The first battle of the BE's Baddest GOAT Tournament is in the books and it was a good one. UFC Heavyweight greats Randy Couture and Cain Velasquez went toe-to-toe in a closely contested battle. In the end, it was Randy Couture who, in true Randy Couture fashion, pulled off the hard fought win, 98-83. He moves on to the Sweet 16 where he awaits the winner of Fedor Emelianenko vs. Renan Barao.
Today, our first cross-divisional battle, pitting #3 seed Jose Aldo against #6 seed Josh Barnett. This is the current UFC Featherweight champion and one of the sport's top 5 pound-for-pound fighters vs. one of the great Heavyweights and a former UFC Heavyweight champion. Who advances? That's up to you.
