    Replacement fight - Shane Del Rosario (10-0) vs. Lavar Johnson (15-3) - Del Rosario by first round TKO or submission

    Barnett (26-5) vs Rogers (11-2) - Barnett submission first round
    Overeem (34-11-1) vs Werdum (14-4-1) - Overeem by first round TKO

    -----

    Next up Barnett vs Arlovski - Barnett first round submission
    Overeem vs Bigfoot Silva - Overeem first round TKO

    ----

    Barnett vs Overeem - Overeem gets DQd for either knee to the head of a grounded opponent or biting of headbutting.

    -----------

    Barnett becomes champ...first title defense is Fedor and Fedor KOs Barnett to get the belt back....then Overeem fights Barnett...Overeem wins....Fedor decides he wants to fight Del Rosario....Overeem moves to the UFC....Fedor vacates the title...then Daniel Cormier gets the belt.
    This sounds about right

    I don't know why but I think SF is going to find some way to destroy this GP and not make him half interesting as it should be...

    maybe they promised fedor/werdum or fedor/AO or werdum AO and any of theese 3 together vise versa maybe its a contract thing designed by M1 who knows but if were all smart enough to relaize how fuckin dumb this is im sure they would

    EDIT. I would be interested to see who the replacements are, cos with 8 guys one is bound to drop out.
    yeah, it's very interesting. well, we have about a month to find out as the first two quarterfinal bouts are on feb 12th, and then the other two quarterfinal bouts are not until march or april (which is kind of a bummer). a lot can happen between now and then.

    i am with fedorlei. as stoked as i am for this tourney, i really wish it was set up more like the pride mw grand prix. i am still puzzled why the brackets are set up the way they are. coker should have spread the talent out better.

    Fedorlei's post sums up my thoughts perfectly. Rep'd.
    After reading that I think he needs a hug more than rep!

    i wish that substitute is Jeff Monson. I think he deserves a spot in that tourney more than Rogers, Kharitonov, and even AA at this point. I know he said he will move down to LHW, but he does match up well with anyone in this tourney, and I always thought he had the skills to give Fedor a hell of a fight.

    I keep wondering wich Sub the would move on.. Ima assume Del rosario would be best bet.. but if they wanna go with a face I guess overeem/ sefo winner.. both those guys wont go anywhere though.

    AO is going to knock everyone out in the first round, to retain his belt. =)

    Whose your money on pulling out of the Tourney? I dont expect them all to stick around honestly, 1 of them is bound to get "hurt" or come up with something and back out.

    I kinda wanna go out on a limb and say Arlovski goes batshit crazy and wins this thing. Highly unlikely, but I have always been a fan of Andre and it was horrible watching him go on that tear of bad fights and poor performances. I think if he is back on track, training good and has his mind right he can be a wrecking machine. Alot of people thought he was a joke for being on Jason Miller's "Bully Beatdown" but hey, thats money.
