I hate Russians with a passion but I respect Fedor.

I don't even think he really is Russian since his name ends with KO (like many of hs fights) , that is an Ukrainian name and not Russian.

Here is the Tourney bracket, the Fedor Bracket looks extremely dangerous, either he faces Werdum again, or up and comer Ubereem ( If he can get through Silva)

Why would they have Overeem and Fedor on the same side of the bracket?...shouldn't they have set it up so there's a possibility they face each other in the finals?...considering they're the best two of the bunch.

I don't know why they bother calling it a tournament if the fighters are just going to fight once a card.

hey its better then nothing, plus I dont like fighters fighting more then once in a night it sometimes robs us of good fights since the likelihood of injury is high.

Yup Im wondering why they put them also under the same bracket.

That's terrible if that's the final bracket. It seems they set it up that way in case that Overeem, Werdum, or Fedor get upset before they got to face each other, but 1 side is stacked and the other side is lacking. It won't happen, but what if Bigfoot, Werdum, Arlovski and Rogers all win in the first round?

Isn't having a better chance for Overreem and Fedor to meet better? And in tournament format, first rounds and semi finals are more entertaining to watch.
