Once upon a time, there were 3 K-1 Grand Prix champions who entered this illustrious tournament. Now, only two remain. 2010 GP winner Alistair Overeem holds the unfortunate distinction of being the only highly decorated K-1 striker to not make his way out of our opening round, as he was thoroughly shellacked by Fedor Emelianenko. Shame we never saw it in real life, but what can you do? Up next for Fedor: K-1 GP champ #2 in the form of Mirko Cro Cop. That should be a good one.
Today, a #4 vs #5 match up that really speaks to the different styles of striking in MMA. On one side, you have the power punching of #4 seed Chuck Liddell, who was at one time the dominant Light Heavyweight in UFC history. Standing against him, the speed and pure technique of #5 Demetrious Johnson, the current, and to date only, UFC Flyweight champion. Fascinating clash of styles here, so who advances?
