Our second tournament fight is done and the second fighter has moved on. This time, it was Jacare Souza joining Joe Lauzon in the Sweet 16. Jacare took a comfortable victory over Nate Diaz, 91-25. He now awaits a showdown with Fabricio Werdum, or potentially a second Diaz in a row in big brother Nick.
Today, it’s an all time dream MMA fight. If you were a hardcore fan in 2001, there is no way you were not craving this fight. #1 Kazushi Sakuraba vs. #8 Frank Shamrock. These two legends do battle for submission fighting glory. Which one joins the Sweet 16? As always, that is up to you.
