The UFC did not put a title fight on display in the month of October, but that doesn't mean it will be a month soon forgotten after the final piece of candy is handed out on Halloween.
No, this month saw a number of fighters pick up important wins, thanks in large part to the willingness of Anderson Silva and Stephan Bonnar to step up and save UFC 153 from cancellation. Despite the loss of a featherweight title fight and a light heavyweight bout between Quinton Jackson and Glover Teixeira, that event actually turned out to be one of the deeper UFC fight cards of the year.
Outside of the cage, October also saw a number of blockbuster fights booked by UFC matchmakers.
Both inside and out of the Octagon, let's take a look at the biggest winners from the past month.
