I made a similar post on the MMA board (on page 2) in regards to the brackets. someone made an interesting post potentially explaining this.

Overeem vs Werdum is Champ vs #1 contender
Fedor vs Big Foot is to determine the next #1 contender

So when those fights play out then you've got the Champ vs the #1 Contender again.

And on the other side of the bracket you've got the guys fighting out to determine who will be the #2 contender and the eventual winner for that side will rightfully fight for the belt (after the #1 contenders have been dealt with).
