June M. Williams

In a result that should come as a surprise to absolutely no one, UFC Light Heavyweight champion and #1 seed Jon Jones rolled over Shinya Aoki, finshing the Japanese fighter off with a score of 120-29. He is likely to have a much tougher opponent next time out as he faces the winner of Shogun Rua vs. Minotauro Nogueira.

Today, it's a true clash of styles - the kind of fight MMA was invented for. In one corner, the feared kickboxer and #5 see Mirko Cro Cop Filipovic (28-10-2(1)). In the other, jiu jitsu master and the first ever face of the UFC, #4 Royce Gracie (14-2-3). Can Cro Cop land the feared head kick and send Gracie out, or will the master do what he does best? You choose.
