i would be pissed if they brought it back to the way it was, the tournament system does not work. for example, just look at this past Dream. Eddie Alvarez is unable to fight for the belt he so justly deserves and the guy he defeated earlier on winds up winning the belt instead no to mention he was a lot fresher than Aoki who had just gone through a 15 min battle. the tournament system does way more bad than good and i would not like to see it used.
this is the perfect response. exactly what i was going for.
i think that most new fans of mma (no offense to the post starter) thinks tourneys are a good idea, because they havnt seen examples of why they dont work well.
Imagine waiting for two of your favorite fighters to fight, and having it ruined by one or both being tired or injured.
If it HAD to happen, which it won't, i would do it pride style where it happens over the course of months
