    (Volkov is 3-0 in the UFC, just sayin')

    I'm really curious why too, I imagine they couldn't/didn't want to do it for some reason. If not Bellator straight screwed them.

    Because in Lashley's case there is actual competition here and not cans to crush

    Kongo, who knows? You'd think he'd wanna avenge his losses to Mir and Roy, but you got me. He'll probably fight the winner of the tournament

    Remember they need replacement fighters for injuries.

    What about Wren, Fortune, Kharitonov, or even Jack Hager?

    I wonder if any of them are alternates in case of injury/PEDs test failures.

    After all, Cormier won the Strikeforce tournament as an alternate.

    I'll give you Kongo, but Lashley ain't beating any of the 8 they picked. I like Lashley, but his opponents have been hand picked, to say the least. Plus he's more into the Pro Wrestling thing to properly train for these guys.

    Kongo had the opportunity to join but then had flashbacks when he saw who else was participating:

    I'd definitely go with Sergei, maybe Fortune. I think Wren's style is too fan unfriendly to really be any kind of a draw. I like the guy, but he's probably not hanging with most of these fellas. I think Hager is at least 2-3 years away from any meaningful fights. I could be wrong based on his wrestling pedigree but he's simply unproven now.

    This heavyweight "tournament" is a joke. Call it an open weight tourny at least

    1) Lashley is a bum who doesn't fight legit competition

    2) Kongo is boring asf nowadays, it would hurt Bellator having him beating Fedor, Rampage etc by wrestlefuck

    3) Kharitonov it's making real cash at Russia and doesn't seem to care about Bellator

    Openweight is forbidden as far as i know in USA, that's why it's "HW tournament", just pretend like it's openweight..
