The Road Back Starts in Abu Dhabi (UFC Fight Night 39 Review)

The UFC is loaded with fighters that have seen success only to watch it fall away with a single fight. That is just the fight game as it is rarely about what a fighter has done in the past and rather about their last fight. Fighters can spend long careers building up impressive winning streaks only to lose the fight that would give them a championship fight. Some fighters take a long time to get that championship fight and many times their entire careers are spent trying to build up to a title fight only to come up just short of earning the fight.

The UFC continues to move around the world at a rapid pace this year in their goal to touch as many places as they can throughout 2014. This time they will return to Abu Dhabi for their third fight on UFC Fight Pass and their second fight in the city. In 2010 Abu Dhabi was the emerging super city that was surpassing Las Vegas on the world map as the place to go to do anything you could dream of and now it has been that place for years. So the UFC is a natural fit in Sin City 2.0 as they once again travel to the desert for another fight.

New Year, New Opportunities (UFC Fight Night 34 Review)

The UFC would kick off 2014 with their first fight in Southeast Asia as a new year marks a new opportunity for the UFC and for fighters in the UFC. Unlike many sports the UFC does not have a season as they run year by year and so when a new year comes along it marks an unofficial new start for many fighters. The year will begin a year for some fighters to try and make an impression and will give plenty of opportunities.

The UFC will travel to Singapore on January 4th in the first fight of the year and the first of many that is not timed for North America. The UFC is looking at 2014 with eyes wide open about how they can continue to grow the sport.
