Round 2:
Lawler - MacDonald = W - Lawler
Hendricks - Condit = W - Hendricks

Championship:
Hendricks vs. Lawler

Now how a tournament would realistically go in todays UFC world

Hendricks - Kampman = W - Hendricks
Condit - DHK = Controversial "robbery" decision victory for DHK, now fans are pissed and Condit is out of the title picture for the next year
Ellenberger-Rory = who cares their first fight was shit and the fans won't buy this
Lawler - Volker = Volker with the upset, fans cry more, Lawler ends his career without ever getting a crack at the belt

Hendricks - DHK = Hendricks wins a snoozer
Woodley (replacing an injured nobody cares) vs. Volker = Woodley misses weight, Dana gets pissed and claims in a post-presser rage Woodley isn't moving on to the finals. Nick Diaz throws his hat in to fight for the belt.

Hendricks gets injured and takes an extra 4 months...by now it's been a year plus long break and GSP decides to come back, faces Hendricks for the belt, wins, re-retires, and we get fans begging us to never do a tournament again.

Didn't say it was 'that' kind of a tournament

My memory? Wha?

Hendricks deserved a shot at the belt straight away. No reason for a tournament
