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: #3 Royce Gracie vs. #7 Matt Hughes: The rematch. Vote now!

I'm not going to lie - I'm sad. First Big Nog is knocked out by Roy Nelson, then he's eliminated from the tournament by B.J. Penn. It's not been a good week for one of the sport's all time great. Nogueira fell to Penn by a pretty wide margin of 64-25. With that, the #3 ranked Penn now moves on to face Kazushi Sakuraba.

Today, we close out the round with the fight I have been most looking forward. Matt Hughes vs. Royce Gracie II. This match-up between #3 seed Gracie and #7 seed Hughes took place already a few weeks ago, with the two men battling to a hard fought draw. Now, we do it again. At stake is the last slot in the Elite 8 and a shot at #1 seed Frank Mir. Can one man pull ahead and get the win? Let's find out.
