Vote now in the Bloody Elbow Baddest Tournament to determine the Greatest MMA Fighter of All Time. Today's match-up: #2 Wanderlei Silva vs. #3 Bas Rutten. Vote now!

Maurcio Shogun Rua put up a valiant effort, but in the end, he was unable to earn his revenge. Once again, Jon Jones stood tall over Shogun, defeating him by a score of 110-36. Jones moves on to the Elite 8 and the challenge of either B.J. Penn or Jose Aldo.

Today, it's another 2 vs. 3 match-up. So far, the 3 seeds are an impressive 2-0, scoring a pair of upsets over the 2 seeds. This time, it's up to #2 seed Wanderlei Silva (35-12-1(1)) to try and turn things around. He takes on #3 seed Bas Rutten (28-4-1) - another one of those fights that I so wish we had seen in real life.
