Well that was not pretty. #3 seed B. J. Penn simply crushed #6 Jeremy Horn, leaving the MMA pioneer a bloody mess in a slaughter of a first round match-up. Big, impressive win from Penn. Now, he steps in to an incredibly tough fight as he takes on Big Nog in the next round.
Today, it's time to go old school. #3 Royce Gracie vs. #6 Oleg Taktarov. This is a fight that really should have happened at some point, but sadly never did. It's Sambo vs. Jiu Jitsu, Russia vs. Brazil in a battle between two of the men who introduced submission fighting to MMA. You decide who moves on.
