Default UFC P4P Bracket

So, I was bemoaning my terrible March Madness bracket & I had an idea: the UFC refuses to put together another tournament style card, so I figured I'd do it for them, bracket & all:



Before you start bombarding me with questions, here's how I worked out the seedings:

Champions were shoe-ins for 1 seeds (Brock is the least experienced of the 5, so he was bumped to a 2 seed). From there, I looked to a few different factors: win streaks, win percentages, notable wins, etc. Basically, I drew up a top ten for each division, then weighed them against each other for a top-32 P4P.

OK, so let the discussions begin. Remember: try to pretend that everyone has been magically resized to be relatively the same (though no matter how you slice it, Brock is still one big m-fer!!).

after bombing the MM bracket... I'm afraid to touch this one... I'll just pick Matt to lose in the first round and he'd be virtually guaranteed a spot in the championship fight...

Question...are we talking about when everybody is in their respective primes or current? That's definitely going to make a difference in picks. Once I have that info, I'll submit a bracket.

Straight up I would pick Chuck to beat BJ but assuming they were all the same size, I think BJ is a better fighter - especially on the ground. Nog in his prime might beat Forrest but right now, at the same size, I think Forrest is better. I'm going by the fighters current status, ability, etc.

Not assuming each in their prime. That would change a few picks.

yeah .. i guess we would have to see if BJ could take chuck down ... randy wasn't able to in 2 & 3, and tito wasn't able to ... that is why i would take chuck .. also, i think the forrest fight would go to the ground and nog would have a field day with forrest .. but hey, this is a P4P bracket, so your picks are still yours ..LOL .. good picks though ..

Here's the assumptions for the brackets:

1) Everyone is at their current performance level. I might do a UFC GOAT bracket later, but this one is for the "current" UFC P4P Champ
2) Everyone is the same proportional size. If a guy looks small compared to his weight class, then he's small. Example: Kenny & Anderson are both fairly long & lean for their weight classes, so assume they'd be the roughly same size.

As for how much free time I have, the answer is none. I've been using this as a pressure release. I've got 5 different papers due in 3 classes over the next 5 weeks, and they're all in the 6-10 page range. Toss in work & trombone lessons & rehearsals for my upcoming concert, I've been swamped (hence my recent absence from around here).
