    I don't think it's his physique that undermines it. It makes him the "everyman" where I think Hunt also benefits.

    But Roy has been known to say a lot of things that piss people off (without getting attention like Chael does); has had a few fights were he just gasses; some TUF fights that DW thought were too boring; and generally using only a subset of his skills which makes him appear less well rounded than he is.

    And when you put him in against a top 10, he loses. This is just Bisping fans versus the world, 'Merica edition.

    Like Cat--Smasher said, a tournament is Roy's only chance of getting a title shot. His physique undermines his marketability, even though us hard-cores appreciate his fighting ability.

    And speaking of physique, I think Roy wins this weekend's "Battle of the Bodies" (aka Nelson vs Kongo).

    I am with initial zen. Lhw would be great start for a tourney. This is what they could have done if they had kept strikeforce open.

    I would enjoy seeing another tournament. Not in the heavy weight division though, I want to see the lhw's battle for the belt (or a shot at jones if not that.) I think there would be so many wars if it was held at lhw. If they all came hungry for the belt it would be glorious.

    Even in a GP format he would not be a champion in a hundred years.

    Pride 2005 MWGP is still the high point of MMA in my eyes. Bellator manages to put on a good tournaments on a regular basis. Just have a big enough prize for the winner that everybody will want in and nobody will drop out because of an injury unless its absolutely necessary.

    All one needs to remember is how fucked up the logistics of the Strikeforce tournament became.

    America wouldn't allow for a same night tournament lest it be thought of as a bloodsport again.

    Fighting more than once a night won't work to much luck or game planning just to get through the night healthy. 2 rounder may get around the commissions for a little while.
    The UFC has enough events to run a touriment One thought the one with no losses gets a shot but doulbe elimiation for 2nd contender??

    This year alone two fighters have been matched up in title fights despite coming off losses (Nick Diaz at UFC 158, Chael Sonnen at UFC 159).
    And Frankie Edgar
