June M. Williams

In a battle of old-school UFC Heavyweight kings, it was The Natural who reigned supreme. Dan Severn and his mustache were no match for Randy Couture, who destroyed the sport's earliest dominating wrestler by a score of 33-5. Couture now moves on to face the winner of GSP vs. Jon Fitch.

Today, an interesting clash between two fighters who bring a lot of similarities to the table. It's #4 Frankie Edgar vs. #8 Rashad Evans. Both are former world champions with strong wrestling, and both also complemented their wrestling with an evolving striking game. Edgar had the easier path here, taking out Chris Weidman with no trouble, while Evans scored the massive upset over #1 Khabib Nurmagomedov. We'll see if his surprising run continues past round 2.
