How Champions Should Be Determined
Yesterday I said that it is a common practice to pad fighters records. So, when you see a fighter who is undefeated, don't be overly impressed. I think the best way to find a champion is through tournaments. You take the top fighters and have them eliminate each other until one remains. This way the winner has to just fight and see what happens. He doesn't get to do a training camp for one particular opponent. He finds out fight day and has to make his way through several opponents. If you remember Pride Fighting Championships, you will remember Fedor, Minatoro, Crocop, etc. These fighters would fight the best of the best in one tournament to be crowned the champ.
