Voting has slowed and I'm not going to be around tomorrow night so I'm going to count the votes now and make the semis...most of those were blowouts but oh well, hopefully this round is more evenly matched. I will try and count in three days.

Semi Finals:
Polar Bear vs Gorilla
Hippo vs Rhino

Polar Bear via TKO over Gorilla(Ground and pound) - I have to make it clear that a gorilla is going to have a massive strength disadvantage. He'll have explosiveness and power to rival and even surpass the bear, but he doesnt have the lower body strength that the Bear does.
Eventually that coca cola loving bear would weather the early storm from whatever the gorilla through at him, and keep the pressure until the gorilla sokoudjou's and the Gorilla Luis Cane's him.
Its only a matter of time before the gorilla leaves his hands down and the bear lands with his reach advantage.
The gorilla is about 500 pounds(at best) he cant take a 1000 lbs left rake to the face.

Rhino via Decision over Hippo - I debated with this one, but the hippo's niche is usually his power and the momentum his hungry hungry ass can bring to a fight. In this fight, his opponent excels at the same thing, except his blind ass has armor and a portable mortal kombat fatality on his face.
If these two wrestlers charge and clinch up with each other, the Rhino's going to damage him too much on the inside and win the rounds. His Clinch striking is way higher than "Hippo", and if hippo cant get to ground and pounding you, he aint going to win the fight.

Here is a vid of a hippo and a rhino getting into a bit of a scrap.

If you are going to pick fights well, you gotta watch the vids.

Polar Bear
Rhino

This was the same exact match up from my home town radio station's animal grand prix that they did.

Polar Bear beats Gorilla (Bear has the strength, claws, and teeth, as well as super thick skin)
Rhino beat Hippo (Hippo is not agile enough to avoid the Rhino's horn [do Rhinos actually attack with this horn like I believe they do?] and Hippo lacks the tools to do damage to such a large and armored foe)
