June M. Williams

There's been a slight delay due to the busy holiday season, but we are now back with the next fight in our BE's Baddest Greatest Striker tournament. Last time out, we saw a battle between two men who were victorious this past weekend in the UFC. Inside our cage, it was Lyoto Machida claiming the win over Renan Barao by a lopsided score of 71-4. The #1 seed Machida now moves on to a fascinating Brazil vs Brazil showdown with Vitor Belfort.

Today, it's a clash of MMA eras. On one side you have #2 seed and current UFC Lightweight champion Anthony Pettis. He takes on #7 seed and old school Pride KO machine Igor Vovchanchyn - a fighter so old school he's not even in our database. Can the fearsome Ukranian pull off the upset and take out the young champ? Your call.
