Tank Abbott Vs Anderson Silva
Anderson Silva Via 2nd Submission

Really? I love my old school Tank Abbott, but there is NO way he'd make it out of a round with Anderson Silva.

Chuck Lidell KO by Maia?
Eh.... He may be old but..

This is a great thread by the way. Tried not to make any freakshow fights, despite my love of them.

I'd probably go with the two round PRIDE format, but with elbows allowed. First round ten minutes, second round 5 minutes. Not sure this will be my last one of these.

Bj Penn v. Demian Maia
Anthony Johnson v. Wanderlei Silva

Thiago Alves v. Chris Leben
Nick Diaz v. Mayhem Miller

Jake Shields v. Yoshihiro Akiyama
John Fitch v. Hector Lombard

Michael Bisping v. Georges St. Pierre
Matt Hughes v. Melvin Manhoef

If i could hit an in between weight class for this OWGP - id aim for the guys who seem perfect for a 177 weight class, and some bigger more one dimensional guys that test the participants in certain area's.

I dont think Gsp would win it.
