The quarter finals continue on this week for our BE’s BADDEST Tournament Series to figure out what is the single Greatest MMA Fight Of All Time—that one bout to watch before the world ends. Today’s matchup will take place in the blue corner, and has the #1 seed, Dan Henderson vs. Shogun Rua 1, measuring up with the #5 ranked, Wanderlei Silva vs. Rampage Jackson 2.

Dan Henderson vs. Mauricio “Shogun” Rua 1 was an epic five-round war between two legends of the sport! There were lots of momentum swings in this one. Both men scrambled into dominant positions and rocked the other man, both men had to show off toughness and fight back, and both men had to dig deep keep going for 25 hellacious minutes. There is no question that these twomen left it all in the Octagon that night.

Wanderlei Silva vs. Quinton “Rampage” Jackson 2 was for PRIDE’s middleweight title and went down at PRIDE 28: High Octane back on Halloween of 2004. What a crazy scrap this was! Both men were throwing heat. Both men were getting rocked. In the end, Silva was able to put together a combination that staggered Rampage, before a vicious knee sent a limp Jackson falling through the ropes.
