If you thought the UFC might slow things down with the end of the year quickly approaching, then you'll be pleasantly surprised to see that they've done the exact opposite. Instead, the MMA promotion's last pay-per-view of the year, UFC 245, is a jam-packed event which includes three very exciting title fights that should interest MMA hardcores and casual fans alike.

The main event is a highly anticipated welterweight title bout between current champion, Kamaru Usman, and trash-talking bad boy, Colby Covington. It's been a heated build-up between the two 170lbers, with numerous verbal jabs and brief scuffles happening since Usman defeated Tyron Woodley for the belt. However, when the cage door is locked and both men are able to finally get their hands on each other, which one of them will go into the new decade as the king of the welterweights?

Alongside them, longtime UFC featherweight champion, Max Holloway, will be hoping to make it another successful defence of his 145lb belt, but has a tough challenge ahead of him in Alexander Volkanovski.

Lastly, women's bantamweight and featherweight titleholder, Amanda Nunes, will also look to continue her run of dominance in the women's division as she rematches esteemed striker, Germain de Randemie.

That's only the cherry on the cake of the night's main card fights. Let's take a look at the preliminary card...
