Check out this hypothetical ProElite Heavyweight Grand-Prix

A couple days ago it was announced that ProElite is in fact planning to host a heavyweight grand-prix at some point in 2012. With ProElite’s relation with Bellator and BAMMA, our creative juices started to flow and a few hours later, an entire graphical heavyweight bracket was created, complete with alternate bouts. A brief breakdown of why we chose the fighters and placed them in their respective brackets is after the jump.

  • Brett Rogers vs. Todd Duffee: Otherwise known as the fastest KO in Strikeforce history vs. the fastest KO in UFC history. If this doesn’t end in the first round, then we’re all failures at life.
  • Andrei Arlovski vs. Guram Gugenishvili: Battle of the massive Eastern European guys with facial hair. A couple months ago M-1 had a rather interesting hype campaign centered around Guram, which was deterred when he had to pull out of his M-1 bout in California last month due to an injury.
  • Fedor Emelianenko vs. Alistair Overeem: Because assembling this bracket is the only way to ensure both fighters will fight in a tournament setting. Seriously, the only way.
  • Aleksander Emelianenko vs. Cole Konrad: This bout was constructed just to see if Alek really does have a hepatitis problem.

Alternate Bouts:

  • Jon Olav Einemo vs. Ricco Rodriguez: I’m assuming this would be a highly underrated grappling match, which basically means both fighters will hesitantly strike for fifteen minuets with doing any damage. Damn.
  • Neil Grove vs. Tim Sylvia: If this bout turns out to be just a fraction of the Neil Grove vs. Zak Jensen fight, then we’re all in for a treat.
