    So what’s the weight limit since not all of these guys are heavyweights? The normal 265?

    imo either roy or mitrione win this due to size or just being less shot than the others.

    Chael in theory could actually win the entire tournament. I don't see Rampage being much of a problem for him. I think Ryan Bader and Frank Mir are his biggest threats.

    I can't wait to see what Bader weighs in at. Doesn't have to cut weight for this one. That would be awesome if he comes in at like 240. It would only make his takedowns and punches that much more powerful too.
