DALLAS (AP) – Time to bust out some bracketology UFC style.

Brandon Vera vs. Mauricio Rua stand on one side of the bracket. Ryan Bader vs. Lyoto Machida face off on the other line.

But the winners won’t fight each other.

In a UFC twist worthy of a reality show, the winning fighter with the most impressive performance – yes, he’ll have to wow the judges – advances to the championship round and becomes the No. 1 contender for the light heavyweight belt.

This fearsome foursome of a Final Four have more than just another victory at stake Saturday at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. The best of the best earns a shot at the winner of the Jon Jones vs. Dan Henderson 205-pound title bout on Sept. 1.
