Vote now in the Bloody Elbow Baddest Tournament to determine the Greatest MMA Light Heavyweight of All Time. Today's match-up: #1 Jon Jones vs. #5 Ryan Bader. Vote now!

First Randy Couture losses, then Frank Shamrock. This tournament is no country for old men. The #3 seeded Shamrock fell and fell hard to #2 seed Quinton Jackson, losing by a score of 33-12. He’ll have to seek his redemption by outgrappling Kazushi Sakuraba in Rizin.

Today, a match-up I’ve been kind of dancing around this round, but why not - let’s do it. #1 Jon Jones vs. #5 Ryan Bader. Normally an overall #1 match-up in round 2 vs. a fighter he definitively beat in the real world would not provide any drama. But considering the fact that Babalu almost took out Jones last round and we’ve had more bad Jones news since - well, this will be an interesting one. Keep it civil folks.
