The second round of our 32-fighter tournament picking the best champions in UFC history has wrapped up and the quarterfinals have arrived.
Few days ago, we took upon ourselves to ask on what could happen if we took the best champions in UFC history and matched them up, bracket style? Who would wind up the best champ of all time?
So with the NCAA Tournament’s Final Four upon us, we have decided to do a draw on who is your favorite UFC champions of all time.
Now this draw was done just when Ronda Rousey was still with us; in the eve of the quarterfinal round. Of course things went almost to plan – at least based on fighter seeding. We have three No. 1 vs. No. 2 matchups. The fourth is a No. 1 vs. No. 3 – thanks to a bit of an upset. Current heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic, beat inaugural women’s bantamweight champ Ronda Rousey to advance to a meeting with Jon Jones.
