Alright everyone, here it is. The ultimate "what if" scenario where your opinions actually decide the outcomes of matches. I have taken 20 well known or well disciplined fighters from all the weight classes that mmaplayground covers in its rankings. 10 fighters from each of the weight classes will be the current top 10 ranked fighters on this website, while the other 10 are just fighters who are either good or just crazy wild card fighters I thought would be interesting. Each week I will do a new weight class to decide the world champion of each class. Naturally, voting will determine the winner of each weight class. Voting will be carried out with a single response to the initial post by myself. Please DO NOT respond to other's posts! And finally, post what round you wish them to go down in and how you wish it to go down (Rd. 3 via rear naked choke). The individual with the most votes and the most similar corresponding finishes will be recorded into the results. Lets begin with the heavyweights. Here is the list of fighters and their corresponding matches (which were drawn based on randomly generated numbers):

Not to be a dick and ruin your game, but I think you should leave Fedor off. At least then it would be kind of interesting, but with him in there, he pretty much wins every fight.

Perhaps, but he'll probably run into some interesting matches with some creative endings.

Where's the love for Kharitonov? Also, I think Fujita would make for more interesting matches than perhaps Butterbean.

1. Fedor Emelianenko vs. Randy Couture- NC RD1. While in process of slam Randy and Fedor fuse into one ultra weapon call Randor Cotanekko. Chuck Norris, Chuck Liddell, Mirko Cro Cop, and Nog all decide they must combine forces to survive.
2. Fabricio Wedum vs. Tim Sylvia- Tim Sylva wins by KO Rd 1 4:59 (punch)- Bog bad Tim is back.
3. Bob Sapp vs. Heath Herring- Sapp gases and cannot finish Herring (who has a torn _______ (insert a injury). And Herring yells at him. Sapp begins to cry like he did after Cro Cop punched him. Herring gets the decision 30-0 (3 judges) even though he clearly lost the fight. Respect for Sapp is at a all time high of Zero after this fight.
4. Antonio Silva vs. Gary Gooridge- Goodridge makes amazing MMA comeback with a 1st Rd KO at 5:57 by Punches
5. Mark Hunt vs. Brandon Vera- RD1 :02 TKO (forefit) Vera leaves due to not enough $$$$$
6. Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira vs. Mirko Filipovic- RD1 4:33Mirko Cro Cop hits Nog with the LHK again and this time it stops him.
7. Andrei Arlovski vs. Aleksander Emelianenko- KO RD1 7:36 Arlovski KO's Aleks with a spinning back fist taught to him by Shonie Carter
8. Ricco Rodriguez vs. Dan Severn- NC overruled by NSAC- Severn too old, Ricco to out of shape
9. Paul Buentello vs. Josh Barnett- KO RD1 Buentello KO's Barnett in simlira fashion to Rizzo/ Barnett
10.Eric "Butterbean" Esch vs. Jeff Monson- NC RD1 1:34Esch slips on snow and Monson slips on butter, both fighters cannot continue due to injury.

Alright took me awhile to figure this game out but here i go.

I dont hate any of these fighters im just doing it for fun. Mad respect for RR!

Not to be picky, but in the future I think you should rank the top 20 fighters in each weight class and then have them go through the following bracket.

Prelims: 16 vs. 20, 15 vs. 19, 14 vs. 18, 13 vs. 17

1st round A:1 vs. 16 or 20, B:2 vs. 15 or 19, C:3 vs. 14 or 18, D:4 vs. 13 or 17, E:5 vs. 12, F:6 vs 11, G:7 vs 10, H:8 vs. 9

2nd round I: A vs H, J: B vs. G, K: C vs. F, L: D vs. E

Semi's M: I vs. L N: J vs. K

Championship M vs. N

If I get time I will post a pic of a bracket, but basically it is a standard wrestling bracket. Couture should not be fighting Fedor in the first round, that's #1 vs. #5!

It's not bracketed, its all based on random number picks. In the next round I am going to give a random fighter a by because of the odd number of matches that will occur. Bracketed matches are too predictable. I think its interesting to do random toss ups so no one really knows who is fighting who. The heavyweights are a bit predictable because the talent is so top heavy, but the other weight classes will be much more interesting. But thanks for your input.

This is a round robin format folks. Individual who you feel wins most of their matches wins. Sorry this is such a lame way to end the tournement, but 20 turned out to be a really stupid number because of the odds that come about. Humor me and finish this one up so we can get a heavyweight champ, and then we can get voting on another weight class! Thanks!
