The opening round is in the books, and so far, there's been some excellent discussion. All four #1 seeds have moved on to the Sweet 16, with only one real upset so far, in Matt Hughes taking our Ronda Rousey. Now, the next round begins as we begin looking towards the Elite 8.
Up first is the man chosen by BE readers as the Greatest of All Time: Fedor Emelianenko. Fedor is ranked at #2 in this tournament, and with a win here, he can get one step closer to a repeat. Standing in his way is the knee-snapping leglocks of #3 ranked Rousimar Palhares. Can Palhares topple the Last Emperor? Your votes will decide it.
