December is gonna be exciting

December is historically one of the best months of the year for MMA. Most promotions try to put on a big show to end the year. The last week of the year is especially interesting to me with KSW 41, ACB Moscow, UFC 219, and the two Rizin shows.

What December events and/or fights are you looking forward to the most?

Dec. 1 UFC TUF Finale
Dec. 1 Bellator 189
Dec. 2 UFC 218
Dec. 8 Invicta
Dec. 9 ONE
Dec. 9 ACB
Dec. 9 M1 Global
Dec. 9 Bellator 190
Dec. 9 UFC Fight Night
Dec. 15 Bellator 191
Dec. 16 Fight Nights Global
Dec. 16 UFC Fox
Dec. 23 ROAD
Dec. 23 KSW
Dec. 23 ACB
Dec. 29 Rizin
Dec. 30 UFC 219
Dec. 31 Rizin

UFC 218 is filled with great fights, UFC Fight Night has some good ones, Tony Johnson is one of the toughest opponents for Minakov outside the UFC, the FOX card is stacked, 219 looks good so far and the KSW and Rizin cards will most likely have some interesting fights announced in the next few weeks and the production and presentation of both promotions is top notch. On paper, its the most talent filled and exciting month of fights the UFC brought fans in 2017.

Some of the interesting December fights just from the first ten days of the month:

Honeycutt vs Lovato Jr.
Njokuani vs Kato
Spicely vs Meerschaert
Holloway vs Edgar
Overeem vs Ngannou
Cejudo vs Pettis
Alvarez vs Gaethje
Waterson vs Torres
Iaquinta vs Felder
Oliveira vs Medeiros
Klose vs Teymur
Maia vs Niedwied
Carvalho vs Sakara
Swanson vs Ortega
Knight vs Benitez
Sterling vs Yahya

Oh man Overeem v Ngannou...

There's a UFC event, every weekend, for the rest of the year.

Not a big kickboxing guy but I kinda wanna see this on Dec 1st

 

If Dillashaw vs Johnson at either weight does not happen next then Cruz vs Rivera winner can get a title shot.

Your screen name... is BOSS.

thanks!

Gonna be interesting if McCall and Horiguchi both win on 12/29, then they would meet in the semis on 12/31.

I'm sure Rizin has been negotiating with Kron and Aliakbari for NYE fights. Besides hoping they both fight on NYE I moreso want to see them fight worthy opponents and not journymen opponents with 10% chances to win.

Just don't know how many fighters Rizin can attract that can challenge Aliakbari.

UFC 218 main card is awesome! 

Edgar v Holloway will be a great fight: Max by UD

Reem v Ngannou will be brain damage all round: Ngannou by KO

Cejudo v Pettis should be fun: Cejudo by sub, R3

Eddie v Gaethje FOTY candidate: Eddie by UD

Tecia v Hottie will be a good looking scrap: Hottie by UD

Still almost a month away. Way to much can change before the cards actually happen.

And it has already started with Frankie getting injured

and now Dom is out.

Needs a conor mcgreggor fight.

Franky was the one interesting fight and now it is all over.

Damn... Cruz and Edgar were in two of the better fights.

Cyborg vs Holm was one of the most high level fights in WMMA history and that is not gonna happen either.

Oh well, we still have Alexander Emelianenko vs Virgil Zwiker in Akhmat to look forward to!

lol at this shit post from an 02er


join dates matter!

Mike Mazzulli told Ariel today on the MMA Hour that a UFC official told him Conor was set to headline the Dec. 30th card and now he was off the card.

Now whether or not the UFC was just trying to appease Mazzulli... I do not know.

So in total if the UFC official was being straight with Mazzulli... December has lost Cruz, Edgar, Cyborg vs Holm and Conor vs Tony.

BJ Penn Forever - So in total if the UFC official was being straight with Mazzulli... December has lost Cruz, Edgar, Cyborg vs Holm and Conor vs Tony.

And all in the space of less than one week. Fucks sake.
