We are just a few days away from Jon Jones vs. Daniel Cormier II, and here in BE's Baddest, we are one step closer to Jones vs. Cormier III. Jones has already moved on to the Sweet 16, and now Cormier joins him. The #1 seed had no trouble dispatching #8 Matt Lindland, sending Team Quest to 0-2 already. Next week, we'll see how Team Quest OG Randy Couture fares.
Today, we get our first real tough call in the tournament. On one side, former Strikeforce, Elite XC, and Shooto champion, #3 seed Jake Shields. His opponent is the catch wrestling master, #6 Josh Barnett. Two very effective wrestlers, but also two men with very different styles. I'm looking forward to hearing your arguments on this one folks.
