    Mittrione would have 60lbs on him and has a hard Chin that rory cant break.

    Would be my most anticipated fight of the whole tournament. And the year.

    Anyone know how much Rory weighs? I guess he could hit the scales at 206 or above if he drank a lot of water before.

    In what scenario would Rory have even been considered?

    - He's a Welterweight (pretty obvious)
    - He has a title fight against Douglas Lima next year
    - There are other fighters at Heavyweight that deserve those reserve spots.
    - If a Welterweight wins your fucking Heavyweight tournament, that will make your whole division look bad.

    Not saying I don't want it to happen, but if anyone expects this, they're obviously new to MMA.

    Reserve spots should be given to Justin Wren (solid fighter), Kongo, Kharitonov, Lashley or Ayala.

    Sounds more like an open weight tournament. I like it.

    I thought Kongo and Sergei would be in by default.

    Maybe they didn't want to do a tournament? Because they're two of their biggest heavyweight names.

    Recently Kharitonov has been fighting at Russia, doesnt seem very interested in fighting at USA right now, he has a fight with Minakov in 2018 i think.

    Kongo probably isn't there because he is a boring fighter right now.

    He's on borrowed time after 189 anyway.
