UFC Heavyweight 16-Man Tourney:  Championship

We will poll each fight individually, for 1 day, beginning with opening round Match #1.  MMA Mania has the most knowledgeable MMA online community, so please feel free to post your pick in the comments along with your analysis of how you see the fights breaking down.  Hopefully this will give us something to do on slow news days.

It was extremely hard to come up with seeding for this tourney as Cain, Shane, and Jr all have a good argument for the #2 seed.  For that reason, I put the 3 names in a hat and drew for seeds 2-4.  For the rest of the seedings, I utilized multiple MMA rankings, while also taking styles into consideration.

***NOTE***  In the event of a tie, a randomly selected Maniac will act as the tie breaker.  That Maniac will be the 1st person to write a comment in the post thread.  So if you are the 1st to post a comment, make sure to include which fighter you voted for!!!!

SF #2:  This one didn't disappoint.  It came write down to the wire, and in the end, only 6 votes separated these to monster HWs.  After the smoke cleared, it was Shane Carwin standing victorious with 52% of the vote. We are now treated to another fantastic showdown between Shane and Cain....

Championship:  Well, the time has finally come...  Both Cain and Carwin faced heavy opposition in route to the championship match, and they now find themselves only 1 win away from the gold.  This supermatch breaks down like this.  Shane has the size and power.  Cain Has the quickness and Cardio.  Whatever Shane touches he destroys.  Whenever Cain gets on top of you, its nonstop GNP.  So enough build up, lets crown the new champ...

So lets hear it Maniacs.  Will be the new champ?  You decide.
