Womens

Ronda walks through Carmouche. UFC eventually sets up the fight with Cyborg, meaning McCann has to fight twice, getting upset in the 2nd of those fights.

Flyweight

Mighty Mouse wins a close, but exciting back and forth fight against Dodson, and goes on to defend the belt once more near the end of 2013 against either Formiga or McCall.

Bantamweight

McDonald knocks out Barao, defends against Faber, and one of Wineland, Assuncao or Bowles. Cruz doesn't come back until 2014

Featherweight

Edgar-Aldo is an epic back and forth close fight, but ends with Frankie taking the belt. He defends against KZ, who flies through his next opponent, before a re-match with Aldo at the end of the year.

Lightweight

Benson Henderson holds the belt for the entirety of 2013, gaining wins over Cerrone (who dominates Pettis) and Jim MIller. BJ Penn returns to 155, claims new focus, back at best weight. Loses to Jim MIller.

Welterweight

GSP keeps the WW belt, and has a very active year. Shuts down Nick Diaz, who once again threatens retirement, before returning again at the end of the year; beats Johny Hendricks, the Tristar loyalty comes to an end, as Rory MacDonald decides he wants a shot at the belt after all, after beating Condit, and at the end of the year takes on Demian Maia.

Middleweight

Silva fights twice, wins both. Bisping surprises the haters by backing up his talk, and beating Vitor Belfort. Doesn't help him against Anderson though, who he gets smashed by. Anderson also wins a rematch against Okami, who shocks the division by grinding out Weidman.

Light Heavyweight

Jones continues his domination, easily beating Mr Sonnen, who, leaves the division with his tail between his legs, and calls out Wanderlei Silva, fighting him in Brazil at 195lbs. Jones also beats Machida in a re-match, who makes Dan Henderson look his age in their match, which results in Hendo's retirement, and induction into UFC Hall of Fame. Rashad loses next fight, leaves Blackzilians.

Heavyweight

Overeem smashes Big Foot, and sets up fight with Cain in the summer. Overeem again looks incredibly impressive, and takes the belt, which leads to the build up for a winter Overeem-JDS fight, with JDS coming in off the back of a win over Werdum. JDS reclaims the belt, and calls out Cain to complete the trilogy.
