Why couldnt the ufc have a pound for pound title belt?!? A belt open to all weight classes would be awesome and create some really good fights...... GSP vs liddell? silva vs rampage? Forrest vs arlovski? sherk vs silva? IMO this would create some of the best fights we could imagine! what do you think?

That would actually be an Open Weight belt, not a P4P belt...and the Athletic Commission would never allow it anyway.

Like Grappler said, the commission's wouldn't allow it, thats why weight classes were introduced into MMA (more so UFC, since they didnt have weight classes) so that Miss matches where a guy would out weigh the other by 100 pounds or more and whatnot wouldn't happen, The commission is responsible for the fighter's safety and this would have a chance of the fighters being seriously injured. so wont happen.

But as a fantasy thought it would be cool to see something like a Open-weight P4P GP, so you have guys like fedor, GSP, Silva, Rampage etc....and im sure there would be quite a few surprised as far as how the matches go. but realistically this would never happen.

As much as I'd like to some of the fights this would create, it will never happen. The commissions will never sanction an event like this for one simple reason, it would allow for match-ups like Tim Sylvia vs. Mark Hominick. While fights like this most likely wouldn't happen, just the possibility is enough for the commissions to ban such an event.

Unfortunately legal issues will never let this happen. R.I.P. Pride.

I am trying to introduce a new MMA tournament putting other orgs. best fighters against each other in a tournament. And who ever wins gets bragging rights. They would have a draft, and could trade fighters, would be great.

An open weight belt would bring us back to the human cockfighting days of MMA.

Yeah, let's do this instead of try to get MMA legalized in more states.
