 "You think those three are the only ones participating in the Grand Prix?" What's sad is that Sok and Babalu are pretty much guaranteed to be the best guys in it other than Mousasi.

I wonder if we'll ever see open-weight grand prix again. Pride had multiple weight class grand prix before its open-weight 2006 one.

 They better get some other good fighters in there. Mousasi vs Sokoudjou or Babalu is not appealing. At all. It's like putting Anderson Silva in a tounrament with Franklin and Griffin.

So far what IVe seen itsMousasiBabaluSokoudjouNinjaM'PumbuReally with they would have left off Sokoudjou. Because he will most likely win his first fight then end up in a rematch with Gegard or Babalu. If they were going to have all 3 of those in it I wish they wouldve made it a 16 man, so they could get built somewhat back upHopefully Dream is able to get Kyle or Feijao from Strikeforce. Glover Teixeira would be awesome, but doubt that will happen. Im assuming theyll want some Japanese talent in there other then Minowa, the other most known Japanese LHW would be Kawamura who is with Sengoku.

Pretty sure Ninja fights at LHW nowwould I like to see Mousasi fight UFC LHWs? Of course, who wouldn'tthe guy is still young and wants to fight as much as possible,since he's locked up in the states with SF, is he not supposed to fulfill his DREAM contract?the tournament format basicly guarantees excitement, and creates new stars along the waythat's the beauty of a GP, anything can happenit doesn't have to always be ranked vs ranked to be enjoyable
