Andy Wang, a can. Are you kidding?
The Wangster will be champion someday. He was robbed on the show. He was clearly the most lethal fighter there.
If they had an open Grand Prix UFC tournament, he'd roll right through everyone: Rampage, Shogun, Liddell, GSP. Line 'em up, Wang will knock them down.
Okay. Okay. I was just kidding.
The rule change could allow inferior fighters, like Wang, to advance further in the competition than they should. They should keep the old system which would ensure that the weak get picked off early.
We will see competitive matchups against equally skilled fighters under this new system, but they may be fights between to low level skilled guys, The bad thing is that one of them will advance and he may face a guy who advanced in the same fashion as he did.
If this happens a few times, you could have a Wang or an Abaddi in the finals.
