    Only if it were divided into two tournaments; 205 and under, and 206 and up. The larger LHWs such as Tito, Forrest, or Rampage would compete in the HW bracket while some of the smaller LHWs such as Machida or Shogun would be in the 205 and under bracket.

    206+: Lesnar, Mir, Carwin, JDS, Cain, Tito, Rampage, Randy

    205: BJ, Kenny, GSP, Alves, Anderson, Wandy, Shogun, Machida,

    1. No
    2. Nog, Brock, Cain, Mir, Carwin, Dos Santos, Crocop, Gonzaga, Struve, Machida, A Silva, Shogun, Page, Randy, Kongo, Duffee

    Now that I look at that list I would have to reconsider my answer to the first question.

    In no way would this be a good idea. It would prove nothing if someone the size of Brock lays on top of someone the size of Penn and does some G&P.

    I was quite sure he was around 275, since he came into the Kongo fight at 265. But 295 is a little too hard to believe

    It wouldn't prove who is "really really the best" and would completely confuse the already-confused pound for pound nonsense.

    It's not a good idea, specifically in the UFC where they deliberately shy away from rankings so they're free to manipulate marketing and do matchups they feel will make them money.

    anderson

    bj
    mir
    machida
    shogun
    fitch

    I vote No.

    I would go with....

    Never mind I just realized how bad of idea this is, there is no way this could be competative save for a few fights. The quality and skill of fighters these days would mean the size would play such a huge factor when it comes to the HW's. Bj could win it if it was a open up to 205 tournament.

    Hell, why not.

    I'd say no, for the same reasons others are saying. But my eight would be...

    Anderson
    Machida
    Rampage
    GSP
    BJ Penn
    Lesnar
    Liddell
    Mir
