    yeah, I think this could lead to some interesting match-ups

    I'm hoping at least they don't match him with Yoshida, Cro-Cop or Hunt for the first round

    i dont like seeing the champions in tournaments...leaves them too vulnerable to bad luck and them losing matches they normally would win

    It's cool to have him in there. I wonder who he'll be matched with first. It would probably have been better for him to be there from the start, but at least he's in.

    Thats good...having barnett, cro cop and nog in the tourney after fedor is just recovering could possibly lead to his real loss.

    Ouch. Did he break it in his last fight or what?

    I know he's had problems with his right hand before, I'm guessing it's just a recurring injury.

    What is Roman's role? Isn't he supposed to be the replacement? So is his role basically worthless in this GP?

    hmmm so how long will we have to wait to see fedor fight again, maybe he can fight somebody on the same card as the semi's or something.
