March MMAdness: Could Dan Henderson Upset Fedor Emelianenko?


We're another day into March Madness, which means we're also another day into March MMAdness -- my own cockamamie idea for what would happen if we could have a 64-man open weight MMA tournament.

Today's fights include something for Pride fans (Fedor Emelianenko vs. Dan Henderson), something for lovers of Brazilian jiu jitsu (Fabricio Werdum vs. Demian Maia) and something for those interested in fascinating stylistic match-ups (Lyoto Machida vs. Cain Velasquez). Day 3 March MMAdness results are below.

East Region
1. Fedor Emelianenko beat 8. Dan Henderson by first-round submission (rear-naked choke)
5. Fabricio Werdum beat 13. Demian Maia by unanimous decision
3. Randy Couture beat 6. Ben Rothwell by second-round TKO (strikes)
2. Rashad Evans beat 7. Sergei Kharitonov by split decision

South Region
1. Frank Mir beat 8. Heath Herring by second-round submission (arm bar)
12. Antonio Rogerio Nogueira beat 13. Matt Hamill by first-round submission (guillotine)
