    Already they have a very competitive HW, LHW and WW roster compared to the UFC, should they make the LHW tournament?

    Bader
    McGeary

    Davis
    Yagshimuradov (from ACB)

    Nemkov
    Vassell

    Narkun (from KSW)
    Machida

    alternate 1: Aung La Nsang (from ONE) vs Prochazka (from Rizin)
    alternate 2: Sonnen vs King Mo
    (superfight: Wanderlei vs Fedor)

    There is no way ONE would send Aung La N Sang to Bellator. He's becoming a big star for them, too risky.
    Bellator's LHW division is definitely deep enough though, especially if Mousasi and some other big MWs move up.

    So they have a competitive roster but here's a tournament that includes several fighters from completely different promotions.

    Those fighters probably have no interest in fighting for Bellator if they're already in One, ACB or KSW.

    They might have a better rooster than the UFC but their roster is shit.

    Assuming DC stays at HW and Jones moves up once he returns... Bellator LHW division > UFC LHW division.

    Let him prove himself at MW first. He already stated he wants to fight Fedor so thats pretty badass. But maybe a bit too much yet. Moose is a proven LHW fighter and had some great succes at HW too (ie Hunt)

    I got a bit of heat for mentioning a LHW tournament before... But after my initial suggestions, here is a revised list I think would make for an explosive LHW tournament that would get a LOT of attention.

    Ryan Bader
    Gegard Mousasi
    Lyoto Machida
    King Mo
    Phil Davis
    Chael Sonnen

    And while these guys fight their next round of fights, have some fights for entry:

    Linton Vassell vs Jordan Young
    Liam McGeary vs Tyree Fortune

    I don't think Aung will take part on this tournament for being a ONE Champ.
