Vote now in the Bloody Elbow Baddest Tournament to determine the Greatest MMA Lightweight of All Time. Today’s match-up: #2 Tony Ferguson vs. #7 Michael Chandler. Vote now!
The battle of Japan turned out to be a pretty uninspired affair. What would have been a clash for the ages a decade ago was instead a complete rout, as #3 Takanori Gomi rolled right over #6 Kid Yamamoto. Gomi now moves on to another all Japan battle against the #2 ranked Shinya Aoki – that one has to be good, right?
Today, with just a few fights left in the opening round, we pick up the pace to get us moving on to round 2. Here, it’s a UFC vs. Bellator clash as #2 seed Tony Ferguson faces #7 Michael Chandler, the current and two-time Bellator champion. Winner advances to the Sweet 16.
