Fantastic discussion in our last battle, as #2 seed Jon Jones had a tough back and forth battle with #6 Demian Maia. Maia gave him a run, but it wasn't enough, as Jones took home the victory, 65-45. He now faces his real world rival Daniel Cormier for a spot in the Final Four.

Today, it's a match-up I'm super excited for - the highly anticipated BE's Baddest rematch between #2 Demetrious Johnson and #7 Dominick Cruz. For those that missed the backstory here, Johnson and Cruz squared off in round 1, with Mighty Mouse taking the win by just one vote, 43-42. But when Mark Kerr and Sean Sherk tied, Cruz was entered into a wild card spot. He won that and moved onto the second round, where, as fate would have it, he once again squares off against Johnson. Can the Cruz supporters sway things this time, or is this a repeat of what we saw already? I can't wait to find out.
