As 2019 begins to come to a close, there is a lot of positives to look back on for fans of the UFC. Fights like Gastelum vs. Adesanya, Garbrandt vs. Munhoz, Holloway vs. Poirier, Romero vs. Costa, and the BMF battle between Nate Diaz and Jorge Masvidal all stand out for various reasons, and the current landscape of the UFC suggests that 2020 could be a truly special year for the organisation.
The stars of 2019 are all gearing up for some huge fights in 2020, yet there's also the ominous shadow of Conor McGregor looming large over the UFC. Having not competed since losing to Khabib Nurmagomedov at October 2018's UFC 229, Notorious is all set to return to the Octagon next year. And love him or hate him, it's hard to argue that Conor doesn't bring plentiful eyes and dollars to the Ultimate Fighting Championship.
Over the decades, there have been many standout years for the UFC, and 2020 could prove to be another should Dana White work his magic and serve up the fights fans are clamouring to see.
Here are ten fights that the UFC should be going all out to make happen next year.
