Most Heated MMA Rivalries of 2013
Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Spor

Rivalries breed some of the best action in sports.

Rivalry weekend in college football is one of the highlights of the year. Basketball has Tobacco Road. The divisional rivalries in the NFL, NBA and MLB bring out the best, and worst, in the players. Rivalries enhance the intensity of the action.

MMA takes that to another level. Why? Because, if all things go as planned, you get to punch your rival in the face.

Furthermore, the rise of social media has taken rivalries to yet a whole another level. Fighters tweet, post to Facebook and upload videos to YouTube to take potshots at their rivals.

2013 supplied many great memories both in and out of the cage.
