holy shit... this is going to be amazing if it happens.
I would like to see a Gomi vs. Overeem fight.... I really wonder who would win. Overeem's obviously not the best LHW, but he's damn good... and Gomi's clearly the most talented LW... Would be interesting also to see how they could use the height and weight differences to their advantage.
shogun vs. fedor would be cool too.
shogun beat up my homie overeem, he needs to pay in blood, which would be aweomse if drawn by feddy
I would pay to see this
jesus that would be amazing
lol, jens pulver vs giant silva
sounds like a really really bad idea
they already do these type of fights... but this time it would be a GP. James Thompson vs Gomi FTW.
i dont want it to happen. thats a good way of ending fighters careers. imagine jens vs fedor.
i agree, unless i want their careers to end
i would rather the fighters move up or down a weight class, like perhaps gomi as a MW
Back in the day they never had weight classes anyway. Besides they need to start training the lighter guys to take down the heavier dudes.
that is retarded, they have weight classes for a reason you know. open weight might work in submission wrestling tournys but it is too much of a advantage/disadvantage in MMA. the idea of a heavyweight fighting a light weight or even a middle is really bad.
It will be entertaining nonetheless.
Not necessarily. There's plenty of middle weights who are the same height as your average heavyweight. Where they have less power in their strikes, they make up for in speed and agility that a heavyweight won't have or be able to sustain throughout the fight.
This is the kind of gimicky crap that gives MMA a hokey image. It wasn't until they started using weight classes that MMA finally started being taken seriously and now they want to knock it back a few years?
They might as well have midget wrestling thrown in there as well.
if anything, they should let fighters fight one another +/-15lbs or so, so fighters at 170 can go up against a MW...gives more flexibility for letting people fight at their natural weight
I agree. That would propoably be the best.
pure open weight just seems like a bad idea, although it could be pretty entertaining.
I would really like to see gomi vs several people in lhw.
Fedor vs shogun or silva would be good too.
i guess its official now
