March MMAdness: Barnett, Silva, Lesnar, Minotauro Make Elite 8


March MMAdness -- my make-believe 64-man openweight MMA tournament -- is down to the Elite 8. Results of Friday's four fights are below.

West Region
Josh Barnett beat Gabriel Gonzaga by second-round TKO (strikes)
Anderson Silva beat Quinton "Rampage" Jackson by third-round KO (knee)

Midwest Region
Brock Lesnar beat Junior "Cigano" dos Santos by unanimous decision
Antonio Rodrigo "Minotauro" Nogueira beat Semmy Schilt by first-round submission (triangle choke)

Those results give us the following regional final match-ups:

Josh Barnett vs. Anderson Silva
Brock Lesnar vs. Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira
Fedor Emelianenko vs. Randy Couture
Frank Mir vs. Lyoto Machida

By the end of the weekend, we'll have our Final Four.
