On one side of the bracket we now have an AJ Mckee vs Darrion Caldwell semifinal. This is a great fight. On the other side, we have Patricio Freire fighting Carvalho in one quarterfinal, and Sanchez vs Weichel in another. Currently, AJ Mckee is the clear #1 contender. Yet because of this goofy tournament, we have to wait to see him get a title shot. More importantly, assuming Freire beats Carvalho, Freire will have to fight the winner of Sanchez/Weichel. This is pretty dumb considering Freire already beat both of those guys in 2018. tldr: tournaments are dumb. The champion should fight the #1 contender.
