Open Weight Tournament

If UFC held a Openweight tournament over the course of a couple ppvs would would you put in it.

Only Guys Currently in UFC

8 Man

Tim Sylvia
Andrei Arlovski

I'll make brackets later. Got to go.

Chuck Liddel

Andrei Arlovski
Rich Franklin

Cheik Kongo
Tito Ortiz

Matt Hughes
Reneto Babalu

Tim Sylvia

Round 2
Those would be just the first round matches , the brackets could be moved around abit. I would've done 170's vs Heavyweights more often for matches but that highly unlikely in todays UFC.

Heres how a 8 Man tourny for me would loook.

Tito Ortiz vs Brandon Vera

Chuck Liddell vs Cheick Kongo

Rich Franklin vs BJ Penn

Georges St Pierre vs Anderson Silva

I tried to keep it 220lbers and under, Sylvia vs Pennn is ridiculous

Round 1
Chuck/Forrest
Sylvia/Vera
Tito/Franklin
Arlovski/Babalu

Round 2
Chuck
/Arlovski
Tito/Sylvia

Finals
Chuck/Tito

well, it'd kinda get anticlimactic towards the end... since the NSAC doesn't allow fighters to fight more than once in a single event!!!
