| | Should the UFC adopt a tournament format?
In another thread the discussion turned to "fan favorites" getting title shots instead of fighters that may not be as exciting, but are more deserving of the title shot.
I thought a tournament style that would mimic a season would work out best.
Start with an 8 man tournament for a specific weight class.
The card would be the 4 elimination fights plus a title defense against the current #1 fighter.
Next month you have 2 eliminations fights plus three exhibition fights.
Third month is the final elimination fight plus the start of another weight class tournament (keeping with the 5 fights per PPV)
Fourth month isa the title defense plus 2 elimination fights and 2 exhibition fights.
Basically, you would keep this pattern going each month.
I guess I like having a more concrete way of ranking fighters instead of depending on human influence.
