I like the elimination round. There are a lot of great fights on it as everyone is fighting for something. But if this is being scrapped for a comeback season, I am all for it
I got the impression they were scrapping the tryout process, which comes before the elimination round. I think it's more like an NFL combine.
"Previous open tryouts have been held around the U.S. and U.K. in hotels, oftentimes in the days following major UFC events in the host city. Fighters would demonstrate their striking and grappling abilities to UFC president Dana White and matchmaker Joe Silva. Those who made it beyond the initial stage were interviewed by the show's producers, and the advancing fighters then were flown to Las Vegas for medical screenings."
