Bellator MMA will host an eight-man heavyweight tournament in 2018, with the eventual winner claiming the promotion's vacant heavyweight championship.

Officials confirmed the plans to ESPN on Friday, following an initial report by USA Today. The tournament, dubbed Bellator MMA World Grand Prix, will unfold over the course of 2018, with the finals hopefully taking place prior to the end of the year.

The field features several of the promotion's biggest names: Fedor Emelianenko, Chael Sonnen, Quinton "Rampage" Jackson, Frank Mir, Roy Nelson, Matt Mitrione, Muhammed "King Mo" Lawal and current light heavyweight champion Ryan Bader.

Bellator has not yet announced the tournament bracket but is expected to in the coming months.

Hard to pick a favorite! I am a huge fan of Rampage, Sonnen, Fedor and Big Country.

Old man Fedor vs old man Mir would be cool. Chael vs Rampage too. I have a feeling Bader is going to LnP his way to a tournament win and everyone is going to be pissed lol.

- Would be cool to see Mariusz, Kongo,BigFoot Silva, Sergei Kharitonov and Minowaman. I know Minowa isnt a heavy-weight, he is a Minowa-weight fighter!
Can you guys imagine a full aren fist pumping when Minowa goes to the ring?

Would be akin of The Shield reunion!
