I agree with all your picks. The Kenflo JZ fight would be pretty badass. But this tourney would be pretty pointless because BJ is head and shoulders above the rest. Its like having a WW Grand Prix with GSP, or HW GP with Fedor. The out come is etched in stone.

Probably Gomi.
Im not sure how BJ's cardio would do but he is still my pick to win primarily because he is even on the right side of the brackets, the top half have a harder fight to the finals IMO,

Dida wouldn't beat Florian, as soon as the fight hit the ground he'd get worked.

Yea I think so to. His striking is really good and his grappling is real good 2. IMO he's a lot like JZ Calvancanti with better stand up and wrestling. Although his ground game is a little worse.

Fedor>ALL I'm not sure if Florian would shoot in quick enough to survive a fight with Dida.

Dida has crazy power and Florian considers himself a good striker.

I agree. And if Florian tried to stand I'm not seeing him getting to far with it. Amade would make short work out of him.

Kenny rarely takes damage in his fights though, he's very elusive. I wouldn't be surprised if he clinched up with Dida and took him down, then subbed him---seeing as the ground game remains Andre's biggest weakness, and ultimately Kenny's biggest strength.

Kenny also doesn't fight many guys who do damage on the feet. Dida is a more dangerous striker then anyone Kenny's faced.
