tourney are the best of the best and they are all alot bigger than matt..i dont give matt a chance against any of them.
