    I think they should have a OW tourny like once a year,it'd be like the superbowl of UFC, the winner would get a tournament belt that they could show boat all year,but come next year the champ gets an automatic match in the finals to face-off against the winner of the runner ups.it would be crazy too see fights like rich franklin vs chuck liddel or hughes vs babalu,but just once a year so they dont overplay it like pride and take it over seas if it's gotta be done!

    that's exactly why i really dont like watching Pride in the first place. the fighters are great, don't get me wrong. but the fact that the champions are fighting without defending their titles is ridiculous! if you are a champ, your only fights should be defending your title, nuff said.

    i agree that the tournament thing is kind of annoying in Pride, you rarely see defenses from the champs

    but i would pay out the ass to see a UFC where we got to see a OWGP.
    it would be insane. it opens up some fights that a lot of people would love to see, like Arlovski against some of the LHWs like Chuck and Babalu, and maybe even Tito vs one of the smaller HW like Vera, without putting the belts on the line.

    yeah, thats why UFC has 5 weight classes. fighters below 205 have to be withing 5 lbs of each other at the weigh-ins prior to the fight. an open weight tourney would never work for UFC unless they took it overseas.
