UFC Lightweight Title

Any thoughts on how this should be decided?

How about a 4-man tourney?

They should make an 8-man tournament. This can be done in 2 PPVs, the first will begin with 8 and at the end there will be 4 fighters left. Then the next PPV, have the semi-finals and the finals on the same night. That way it is tougher on the fighters and will prove who is the best.

^ Yeah. I'd like to see an 8-man tournament consisting of:

Sean Sherk
Kenny Florian
Joe Stevenson
Jens Pulver
Spencer Fisher
Sam Stout
Yves Edwards
Melvin Guillard

Edit: Or even Hermes Franca

Franca over Melvin for me, and yes the 8 man is an awesome idea.

Florian, Sherk and Stevenson have all won recently so their opponents shouldnt be conteders for the title this seems obvious to get a title shot you have to win not lose which means Yves is out of the runing for the belt.

A tourney would be good but nsac will not let it happen. I would say sherk vs. homnick would be the best bet, but I guess homnick turned the fight down.

Q: He(Wanderlei Silva) said he's really looking forward to fight you in the finals.

A: (Mirko CroCop) Thats his problem.

I say a tournament too. Here is who I would like to see in it:

Sean Sherk
Kenny Florian
Jens Pulver
Joe Stevenson
Yves Edwards
Sam Stout
Spencer Fisher
Jon Fitch

And maybe BJ Penn, if he chooses too go as a lightweight and dominate or stay as a welterweight.
