We are off and running with the latest BE's Baddest tournament, and already, we have our first member of the Sweet 16. #2 seed Jon Jones had no issues taking out his real-life (and theoretical) UFC 151 foe Dan Henderson by a score of 80-5. Sorry Hendo. Jones will take on the winner of Demian Maia vs. Chael Sonnen next time - perhaps a UFC 159 rematch is coming? Time will tell.
With Jones already advancing, let's turn the spotlight to the other half of our upcoming UFC 200 main event: Daniel Cormier. Here, the #1 seed Cormier takes on the #8 Matt Lindland. Interestingly, Cormier and Jones are the 1 and 2 seeds in the same bracket, which means if the seeding all plays out, UFC 200 could be a preview of one of our Elite 8 fights. But first things first, and Cormier vs. Lindland - vote now to see who moves on there.
