MMA fans are perhaps the most in-touch fanbase in sports today. The early years made having the Internet a must for fans to keep up with the latest happenings in the MMA world.
The same notion holds true today as fans are constantly checking the front page of web sites like Bleacher Report each day. Looking for a major story each day doesn't typically involve too much searching as there's at least one hot item each day in the MMA world.
2012 was full of stories that created a wide range of emotions in fans. Some made us laugh, others upset, and a few made us look at the screen and pull a double check to make sure of what we just read. The stories on this list could be found on the front page of nearly every MMA web site at some point in 2012 and were the most talked about by MMA fans worldwide.
