    As you may have seen Bellator have recently announced an open weight HW tournament starring Frank Mir, Fedor, Rampage, Chael Sonnen, King Mo, Roy Nelson Ryan Bader and Matt Mitrione.

    Imagine if the UFC put on an open weight Tournament with all the champs! It would be insane.

    Can you imagine Stipe vs Mcgregor

    Mighty Mouse vs Cyborg

    TJ vs GSP

    It would be so great

    Make it happen WME!

    Let's make an actual OW tourney:
    1. Stipe
    2. Werdum
    3. Ngannou
    4. Reem
    5. Jones
    6. DC
    7. JDS
    8. Cain

    Alternates: Rumble, Gus

    Assuming no injuries (How I'd make it):
    Round 1:
    Cain/ Reem: Cain wins
    Stipe/ Jones: Stipe wins
    DC/ Werdum: DC wins
    Ngannou/ JDS: JDS wins

    Round 2:
    Cain/ Stipe: GLORIOUS FIGHT. I have Stipe winning, but it'll be tough.
    DC/ JDS: DC wins via forcing JDS back to the cage

    Round 3:
    Stipe/ DC: I have Stipe winning, but DC can win too. This would be a GOAT-level fight.

    Good job the Rousey hype train is dead or this thread would be full of people saying she would win it.

    UFC can barely make the champs defend the title.

    I actually love openweight tournaments, they are epic if the tourney consists of good fighters. They would never have some of the matchups you suggested TS, those fighters would never do it. But if they did like MW, LHW and HW in UFC that would be fun

    You think Werdum beats DC, and Jones beat Stipe? I don't see Werdum taking DC down and in a striking match DC can KO him. We just saw Marcin Tybura landing good kicks on Werdum. I imagine a bomb from a 250lb DC would KO him like Bigfoot got KOed. As for Jones, he had a lot of trouble with Gus. Stipe is basically a bigger, stronger Gus with a shit-ton more power and pressure.

    Cain/ Jones would be lit and more of a tie since Cain lacks power and is a smaller HW at 6'1 240lbs. As for Ngannou/ Werdum: I don't see Werdum taking Ngannou down and holding him there, so he'll probably be KOed on the feet.

    Jones/ Werdum would another crazy fight. I don't see Jones wanting to take down Werdum, but then again I can see Jones wanting to take Werdum down to prove a point. On the feet it'd be 50/50. Both are great kickboxers without a lot of power, but both can have power when they need to (Werdum with his knees, and Jones with his elbows and kicks). I pick Werdum since he's tall (some people who've met him in person say he's more like 6'5) and he's fought HWs his entire career. Werdum would be a super Gus with deadly knees and a god-tier ground game.
