2014 was a rough year for UFC fans in two of the country’s biggest UFC hotbeds as they went the entire year without a fight.

A lot to Prove in Vegas (UFC 178 Review)

It has been the year of the upset in the UFC with some of the most dominant champions taking a back seat to the underdogs. Big names continue to fall and it seems that no matter who they face there is always a sense that their opponent can beat them. The biggest one so far was in the Bantamweight division where T.J. Dillashaw came out of seemingly nowhere to take on Renan Barao for the title. Dillashaw had been a good fighter but did not seem like he deserved a shot just yet but he walked into the octagon like he belonged against a champion that many were just assuming would beat him and wait for Dominick Cruz to get back

UFC 178 Preview

UFC 178 was going to be one of the biggest fights of the year for the promotion as it was the biggest rematch for the UFC.

Alexander Gustafsson was set to fight Jones in a rematch of what many considered to be the best fight of 2013. Then Gustafsson was hurt training leaving Jones to take on another top challenger in Daniel Cormier.

Dominance in BC (UFC 174 Review)

There is nothing more entertaining than a division that has plenty of turnover at the top of the division with any number of fighters having the possibility of winning the title. It makes the division much more entertaining when a champion goes into a title defence with a lot of doubt. That is not always the case in the UFC though as dominant champions are more common for the promotion. There are a number of divisions that have seen some dominant champions rule over the division and make it more about the question of who can beat the title holder rather than the amount of talent in the division.

UFC 174 Preview

The UFC continues to grow throughout the world as it reaches a plateau in North America and it seems like every year there is a new country getting in on the action. Whether it was the American fighters in the 1990s when the UFC started or the influx of Brazilians later in the decade. There has always been a country that seems to take over the UFC for at least a year if not more. That is happening once again as this year may be the time that Russian fighters take over the UFC.

Lighter is Sometimes Better (UFC on Fox 9 Review)

The UFC is constantly trying to add more fighters and more wrinkles to remain one of the most popular sports in the world. The strategy seems to be to continue to get lighter and lighter in the UFC as they continue to add lighter divisions to the stable of fighters. With the announcement of the Women’s Strawweight (115 lbs) division the UFC is once again looking at lighters fighters to continue providing great fights.
