In our most recent bout which was tallied Thursday night, we ended up with a near upset, that ultimately ended in a tie of 19 to 19. The tie-breaker tournament bout just wrapped up awhile ago and the red corner’s #2 ranked, Israel Adesanya vs. Kelvin Gastelum, was in yet another epic nail biter with the #7 seed, T.J. Dillashaw vs. Dominick Cruz. When the dust had settled, it was Adesanya vs. Gastelum that edged out the win with a score of 31 to 25 this time around. Izzy vs. Kelvin now advances in the tournament to face #1 Robbie Lawler vs. Rory MacDonald 2 in the next round.
We will be bouncing back to the blue corner for next week's first matchup in our BE’s BADDEST Tournament Series to figure out what is the single Greatest MMA Fight Of All Time — that one to watch before the world ends. Sunday night’s brawl will start at 10pm CST, April 5th and will feature the #2 seed Frankie Edgar vs. Gray Maynard 2 and the #7 ranked Paulo Costa vs. Yoel Romero.
