The UFC is one-third of the way through 2014, and we have already been treated to a healthy dose of MMA. There are still eight months left on the calendar, and that gives the UFC plenty more big fights to deliver to our screens.
The loss of GSP and Anderson Silva hurt the star power of the sport, but other figures are trying to fill the gaps. There was a small glimmer of hope that GSP would return by year's end, but another knee injury will keep him out of action indefinitely.
There are still plenty of big fights to be had, and we take a look at 10 of those here. We tried to keep the matches realistic. Do not expect to see Brock Lesnar crack the list, although his return would be the biggest thing the UFC could hope for.
Fighters outside of the organization, rankings, scheduling issues and injuries will keep some of the big matches off of the table until at least 2015.
With a big roster full of talent, here are 11 of the biggest fights the UFC should make to end the year.
