Default Re: Do Tournaments have a place in modern MMA?

I like to see two good contenders matchups where you know the winners will probably meet up. If they could actually enforce those sorta things every once in a while (like a 4 man tourney to crown a no.1 contender in a packed division) I think that would add intrigue to things but the way UFC does business I'd say that tournaments will have no impact other than this, which is just extending what they're doing to crown a champ at Fly to crowning a contender in a top heavy division.

But I like the way Zuffa build their guys up now really, it's not a sticking point for me by any means, might just add a little more intrigue now and then.

One things for sure we'll all be tuning in to see who goes on to fight Benavidez for the title. It adds extra intrigue to the McCall-Johnson rematch because it's not just 'who will win this' it's 'what do they have for Benavidez'?

Hope some of this rambling post makes sense
