    Well if they do not put Mr Ford in this tournament then we can all pretty much say for 100% certain that the reason for him not in the tournament as well as possibly not getting a chance in the UFC is due to boarder crossing issues.

    As much as this topic has been brought up this would definatly verify that fact if he is not in this round of the tournament

    I’ve seen interviews with Bjorn Rebney stating that they really want him in the tournament and are working hard to solve his border issues! Fingers crossed. Welterweight is definitely their most stacked division though, it’ll be a tough road to the top!

    “Fingers crossed…” Was that a really bad joke at the cause of the boarder issues?
