The UFC is in need of stars but there may be a few that come out of UFC on FOX 24 with a lot of very good fighters taking on some big challenges and putting on some very important fights.
The Ultimate Fighter has been used to bring in great prospects for years but this time around it was used to try to find a challenger for the toughest title in the promotion.
The two top pound-for-pound fighters went into the octagon at UFC 197 looking to prevent the pattern of upsets that have dominated the UFC over the last year and a half.
Although the best pound-for-pound fighters don’t get to face each other UFC 197 will provide the opportunity to compare the top two in back-to-back fights.
UFC 191 was an exhibition of the two extremes of the sport as the last two fights represented two very different spectrums of the fight game.
The UFC is back on pay-per-view and once again they have stacked the card with great fights that are important to their respective divisions.
The Flyweight division is still an extremely young division in the UFC with only two fights between flyweights so far. These two fights were the Flyweight Tournament to determine the first ever flyweight champion of the UFC. The fights though only produced one potential champion as Joseph Benavidez won his match to earn a spot in the finals.
This year the UFC has made some massive moves from signing a massive deal with Fox to the addition of the Bantamweight and Featherweight. Next year the UFC looks to continue growing as after the latest event, UFC 140, Dana White announced that the UFC would be adding a Flyweight Division.
