the real killer, what made the format we did unteanable, were the no-shows which were more than half the sign-ups.
I think the only way to make it work, after learning our lesson on the bracket system, is to have a points system for contendership where your wins:loss ratio dictates your score. But, if for some reason you guys choose a bracket system again (not a good choice, imo) here is a bracket document. Feel free to use it: http://idreamdigital.com/projects/ffl/Document1.txt
. If you go with brackets... you might want to consider not doing classes... so all each round of the tourny might be a dif weight class. That way you have more flexibility when people no-show.
for my part, i retired from the MMAF UFL with a perfect record, the Rickson Gracie of this motherfu*ker.
