The rest of the fights should be paired up like this


Gilbert Melendez vs Artur Oumakhanov
Mitsuhiro Ishida vs Caol Uno
Andre Dida vs Jung Bu-Kyung

At the end of the 1st Round I think the match ups come out like this

JZ gets the out bracket because he's the first seed

Gilbert Melendez vs Buscape Firmimo
Tatsuya Kawajiri vs Andre Dida
Mitsuhiro Ishida vs Hellboy Hansen

Semi-Finals

Gilbert Melendez vs Hellboy Hansen
Tatsuya Kawajiri vs JZ Calvancante

Finals

Gilbert Melendez vs JZ Calvancante

And I think Golbert wins the Tournament, You heard me say it First

Yeah This does look really good and I'll definetly be watching it somewhere.
I'm a fan of Melendez for sure and I like hanson alot I would love to see these guys in the ufc even though the division they fight in is stacked I think they would climb to the top real quick.
I'm going for Melendez to win the whole thing but I do like a handful of the fighters, can't wait.
