There will be no shortage of UFC cards in 2012, and to begin the year with a bang, the UFC is hosting three events, including two free cards in the first month.
The first event will be UFC 142, which will be available on pay-per-view and feature UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo putting his title on the line against former NCAA Division I wrestler Chad Mendes. It will be the UFC's third trip to Brazil and second since last August.
The two free events will be broadcast live on FX and Fox with the first being headlined by lightweights Melvin Guillard and Jim Miller.
UFC on Fox 2 will be the best yet and showcase three fights, including a couple top contender matchups in three divisions.
These are the top 10 can't miss fights of the month.
