Vote now in the Bloody Elbow Baddest Tournament to determine the Greatest MMA Light Heavyweight of All Time. Today’s match-up: #1 Shogun Rua vs. #5 Forrest Griffin. Vote now!
Kazushi Sakuraba, the #1 fighter in the world in 2000, and the man who led Pride to unparalleled heights in MMA has been eliminated. Truly it is a day of national mourning. The #6 seeded Gracie Hunter fell to #2 Tito Ortiz, 33-17. Weep with me Pride fans. Ortiz now moves on to a clash with the vulnerable #1 seed Jon Jones.
Today, our final fight of the round, and a real world rubber match. Mauricio Rua and Forrest Griffin are 1-1 in the UFC – now one of them settles the rivalry. The #5 seeded Griffin has pulled off one upset so far, but he’ll need a lot to take out the #1 ranked Shogun.
