You may be shocked to hear this, but #1 seed Fedor Emelianenko did indeed score the win over Renan Barao. Final results were 175-15 in favor of The Last Emperor. With that, we now have our first Sweet 16 fight set - and what a fight it is. In the dream fight of 2007 it will be Russia vs. America, UFC vs. Pride, Fedor vs. Couture. Get pumped.

Today, it's two men who similarly introduced many to smaller weight classes. #2 seed and Pride veteran Kazushi Sakuraba (26-16-1(2)) takes on #7 seed former WEC champion Urijah Faber (29-6). The Gracie Hunter or The California Kid? Vote now!
