    This.

    The way the Strikeforce GP was set up was a sham too, although it was fun.

    The number 1 contender werdum fought the champ overeem in the first round.

    On a separate event, the next top contenders (Fedor and Bigfoot) fought, with the winner lined up to face
    the champ in the semi final (before overeem pulled out).

    Meanwhile the lower ranked guys (Barnett, Arlovski, Sergei, Rogers) would have had to win 2 fights to get a shot.

    Just like a normal division.

    In retrospect, I could probably frame the normal workings of any established division as an 8 man tournament.
