    Hunt vs Nelson (Official)
    Overeem vs Barnett
    Stipe Miocic vs Bigfoot Silva
    JDS vs Travis Brown.

    I think we got ourself's a tournament here.

    I'd like to see the winner of Hunt vs Nelson face the winner of Overeem vs Barnett
    And the winner of Stipe vs Bigfoot face the winner of JDS vs Brown

    Thoughts ?

    Jds/Browne makes sense and is sick, but I think Bigfoot's gonna fight Barnett which is also interesting. Stipe/Overeem is a weird matchup but I'm into it too.

    I prefer Stipe vs Bigfoot.

    I see Bigfoot as the HW gatekeeper even tho he is ranked pretty high. If you can't get past Bigfoot, you have zero chances against Cain, JDS, Werdum.

    Bigfoot is a big test for Stipe on paper and a rather good match up for him, so I'd like to see that fight.

    Stipe\Overeem is a very very good match-up, boxer vs kickboxer, but I'd leave that fight for a n.1 contender spot.

    Overeem vs Barnett is a Pride Fan's dream match-up. Two dirty clinching fighters ready to fuck some shit up, that fight needs to happen before one retires

    Insert Soa into that lineup, should any of them pull out via injury...
    Would be an easy win in the bag for any of the 8 fighters already mentioned :D

    They would be foolish to not put this on the Japan card.

    Well, if we ignore the rankings I see bigfoot losing to everyone except hunt/nelson more often than not. Say what you will, but I just believe he got lucky against both Browne and Overeem.

    Yea I agree, Browne tore his hamstring in the fight before getting ko'd, but the Overeem fight he knocked him out fair and square even tho I have Overeem in the Rematch.

    Bigfoot is just a good fighter to have a W next to in your record. It would be a good fight for Stipe is my opinion. If he wins, Stipe's confidence will go through the roof.
