    its the perfect time, you have crocop coming back, big nog,arlovski,overeem,barnett,hunt,you could put lesnar in the mix and even post trt vitor and hendo, and maybe convince fedor to come back. the winner gets a title shot.
    im sure you sherdogers will find it more interesting then another mitrione or schaub fights.
    and dont tell me the ufc is all about the best of our time, they signed punk.

    Have they ever had a tournement since Zuffa took over? It would be cool to see, but I doubt UFC wants to go down that avenue, esp since that was somethnig Bellator was well known for.

    Injuries. Injured guys ruin a tournament.

    Half of them would be injured before their second fight.

    Injuries would gut it. Ufc sucks at sticking to a time table, dont see them coordinating that many matches

    Yeah I did. But it's still wwf to me

    I get ufc is a entertainment sport, but I don't get how they seem to trash everyone else for doing what they will do

    On topic: that tourney sounds cool

    Sounds fun! What's the lineup look like if we are talking about legends? That is a subjective term that many may argue about? How many fighters? Are there injury backups or byes for injuries?

    Cormier got his chance to shine via an injury spot in a HW tourney. I say: bring it on! It would be supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.

    i say a tournament of 8 fighters, first round crocop vs aa, lesnar vs mir 3, barnett vs overeem, hendo vs big nog and vitor as sub. ill pay for that.. the winner vs cain or werdum, if one of those legends wins the title it will be the biggest story ever.(besides lesnar he is not really a legend)

    Carwin? The UFC could probably work out a way to market Lesnar as a "legend" (tho he ain't) but Carwin would be a hard sell.

    they need to just give in a do a tournament. it pisses me off that they won't do it. dana's excuse is bullshit. injuries ruin every card anyway; just do a tournament with 8 fighters and a good chunk of reserve bouts. and if the ACs wont sanction more than one round in a night, just do one round per event. we just wanna see brackets. I know it will do big business. imagine seeing brackets released. every thread on sherdog would be about the tournament. it wouldn't be too big like march madness, but if they did a tournament once a year like PRIDE did, the UFC would gain some fans.

    Because we aren't in the future and we don't have the necessary devices to help Big Nog getting through a tournament.

    Seriously, the ACs won't sanction it on US soil. In Japan it would be possible, but I highly doubt the UFC wants to put 4-8 HWs with name value on a Japan card, when they can fill up a slot in a watered down PPV.
