I'd like to see them hold a tournament with 8 guys for lHW

forrest/jardine
hendo/liddel
wanderle/ houston
shogun/machida

i think they could start it in december with one round of competition
then have the last two rounds in febuary and have the and let the title shot be in april...

This Probably won't be a popular answer, but I would replace Forrest with Babalu... Give Forrest a shot, while we are waiting for the GP to work itself out, and have the tourney winner fight the winner of Page / Griffin...

I'd juggle the format a touch as well...

Babalu / Jardine
Machida / Shogun
Wand / HA
Chuck / Hendo

Ultimately I'd like to see a Sobral / Shogun rematch, and just hope that wand would win sos I can watch Chuck / Wand (with some meaning behind it) or the rubber match with Dan

Yea it is fun to talk about but Dana did address the idea in an interview this week. He said it can never happen just cause the athletic commissions wouldn't allow it. Maybe if they only fight once a night but then it takes a long time. Also something that sets MMA apart from boxing is getting to see the top guys go at it constantly, the matchmaking will be tricky but having all these guys clamoring for the title and getting to see all these hungry guys beat up each other is a treat for us fans for sure.
