2011 Bloody Elbow Tournament of Bad: Steve Jennum Region Round of 32 Voting


After a long and extensive process, esteemed colleague Brent Brookhouse and I are proud to bring you the 2011 Bloody Elbow Tournament of Bad, an idea from the local Chicago sports radio show, Boers and Bernstein. The concept is simple: compile a list of 64 of the worst things related to the sport of MMA and pit them against one another in an NCAA Tournament-style bracket. You, the readers, vote on each match up until we have our ultimate champion.

We have a couple close races in the Harold Howard region. You still have time to vote; polls close at midnight ET. And if you don't have it bookmarked by now, check out the updated bracket.

We end the Round of 32 in the Steve Jennum Region. The matchups:

(1) Alan Belcher's Johnny Cash tattoo vs. (8) Cecil Peoples, in every form
