The month of October started with a bang as newly-minted UFC middleweight champion, Israel Adesanya, brutally knocked out former title-holder Robert Whittaker with a crushing left hook. However, if you thought that the violence for this month ended after that, then you'd be very, very wrong.
In fact, this month looks like it's going to be an incredible time for combat sports, as some of the finest competitors step into the Octagon in hope of increasing their standing and getting closer to that ever elusive title shot.
Former UFC strawweight champion, Joanna Jędrzejczyk, takes on Michelle Waterson in a battle that could decide who takes on Weili Zhang next, Ben Askren and Demian Maia will compete to see who the most dominant grappler in the UFC's welterweight division is, plus there's a spectacular light-heavyweight bout between Chris Weidman and Dominick Reyes which is sure to be filled with fireworks.
We've only scratched the surface with some of these exciting match-ups and there's more for us to preview for you. So get yourself comfortable and ready, because there's plenty of MMA action coming your way.
