The Top 5 UFC Breakout Fighters in 2014

Jeremy Botter@jeremybotterMMA Senior WriterOctober 14, 2013

2013 hasn't quite drawn to a close. However, as the nature of sports goes in general, we're always looking to the next big thing.

You want to know what's next, and I'm here to tell you.

The video you'll watch today is on five breakout fighters for 2014.

Right off the bat, let's get something straight: These are not prospects who will suddenly have a great year in 2014, though that might be the case with one or two of them.

No, what you'll see in this list are five guys who haven't been taking the world by storm. Five guys who aren't exactly superstars or household names right now in 2013, but will become so in 2014. 

Enough with the explanation. 2014 is going to be a big year for a lot of people in mixed martial arts, and the five fighters I've listed here today will have the biggest year of them all.
