In the battle of Japan, it was a classic fight between two grappling greats. But in the end, #1 seed Shinya Aoki had little trouble moving to the next round, taking out #5 Genki Sudo. We are all one? Alas, not any more. Aoki will now face the winner of our GOAT tournament, Fedor Emelianenko in the Elite 8.
Today, another very interesting fight. #2 seed Antonio Rodrgio Nogueira (who did not, I repeat DID NOT fight this past weekend and no video evidence you can provide will convince me otherwise. Nope, didn't happen.) takes on #3 B.J. Penn. This should be an interesting one.
