GIlbert Melendez came close. So tantalizingly close. But in the end, the #3 seed did not have enough to take out #1 seed Rafael dos Anjos, as dos Anjos took the victory by a slim margin, 32-28. With that, RDA takes the third spot in the Final Four, and earns himself a showdown with overall tournament top seed B.J. Penn.

Today, we wrap up the Elite 8, and determine our last Final Four fighter. On one side, it’s #1 seed Frankie Edgar. His opponent is #3 seed Nate Diaz – the only fighter to make the Elite 8 without holding one of the sport’s major titles. Can Diaz stop the clean sweep for the #1 fighters? You decide.
