Top 16 LHW fighters outside UFC according to Fight Matrix:

1. Tito Ortiz
2. Renato Sabral
3. Vitor Belfort (Actually he's now ranke din MW, but he's been a LHW for most of his life)
4. Antonio Rogerio Nogueria
5. Vladimir Matyushenko
6. Kevin Randleman
7. Mike Whitehead
8. Rafael Cavalcante/Ricardo Arona (Inactive)

9. Bobby Southworth
10. Mamed Khalidov
11. Alex Schoenauer
12. Sanae Kikuta
13. Poai Suganuma
14. Robert Jocz
15. Marcelo Tigre
16. Jae Young Kim

All except for one of the fighters (Cavalcante) in the top 8 are already with Affliction. 9-16 shouldn't be too hard to aquire, but they could just do an 8 man tournament.

I think it would be a good idea. It would make for a good series of cards.

Dude, has that avatar grown on you or something!? You can change it!

Anyways, I actually like the idea, but I would go with the 8-man tourney because the 9-16 are kind of questionable as far as top talent goes. But yeah I would for sure enjoy that.

I'm guessing he isn't ranked because he hasn't fought for so long......

I agree, but instead of a 16-man it should be an 8-man, and I'm sure Vitor Belfort would come back up to LHW if there was a tournament to crown the LHW champ in Affliction.

Yea, and 8 man tourny would do well. I guess Calvacante can be replaced by Arona since I just read on Sherdog that Arona is comming back by the end of the year.

Tito Ortiz vs. Vitor Belfort
Ricardo Arona vs. Babalu Sobral
Kevin Randleman vs. Mike Whitehead
Lil Nog vs. Vladimir Matyushenko

Thats how I would arrange it.

How would you guy's arrange it?

Thats why I added the option to replace him with Arona.

Yup thats me. And before you make judgments let me tell you first that I am an All-America Collegiate Wrestler. Ok, now you can start with the "I'll kick your ass emo jokes."
