The UFC championship scene still has a lot to offer in 2015, having already seen some seriously impressive title clashes headlining multiple doubleheader PPV (pay-per-view) events. Some highlights of the year so far include Weidman vs. Belfort, Cormier vs. Jones, Cormier vs. Johnson, McGregor vs. Mendes, Rousey vs. Correia and Velasquez vs. Werdum.
SO what’s left to offer? Just a few months back it was hard to envision what direction the top of each division was heading toward, but things have come full circle for the world’s largest MMA organization, as they often do. With a myriad of huge bookings hitting the headlines this month alone, the UFC will round out 2015 with another hot streak of title fights.
Chris Weidman and Luke Rockhold collide at UFC 194 in the co-main event, Jose Aldo and Conor McGregor will headline the card in a disruption of the usually weight-ranked order of championship bouts, lightweight boss Rafael Dos Anjos will make his first defense against old foe Donald Cerrone at UFC on FOX 17, and another rematch is on the cards between Fabricio Werdum and Cain Velasquez.
Robbie Lawler and Carlos Condit will square off in a highly anticipated welterweight championship burner at UFC 193, Daniel Cormier and Alexander Gustafsson have unfinished business with the 205-pound strap up for grabs at UFC 192, and there’s a likely trilogy-maker between Ronda Rousey and her rival Miesha Tate in the works, although that’s been left off the poll due to the fact it isn’t official yet.
So which upcoming UFC title fight are you most amped for?
