All hail the Last Emperor. Fedor Emelianenko has made it through to the next round, taking out leglock beast Rousimar Palhares. Three more wins and Fedor is a two time champ, but it's going to get a lot tougher from here on out.
Today, it's the tournament Cinderella Man back in action. #7 Matt Hughes has already upset #2 seed Ronda Rousey. Now, he looks to keep that upset streak alive and take out #3 Royce Gracie. These two men famously fought in the UFC, with Hughes taking home the lopsided TKO win over a past his prime Gracie. Will that real world meeting impact the vote here? That's up to you.
