    UFC doesn't do tournaments.

    Coker does.

    Why are they bothering to call it a heavyweight tourney instead of openweight?

    those match up kinda sck.

    Mir Vs Fedor is great tho.
    why Roy Vs meathead renatch ?
    why put the 4 lhw against each other ?

    Fedor vs Mir
    Roy Vs Page

    Mo Vs Matt
    Bader Vs Sonnen

    that would have been my match up

    Well they will all likely be between 205 and 265. They might not all be natural heavyweights but that doesn't really matter.

    All the LHW fighters walk around over 205 any day so it makes sense to me and I like this idea of fighters not pussing out.

    Eh... No thanks. Big Fedor fan here but after the defeat to Mitrione of all people I just want him to retire and it's showing how thin Bellator's HW division is when you have 4 bloated fighters competing at a weight class they wouldn't originally be competing in.

    UFC never tried to make a heavyweight tournament.

    Also that's not exactly impressive considering half of those fighters aren't even heavyweights.

    Fedor has a winnable fight. Mir isn't a knockout machine and can be UD'd, tko'd.

    Whatever people might say regarding old fighters, and LHW/MWs competing in a HW tournament. Tournament formats get people excited and this is a brilliant business decision. People will tune in.

    And when boring fights and injuries are the result, you will understand why UFC doesn't do "tournaments"
