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. #8 Vladimir Matyushenko. Vote now!
Silva wins, Silva wins! In our latest first round fight, Silva defeated Silva. Oops, that’s too vague – the Silva that won is the long-reigning former champion from Brazil who is a striking machine and used to train at Chute Boxe. Much better. Silva now goes on to another all-Brazil match-up, this time taking on Lyoto Machida in the Sweet 16.
Today, we close out round 1, and we do it with a good old fashioned mugging. Probably. I mean, it’s MMA so anything can happen, right? Today, #1 Mauricio Rua, better known as Shogun, vs. #8 Vladimir Matyushenko, better (?) known as The Janitor. One moves on to claim the final round 2 spot.
