Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports
With big title fights slated to end 2013, fights featuring guys like Lyoto Machida are flying well under-the-radar.

Jones vs. Gustafsson, GSP vs. Hendricks, Velasquez vs. Dos Santos, Silva vs. Weidman again—the UFC has giant title fights slated to close out 2013 in style.

But there are even more non-title fights with huge implications. 

While Jose Aldo will be defending his title against "The Korean Zombie" at UFC 163, Jake Ellenberger will settle his public spat with Rory MacDonald, with the winner most likely earning the next shot at the welterweight title. 

Daniel Cormier's feud with Roy Nelson has also been in the news lately and a contract has even been signed for a match between the two heavyweights. However, the implications of this fight are minuscule.

With so many title matches on the horizon for the remainder of this year's events, there are many fights that are flying under the radar.

Here's a look at a few fights that fans, and champions, should be keeping an eye on.
