UFC Fantasy Tournament: Heavyweight Division, Finals

Jessy MorrisAnalyst IMay 14, 2010

The semi-finals are now over and it's time to get down to some more serious business. The finals of the heavyweight tournament are here and it should be a great fight. First up, here are last week's results:

We saw two come from behind wins in the semi-finals as both Cain Velasquez and Roy Nelson took early leads until Frank Mir came back to win against Nelson by an 8-5 vote. As for Velasquez, he was eliminated by a razor sharp 7-6 vote by Junior Dos Santos.

Final Fight: Frank Mir vs Junior Dos Santos

Having both Mir and Dos Santos in the finals, some could say it was two upset wins. Mir didn't look good against Carwin while Nelson looked great against Struve. Cain Velasquez has always been a fan favorite and some thought him to be the best heavyweight, still he's now gone thanks to Dos Santos.

With that said, it sets up a great finale fight between Mir and Dos Santos.

Frank Mir may have looked bad against Shane Carwin, but so far who hasn't?

Frank Mir is a former heavyweight champion, he is one of the best heavyweight submission artists in MMA and has improved his strikes a lot since first coming to the UFC. He has put on weight and seems to be driven more then ever for a rematch with Brock Lesnar.

Junior Dos Santos is also driven, but driven to become champion. His dominant wins over the likes of Fabricio Werdum, Mirko Cro Cop and Gabriel Gonzaga have solidified him as one of the top dogs at heavyweight. He has fast hands with deadly KO power plus a ground game that is still secret.

Frank Mir and Junior Dos Santos bring well-rounded skills to the octagon, but only one fighter can reign supreme...so who wins the heavyweight tournament?
