2013 promises to be a big year in MMA. As the sport continues to expand into the mainstream, big fights and events will dominate the sports world and bring us title bouts we constantly think of.
There are already several UFC title bouts scheduled for the first quarter of 2013. In fact, the next event, which ends 2012, hosts a heavyweight title bout between Junior dos Santos and Cain Velasquez, proving that title fights are just on the horizon.
Here is a schedule that UFC champions will potentially face in 2013.
Note: The women's bantamweight championship will not be explored, as there are only two women currently on the active roster.
