June M. Williams

Vote now in the Bloody Elbow Baddest Tournament to determine the Greatest MMA Fighter of All Time. Today's match-up: #1 Georges St. Pierre vs. #8 Takanori Gomi. Vote now!

In the tournament's biggest upset to date, Jon Fitch shocked the world, defeating Anderson... no, sorry, I can't even type it. Let's try that again.

In a result that comes as a surprise to absolutely no one, Anderson Silva ran over Jon Fitch by a score of roughly 300-6 (actual scoring may be slightly different). Silva now squares off with Frank Shamrock in the Sweet 16.

Today, our last #1 seed steps into action. UFC Welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre (24-2) faces the challenge of Pride great Takanori Gomi (34-9(1)). The Pride faithful are strong, but it's going to take quite the rally for The Fireball Kid to knock off GSP.
