Sakuraba lost?! Nooooo! There is no justice in this world. First Royce, now this? My world is crushed. I hope you are happy BE fans. I hope you are happy. The score? 100-95 for Dan Henderson. So if you are a Saku fan and you didn't vote, know that this is all your fault. Or at least, 1/5th your fault.

Enough. Let's move past this moment of mourning and get on with today's match-up. Time for a #1 seed to step in there. Up first? Anderson Silva (33-5). He takes on #5 Frank Shamrock (23-10-2). Shamrock already pulled off the upset by taking out BE favorite Mark Hunt. Can lightning strike twice? It's your call.
