He then is forced to forfeit the LW belt, which becomes the prize for the tournament.

Gray Maynard vs Spencer Fisher
Sean Sherk vs Clay Guida
Winner of Edgar/Franca vs Rich Clementi
(Kenny Florian and Roger Huerta automatically qualify for the semi finals since they were previously rumored to be fighting for the #1 contender spot)

One can only dream, I won't hold my breath.
"I don't want them to like me, because when I'm in the ring, punches fly to the face. It is not a tenderness time. I am not falling in love. And he knows that when the fight starts I kick faces."
"I think you should be able to kick in the head, itís a fun thing to do."
