Here it is folks - the official start of the BE Baddest tournament. Join us in the coming weeks as we determine the Greatest MMA Fighter of All Time. Nominations are in, the field of 64 is set, and we're ready to go. Here's how it works - every 2 days, we'll have a new match-up. You vote. After 24 hours, voting closes, and whoever has the most votes moves on to the next round. Easy enough, right? Then let's get started.
Up first, a big Heavyweight battle, as #4 seed Randy Couture takes on #5 seed Cain Velasquez. Both are multiple time UFC Heavyweight title holders with strong wrestling pedigrees. Both have a spot on the list of all time great Heavyweights. But only one can move on.
In order to vote, simply leave a comment. In the subject line make sure you follow these guidelines:
To vote for Randy Couture write: Vote - Couture
To vote for Cain Velasquez write: Vote - Velasquez
Voting is open for 24 hours, so get your votes in now. Time to find out who is the GOAT.
