    Default Four UFC veterans confirmed for one night eight man tournament

    http://www.mixedmartialarts.com/news...an-tournament/

    Just recently a Oklahoma promoted BattleGround's MMA marked the return of the one night eight man tournament and today revealed four of the competitors are former UFC fighters:

    BattleGrounds MMA CEO Kenny Monday informed MMAFighting.com on Wednesday that Dennis Hallman (53-14-2, 1 no-contest), Cody McKenzie (15-4), Josh Bryant (14-4) and Luigi Fioravanti (24-11), who competed inside the Octagon in the past, will be part of the GP. Chris Honeycutt (4-0) is also in, and the final three fighters will be announced "soon."

    "We are excited to have assembled a group of incredibly talented and accomplished athletes for this landmark tournament," Monday stated in a release sent to MMAFighting.com.

    I'm guessing it's on Indian Land, lol.

    CSAC allowed 8-man one-night tourneys under SF, but they were only 2 rounders.

    I wouldn't be surprised--if it's not on a res--if this follows that format.

    Last tourney I can remember stateside would have to be the Shine:LWGP that Fickett won. I'm sure there were others(I think Taichi had one) but not many recently.

    Damn for a moment I thought that 4 UFC veterans would return to the UFC for a 1 night tournament.
    Not only brazilians can do this stuff

    Lol that would be pretty awesome if the ufc had a thing where they select 8 people for a one night tourney with the winner gets a spot on their roster.

    I'd watch thatif it was like 10 or 15 bucks. I wonder how its gonna be sanctioned like fedorlei said. What riv said is interesting too because I think in the unified rules it says you can go five rounds in one night so that could be what they are doing, splitting it up.

    It's just a one night tournament featuring featherweights against welterweights. What's the big deal?
