It should be noted that the names you see representing each match-up do not reflect the original names in the nomination thread or the announcement of the Field of 64. That's because they needed to be shortened for headlines and URLs and all that other back end nonsense.
Don't worry, nothing has changed but a few names. Each match-up will feature video with a short description of each moment that occurred.
There you have it, Cagesiders. What match-up are you most looking forward to?
