While 2018 may have gotten off to a slow start in terms of top-level MMA events, it’s certainly gaining steam as the calendar comes to a close.
With that in mind, for our latest Daily Debate for MMAjunkie Radio listeners and MMAjunkie Readers, we asked which event that’s currently scheduled before the end of the year are you anticipating most.
Is it “UFC 230: Cormier vs. Lewis,” with its unexpected headliner? How about “UFC 231: Holloway vs. Ortega,” featuring a pair of title fights, including an incredibly anticipated fight between two young studs?
Bellator has a landmark weekend planned out in the Pacific Ocean, with Bellator 212 and Bellator 213 taking place on back-to-back nights in Hawaii, a longtime hotbed of MMA that has been underserved by top promotions. Could that dual offering be the answer?
Or perhaps it’s the UFC’s year-end spectacular, “UFC 232: Jones vs. Gustafsson 2,” featuring the return of an embattled superstar in a long-awaited rematch.
Despite four solid offering from which to pick, nearly half of the votes came in on one card.
To hear the MMAjunkie Radio crew weigh in on the topic, and give a completely different set of answers, watch the video above.
