    I reallly don't think the UFC MW would put a hurtin on Pride WW fighters...I mean aside from Rich the talent isn't really top notch, whereas in Pride WW it's guys like Kang, Suloev, Filho, Bustamente, Gono, Henderson, etc.

    In my opinion guys like Rich should move to the more competitive org/class, it'd be great if he fought in Pride. (or revenged his only loss - Machida)

    YOUR WACK...UFC'S MW DIV. MIGHT BE A LITTLE DEEPER BUT THE GOOD PRIDE WW'S WOULD DO JSUT FINE IN THE UFC...ESPECIALLY NINJA, SULOEV, AND BUSTAMONTE

    I think UFC has the better MW class=Pride's WW. But to say that guys like Suloev, Kang, Bustamante, Gono, Filho, Ninja, etc have no chance in UFC is crazy talk. Bustamante left the UFC with the belt. He isn't the same fight today, but he's definitely no slouch. Suloev is a top fighter in any org. Filho is like 11-0 and is a boring fighter, but always controls the pace of his fights and has proven to be a top MW. Same with Kang, he's borderline top 10 in the world at this point. You can't deny these guys.

    anyway, I know you'll come back with a weak argument like "you suck, I rule" so save it.

    you may not be a UFC nuthugger, but you are definitely a Pride hater, I've never seen you post one positive remark about Pride.. So you are saying that Kang, Suloev, Filho, Bustamante, Gono, Chonan wouldn't be able to beat any UFC MIDDLEWEIGHTS? Or did you really mean WELTERWEIGHTS? Because everyone with common MMA knowledge knows that Pride WW=same weight class as UFC MW.

    And if you don't really care, then why bother posting on this thread other than to boost your post count and troll?

    Hendo
    Mousasi
    Suloev
    Filho

    Hendo is obviously the top fighter.

    i pick Mousasi cuz he's underrated and a great overall fighter. plus im biased, he's Armenian so i have to support him. Same with Suloev.

    Hendo is definitely the favorite of this tourney. Henderson, Mousasi, Suloev, and Filho are my picks. I picked Mousasi because he's a solid young fighter and no one else did so I kinda felt sorry for him. Suloev is just kind of a gut feeling. He just beat last years runner up, and I like how his style matches up with Kang's. Should be a great fight though either way.

    I am going with the same picks as you did (they are the fovorites to win the fights and shuold not have too much trouble doing so).

    I have to dissagree with you thinking Kang and Filho are the favorites to win the tourney as Hendo is the #1 ranked MW in the world (due to Franklin not having any competition) so I don't see how Kang would be a favorite. He is an awesome striker but if he fihgts Hendo in the finals, he will be fighting from his back.

    If Hendo and Filho are in sepperate brackets those are my picks to reach the finals and Hendo will be victorious IMO. He certainly has to be the favorite in this tourney, he is the reigning champion.
