Light Weight Grand Prix
With the merger of the WEC and the long line of fighters that are 1 or 2 fights away from a title shot why not have a GP to weed out contenders? They easily have the roster to start off with a 16 man tourney, and LW’s to spare for reserve fights. The match making would take care of its self and the fans win where we would see the best of the WEC face the UFC, which would answer how they would compare to the UFC LW division. Let me play match maker for the opening round:
Johnathan Brookins vs Charles Oliveria
Denis Silver vs Jeremy Stephens
Now I’m sure I overlooked some fighters that could be more deserving, but the idea is there. Plus plenty of room for reserve matches for good fighters coming off losses. Winner of the GP would face the winner of Edgar – Maynard – Pettis triangle, If Pettis chooses to wait for a title shot.
Am I crazy for thinking this is a good idea?
