June M. Williams

Monday, I said that, despite his #7 ranking, Conor McGregor was a live dog against #2 seed Bas Rutten. I was wrong. So wrong. McGregor got taken to the woodshed by El Guapo, losing by a resounding 82-16. Brutal, but deserved. That sets up our next second round fight, as Bas will take on Jon Jones in a MMA nerd fantasy dream match. (Seriously. BAS RUTTEN vs. JON JONES - you know you wish you could see that)

Today, our last 4 vs 5 match up. Up first, it's the #4 seed, longtime former UFC Welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre. He takes on the fleet footed #5 seed Dominick Cruz. Which former champ will move on to the next round to square off against the formidable fists and chin of Mark Hunt? You decide.
