Our second #1 seed is through to the next round. This time, it was Demian Maia moving on. Maia had no troubles at all taking out Vitor Shaolin Ribeiro. Final score: 64-4. Domination. Maia now will take on the Imanari vs. Newton winner in the tournament's most ridiculously stacked bracket.

Today is a very interesting style clash. Old school jiu jitsu meets catch wrestling in this one with #4 Rickson Gracie vs. #5 Josh Barnett. Rickson by armbar? Or can Barnett's pro-wrestling style win the day? Your votes decide the winner.
