June M. Williams

In a result that was no surprise at all, #1 seed Jose Aldo has claimed his spot in the Elite 8. He defeated #4 seed Carlos Condit with ease, sending the Natural Born Killer packing. Aldo has not easily handled both opponents in our tournament, emerging as a favorite. Next up for Aldo? Well, that's what today is all about.

Today's match-up will determine the next challenger to Aldo. And no matter how this one plays out, it will be one of Aldo's countrymen. In another of this tournament's many Brazil vs Brazil matches, today we have #2 seed Junior dos Santos vs. #3 seed Shogun Rua. Two violent, powerful fighters, two former UFC champions, but only one will advance. Your votes decide which one.
