According to an article posted today at MMAJunkie.com
:One aspect of the tournament I found interesting is that the pairings won’t be announced until Thursday’s weigh-ins (fighters will draw lottery balls and choose which slots in the brackets they want). If you’re one of the fighters, you’ve got a ton of homework to do. You have to plan for every scenario. You have to study up on all three of your possible opponents — without even knowing which one you fight first.
MMAPlayground has the bracket pairings and odds listed as:
Falaniko Vitale (-230) vs. Yuki Sasake (+205)
Jorge Santiago (+140) vs. Trevor Prangley (-150)
So which is true? Are the bracket pairings already set, or will they be announced Thursday at the weigh-ins?
If the matches are not made until Thursday, it is entirely possible that the pairings listed here on MMAPlayground might not happen.
