Same here, three favorites, in one side, in other side barnett might be favorite, but he has some much issues that, I would prefer one of those werdum, fedor or overeem fighting on barnett's bracket. Let's just pray that shit happens.
Tennis fan here, sorry I have to nit pick. Real tournaments are seeded by rank, so with the exception of Fed being No.3 for a short while last year and Nadal being injured before that, Nadal and Federer would never meet in the Semis since for the past 5 years they have been #1 and #2 non stop except for the times I mentioned.
Unfortunately this tournament isn't sorted out like a tennis or other sport tournament bracket would be. Still not complaining, and trying not to be negative because there are some ballin fights to be had here!
