I excluded the "superfight" and openweight UFC tournament champions simply because I didn't have enough space in the 16-fighter brackets.

How do you see these going?

I think that Igor Vovchanchyn should get a seed.

True.

Fedor already beat close to half those guys on that list anyway. Id love to see Fedor versus Igor. Very similar stylistically, both robots, and both have a vast experience over everyone else in that tournament. I want to see which version is better, Igor v1.0 (Igor) or Igorv2.0 (Fedor).
