    WFA to hold 8 man 205 lb tourney?

    Has anyone heard anything about this or is it a scoop? Erik Paulson was at our school this weekend, and he talked to our instructor about the fact the he was cutting weight to fight in a WFA 8 man tourney. Top prize for winning the whole thing was a total of $3 million. Fights would be over multiple events, not one night. :eek3:

    Erik also put my instructor on the phone with Josh Barnett, who said he is hopefully fighting Fedor next. He has had Rampage on the phone before too, and Chris said Rampage was a suprisingly nice guy over the phone, who asked him when he was coming to Cali to train with them and Erik.

    edit: possibly World Fighter, not WFA. I'm not sure.

    could be either, but the world fighter has been the rumored one thats spitting out all these crazy mills for fighters, like giving frank shamrock a 2 mil contract with them. If it's true that would be awesome, i just hope they have fighters competing that are worth the 3 mill prize

    That would be awesome, but a $3 mil prize seems a bit excessive. W/ pay-outs like that, they would be bank rupt in no time...

    with a $3 million winner prize, it should at least be a 16 man tournament...

    $3mil for a fighter winning even three fights sounds like a recipe for bankrupcy unless you're name is Zuffa or DSE.

    yeah you dont get 3 mil to win the Pride OWGP. 3 mil would bring out everbody who dosent have an exclusive contract with another organization.

    That would explain why Rampage didn't sign with the UFC.

    That and he's scared of The Iceman.

    Was no KO. Chuck has never been KO'd. He did give him a hell of a beating though.

    In a rematch I would bet the house on Chuck. Rampage hasn't been the same since Wandy brutalized him.

    War Iceman.
