Vote now in the Bloody Elbow Baddest Tournament to determine the Greatest MMA Lightweight of All Time. Today’s match-up: #4 Jens Pulver vs. #5 Conor McGregor. Vote now!
The nominations are in and the brackets are up and running. Which means it is time to get down to business and determine who is the greatest MMA Lightweight of all time. We do that by voting, and we’ll have roughly one vote every other day, starting right now. So take a look at the bracket and get excited for the mayhem to come.
Today, we kick things off with an interesting fight. The first ever UFC Lightweight champ vs. the current Lightweight champ. #4 Jens Pulver vs. #5 Conor McGregor. Decide who is the greatest, and vote away (one vote per person, duh). And as I said in the nomination thread, how you define greatness is intentionally a bit open. Is it who would win, prime vs. prime? Is it best contribution to the sport? How much does accounting for historical changes in the game factor in? Great questions all – use them to guide the debate.
Enough of that – let’s do this.
