Well, it's time to get this thing underway. And, of course, in a pound-for-pound tournament, where the matchups dont have to include fighters in the same promotion or weight class, the first fight is one that we will probably see for real in the next 12 months. Since I didnt get too much feedback on my seedings, i didnt change them around at all. Therefore GSP is the top seed in the tournament. By the rules of the poll, the winner would get the 16th and final seed in the tourney. Jake Shields ended up running away with that poll and so that leads us to the first matchup of the tournament. So who wins? GSP or Shields? Take your pick!
