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).
I agree, there are always upsets that happen in Tournaments, the finals never work out with what they want. So this way, You can possibly see a Fedor/Overeem matchup, or Fedor/Werdum rematch in the 2nd round, with a possibility of a Fedor/Kharitonov or Fedor/Barnett matchup in the finals, mind you none of that happens if Big Foot beats Fedor...But I love this tournament.
