Updated List of the UFC Hall of Famers and Recent Champions

Gone are the days that men – both young and old – are much fascinated by the flying, tumbling, and other exhibition stunts of so-called “wrestlers???, although they still exist and have some fans today. What catches the interest of many men today, especially the big boys, is the real wrestling competition, called Ultimate Fighting Championship or UFC. This is where you can witness most of the top-ranked fighters in this kind of sport battle head-to-head in a genuine wrestling arena, not one with “superficial??? features. This where the blood you see on the wrestlers’ face and fist are real.

This February, fans have to watch out for the much-awaited combat between Renan Barao and Urijah Faber at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey. It will be followed by the exciting arena match between the two wrestling divas, Ronda Rousey and Sarah McMann at the Events Center of the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, Nevada. Other UFC battles in the succeeding months will be between Johny Hendricks and Robbie Lawler (March 15), Fabricio Wedum and Travis Browne (April 19), and Jon Jones and Glover Teixeira (April 26).
