The first semi-final is done. #1 seed Frank Mir took on #2 Fabricio Werdum for a spot in the finals. And the winner who now has his shot at the championship... will be announced later. Check back on Monday as we announce both finalists. Or, I guess, you could go count the votes, but where's the fun in that?
Today, it's time to name Finalist #2. While Mir vs. Werdum was a battle for the greatest Heavyweight, this is the battle for Japan. On one side, it's Dream stand-out and #1 seed Shinya Aoki. His opponent is Pride legend and #1 seed Kazushi Sakuraba. Old school Japanese MMA or new school? The choice is yours.
