BE's Baddest Greatest Submission Fighter Tournament: #2 Fabricio Werdum vs #7 Nick Diaz

June M. Williams

Vote now in the Bloody Elbow Baddest Tournament to determine the Greatest MMA Submission Fighter of All Time. Today's match-up: #2 Fabricio Werdum vs #7 Nick Diaz. Vote now!

You didn't actually think that would be a close fight did you? Overall #1 Shinya Aoki brought his carzy submission acumen in there against Jake Shields, easily rolling over the former Strikeforce and Elite XC champion. With that win, Aoki prepares for brutal 2nd round opponent and a showdown with Genki Sudo. Let's all take a moment to imagine an actual Genki Sudo vs. Shinya Aoki match, and cry a little bit that it never happened.

Today, it's Brazil vs. Stockton, as #2 Fabricio Werdum faces #7 Nick Diaz. Little brother Nate has already been eliminated from the tournament, and with Shields's loss, it's all up to Nick to represent the team and leave round 1 on a high note. Don't be scared Werdum.
