I'm not sure if this has ever been done before. I've seen some tourneys for different weight classes but I've yet to see a pound-for-pound tournament on the site. I'll admit, I haven't been on the site very long, so if it has been done before that's my bad, but if not, I feel like this is a really cool idea. Most people on this site know what they're talking about so you know what this tournament entails - if everyone was in the same weight class and the matchups was strictly based on skill, who would win. This first post is gonna just list the 16 fighters that I've selected to participate in the tourney, and I want to get the opinions of the rest of the maniacs on what the seeds should be and once I get a significant amount of responses I'll post the matchups and polls and we can let the tourney begin. I've come up with 15 fighters, and posted a poll with a bunch of fighters to see who the rest of the site believes should be the final fighter in the tourney - this fighter will automatically be the 16th seed. Vote on #16 and rank your 15 fighters and then we can get this bad boy rollin'. Enjoy!
