To loosely borrow from the recently ousted Brock Lesnar - we're in Upset City baby. Our latest match-up was not just an upset, but a dominating one at that. #3 seed Chael Sonnen was no match at all for #6 seed Demian Maia, as Maia beat him by a very wide margin of 50-22. Big win for Maia there, but it also means he now goes up against #2 seed Jon Jones - not an easy fight for the Brazilian there at all.
Today, it's a 1 vs 8 match-up. Normally that would mean the result is not in doubt, but this tournament has been crazy, so who knows? Holding the #1 seed is Ben Askren - the overall #2 in the entire field of 32. He goes against #8 Josh Koscheck. Can Kos keep the upset streak alive? You decide.
