El Guapo! Cult favorite Bas Rutten earned himself a ride into the Sweet 16 in our latest match-up. The former King of Pancrase (oh yeah, and UFC champ too) took home a solid victory over Women's MMA great Megumi Fujii 110-51. Everyone have a Liver Kick shot in his honor. He has a much tougher fight ahead of him though as he waits for either Wanderlei Silva or Lyoto Machida.
One more note - requests for an updated bracket and a different font? Duly noted. We'll work on that for our next match-up.
Today, we move on to what I suspect may be one of the more contentious battles of the opening round. It's #3 ranked former Pride/Strikeforce/UFC (kind of) champion #3 Dan Henderson (29-10) vs. former UFC Heavyweight champion #6 Junior dos Santos (16-2). Is the H Bomb enough to take out Cigano? Your call.
