The UFC in no way has been shy about attempting to provide fireworks.
Typically, the promotion has preferred to near out the calendar year with a bang. (Despite the fact that a number of yrs, the way the dates fell, it intended setting up the new year with 1, as a substitute.) But the stage is, a huge shell out-for every-view generally was a little something fans could glance forward to all around the vacations.
The previous few years, the UFC has shifted away from these, and the final pay out-for each-see of the yr has been in the center of December. But we even now have reminiscences of individuals significant blowout functions from the previous.
In the spirit of the vacation year, this 12 months we’re supplying you our countdown of the best fights from the UFC’s previous year-end spend-for each-views. Just about every working day, come back again below and open up the proverbial doorway to come across out which fight is next on the checklist.
Disclaimer: Like all lists, these items are subjective. Probably Robbie Lawler vs. Carlos Condit was a definitely terrific and aggressive fight, but Amanda Nunes vs. Ronda Rousey was significantly from aggressive and just a mauling. When we say “best fights,” we also necessarily mean finest moments, so really don’t get way too hung up on Monday early morning quarterbacking. Just get pleasure from the look-back again.
