So says none other than Scott Coker...and if he's on it'll be a loss to a familiar face. "I believe that there are going to be some upsets in this tournament. On one side you'll have Alistair Overeem and he will fight (Josh) Barnett. The other prediction is, if Fabricio Werdum beats Alistair (Overeem), I believe Fabricio can beat Fedor (Emelianenko) again and he'll probably fight (Josh) Barnett. That's my prediction, but in these things you never know, I'm just throwing out some names. The reality is we're going to have a lot of fun watching it unfold."

I keep thinking about the JDS knockout of Werdum and thinking there's no way he beats Overeem. I also don't see Fedor being able to beat Overeem. So I'm picking Overeem and I can also see Rodgers upseting Barnet. But who knows anything could happen. I'm just psyched for the tournament.

I think its either gonna be Fedor or Overeem, which is why they should have been on opposite ends of the brackets.

My heart says Fedor but dam Overeem has looked good lately.

To the Overeem haters, and ppl who don't give him the respect. Maybe after he wins this tourny he will get some love. Either way, he is better than any UFC HW.....ever....PERIOD!!!!!

I'm rooting for allistar, but my gut says that this tourney will never see an end the way it should. Either somebody will get injured or there will be contract disputes or some kind of bs will happen leaving us all upset.

I am predicting a final of Overeem v Barnett, but one or both gets suspended in the US, so the tourney final will occur on a boat in international waters. (possibly the Scientology ship)

This tournament is rad sweet matchups all the way to the finals no matter how it goes I'll be happy if either Rogers, Fedor or Arlovski win it.
