It took two fights, but in the end, Matt Hughes got it done. The former UFC Welterweight champion defeated Royce Gracie in their BE's Baddest rematch, 35-29. For those keeping track, that means the #7 ranked Hughes has now defeated #2 Ronda Rousey and #3 Royce Gracie. Next round, he has his work cut out for him as he takes on #1 Frank Mir. Can he keep the Cinderella Story alive?
Today, after his impressive defeat of Travis Browne, our #2 ranked Fabricio Werdum is up in our tournament. He takes on the #1 seed Demian Maia. Werdum has already earned a shot at Cain Velasquez - now can he earn his spot in the BE's Baddest Final 4? Your votes will decide.
