It was a #1 vs #8 battle, what can you expect? To the surprise of no one, overall top seed B.J. Penn ended up licking the blood of JZ Cavalcante, taking him out with a resounding score of 47-2. Penn moves on to a Sweet 16 showdown with another former UFC champ and a man he is 1-1 with in the real world – Jens Pulver.
Today, an interesting battle between two well-ranked fighters who never quite managed to cross that final hurdle and become the true top dog. It’s #4 Kenny Florian vs. #5 Joachim Hansen. One moves on to the Sweet 16, one sees his bid to be MMA’s Greatest Lightweight come to an early end.
