Any thoughts on how this should be decided?


How about a 4-man tourney?

Sherk
KenFlo
Stevenson
Pulver
Penn?
Stout/Yves?

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

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.

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.

now that would be sweet if ufc would have an 8-man tour..All the choices sound great, and would make for some great matches.

Best way to decide who deserves to carry the Lightweight Title, they need to seriously do the 8-man tournament thing. With all the guys I listed, we would be in for one hell of a tournament.

Sean Sherk
vs.
Yves Edwards

Hermes Franca
vs.
Melvin Guillard

Spencer Fisher
vs.
Kenny Florian

Jens Pulver
vs.
Joe Stevenson

Now tell me that wouldn't be awesome.

It would be awsome guys, but the ufc is not allowed to have tourneys anymore. Unless they spaced it out over like 3 ppv's, which now that I think about it is very doable.

The lightweights don't get enough respect from the general public. It'll be hard to get this ball rolling.
To bad kenflo turned down the sherk fight. I think Sherk win the belt if we were to have a tournament. He would own Edwards. Did you see what joe stevenson did to him? Holy crap!
