The latest tournament fight was the 2001 Pride vs. UFC mega-dream fight, as #1 seed Kazushi Sakuraba took on Frank Shamrock. And in this battle of grappling supremacy, it was the Gracie Hunter who stood tall, taking out Shamrock by an absolutely crushing score of 106-6. Seriously, 106-6. That is destruction folks.

Today, an interesting battle of new school vs old school. Representing the new is the #3 seed Rousimar Palhares.
