10 Wild MMA Fights That You Need To Watch In December

It's going to be a December to remember, as the UFC end the year with plenty of high-level action.


If you thought the UFC had any intention of taking a break near the end of the year, then you'll be pleasantly surprised to learn that that is far from the case. The promotion are gifting fight fans an early Christmas present by putting on a number of potentially brilliant fights just before the holidays truly begin.

We've got an incredible headline bout between two former featherweight title challengers in Brian Ortega and Chan Sung Jung which is sure to provide plenty of near submissions and potentially devastating strikes. Both men are known for having incredibly exciting, back-and-forth battles inside the Octagon, but which fighter will be able to implement their gameplan and leave South Korea with the victory?

Along with that, we've got some power-punching heavyweights doing battle in a fight that is bound to end with a knockout, former champions and title contenders hoping to get another shot at the strap, plus some all-action fights that promise to be full of fireworks. So forget the pre-Christmas scraps outside your local pub this year, because the real fights are going to be on your TV instead.
