There going to be no brackets in this tournament. After the first round is over, all four winners are going to be matched up again. Pride is saying that this format will make a more interesting tourney.

God I hope that Arona is matched up against Yoshida in the first round. That would free up so many other sweet matches.

This is going to be the opening round plus 3-4 heavyweight matches.

Some of the rumors right now are:
Nogueira vs. Cro-Cop
And maybe the return of Vov.

** The final round is going to take place in November.

Is it legal to make a fighter fight that many fights in one night?

so with the re-matching up the winners will be pitted against another opponent by the choice of pride not by bracket

It is legal on indian reservations, because technically that is not US property, that is why most of the smaller promotions are held on them. It is illegal for a person to fight more than one fight a night in the big cities like Las Vegas or anywhere where the SAC is involved....

Hey, i got an answer to my question.

What about in Japan? what are the rules there?

Mr. Beelzebub

I don't think there are any rules against it because in the second round (In November), the winners are fighting twice that night.
