At a special press conference in Tokyo last night, all of the surviving participants from TOTAL ELIMINATION were present to determine the brackets for the conclusion of the middleweight tournament at PRIDE FC: FINAL CONFLICT.




Finalists Hidehiko Yoshida, Chuck Liddell, Quinton Jackson, and Wanderlei Silva were all in attendance. After a random selection from the four fighters, Yoshida won the choice of choosing his opponent, thus determining the formation of all brackets. The Olympic gold medallist selected PRIDE FC Middleweight champion Wanderlei Silva as his opponent, meaning Quinton Jackson will now face Chuck Liddell.

The winners of each of these match-ups will go on to the final round, which will be held on the same evening.
