You have to give it up for Michael Chandler. The #7 seed put in a heroic effort, coming very close to scoring the massive upset and taking out #2 seed Tony Ferguson, but alas, it was not to be. Ferguson took the win 31-26. He moves on to a Sweet 16 battle with Nate Diaz. You scared homie?
Today, we wrap up the opening round. Closing the show here is another #1 vs. #8 battle. This time, it’s former UFC champion and #1 seed Rafael dos Anjos taking on former WEC champion and #8 seed Jamie Varner. So far the #1 seed battles have been total blow-outs – does Varner have it in him to make this a fight?
