(I would have put more heavies and light heavies... it's really not fair or realistic to think Hughes v. Couture or Vera v. St. Pierre would get sanctioned in the U.S. but plenty Light Heavies could make Hwt by not cutting. Good Idea for a post though.)

How was the bracket determined?



I just took the 16 best fighters in my opinion and practically just did a numberseed on paper and thats how I ended up with the matches.

Right now the race is tight between Pierre/Vera, Liddell/Gonzaga, Silva/Sherk and surprisingly Karo/Rich

Keep it up guys good stuffm very intrigued very very intrigued who makes it on to round 2 which will happen on Monday-Tuesday and that will be a one match type of thing in which I reveal who made it onto the second round, one match at a time.

Cro-Cop still shutting out Forrest Griffin, very very very funny comment on the first fatailtity post, good stuff

See Wandy has not offically signed a UFC contract, so that rules him out, I was thinking about throwing Rampage in there (considering he is the champion) but for some reason I threw Forrest Griffin in there (possible brain fart who knows?) and the reason why Henderson is not in there, is just because I do not see him being that great, yes he is better than Forrest and Stevenson, and even Karo, but I just tried to mix and match with the weights, in which I did leave out Rampage (my bad), Nate Marquardt, and even Big Nog, but I was just trying to give every weight class its proper respect.
So Sorry for the snubs of Marquardt, Big Nog, Rampage, Henderson, Herring, Serra and Hermes Franca.

Must say NOT ONE PERSON has voted for Griffin, which makes you all smart fans.

Its still a close race for Vera/Pierre and Liddell/Gonzaga with every other match practically won, voting for round 1 ends tomorrow, Round 2 Starts also tomorrow, with new match-ups and new voting.
