MMA Contenders and Pretenders That Will Be Revealed in August
Rafael Suanes-USA TODAY Sports

August is a stacked month for the UFC.

Things kick off on Saturday night with UFC 163. The main event features Jose Aldo defending his featherweight title against Chan Sung Jung, "The Korean Zombie."

However, that is only the beginning, with three more events in the month.

The highlight is the first event on Fox Sports 1. Chael Sonnen and Mauricio "Shogun" Rua will square off in a light heavyweight tilt in Boston boasting an undercard stacked with competitive and compelling fights.

UFC Fight Night 27 and UFC 164 close out the month. The title pictures will be rearranged: Some fighters will emerge as new contenders, while others will fall out of the discussion as they show themselves to be mere pretenders.

These are those men and women for the month of August.
