MMAFrenzy’s Tournament of Upsets Final (with podcast)

We started with 32 upsets and now we are down to our final pairing. Both of the top seeds in the tournament made it to the finals with relative ease. The top-seed, Matt Serra vs. Georges St-Pierre, will face the second seed, Fedor Emelianenko vs. Fabricio Werdum, in the final. Both upsets rattled the MMA world and both featured a shocking finish. So, the question remains, which upset was bigger?

We judged the upsets on the basis of fight odds, skills, fighter ranks, and the surprise factor. We tried to minimize a hindsight bias by focusing on where these fighters were at in their careers at the time of the upsets rather than where they are now.

Voting will be open all weekend with the winner being announced Monday.

Be sure to check back with MMAFrenzy later today for a special edition podcast discussing the final two upsets and a completed bracket.
