Mouse and Creepy getting KO'd? Not a chance in hell. That would be 2 of the most impressive KOs of the year. Neither guy has ever been even close to KO'd that I can remember.

Benavidez dropped Mighty Mouse and Mighty Mouse dropped Uncle Creepy.

Then again, I'm like Dodson's only fan, so yanno.

Didn't Creepy drop Mouse in the 1st fight? Being dropped does not equal almost finished in my book. I don't recall either guy being "rocked" or "not all there" at any time. I could be wrong but I seem to remember them bouncing back quickly.

Heavyweight:

Overeem knocks out Bigfoot and gets his title shot. Cain loses his first title defense to Overeem, who loses to JDS at the end of the year - setting the stage for the biggest fight in UFC HW history - JDS vs Cain III

Light-heavyweight:

Chael gets a mysterious injury/suspension right before Jones vs Sonnen. Lyoto steps in and loses again. Gustafsson replaces Machida against Hendo and becomes the first man to knock out Henderson. Gustafsson then fights Bones and loses badly. Bones vs Silva or Bones moving to heavyweight becomes and inevitability.

Middleweight:

Bisping wins a hard fought decision against Vitor and finally gets his shot at Anderson. It doesn't go well. Weidman continues to tear through the rest of the division with remarkable ease, and earns a title shot at the end of the year. Weidman pulls a Sonnen by winning a few rounds, but eventually gets hit and goes down hard.

Welterweight:

Due to Diaz's personal demons GSP vs Diaz never materializes. Hendricks steps in and the fight is a fairly one-sided boring affair. Fitch lobbies for the next shot after beating Demian Maia, but is ignored. Meanwhile, Rory MacDonald humiliates one over-matched opponent after another, then decides to move camps and formally challenges GSP. The fight takes place in early 2014.

Lightweight:

To the dismay of many fans and fighters Melendez steps in against Bendo in sometime in the Spring. He loses. Pettis beats Cerrone in a controversial split decision, and earns the next shot. Gray Maynard fights Nathan Diaz to finish the trilogy. He fights dumb and gets Stockton slapped around the cage for 15 minutes.

Featherweight:

In one of the technical fights ever seen Edgar outboxes Aldo to claim UFC gold once again. No other obvious contenders emerge and a rematch happens in Brazil later in the year. Aldo wins the second match and a new epic trilogy is born. Other notables include Hacran Dias beating Chad Mendes and KZ destroying Hatsu Hioki.

Bantamweight:

Barao beats McDonald via submission in the interim title fight setting the stage for Cruz vs Barao. Unfortunately Cruz suffers another injury setback and is forced to retire from MMA. Faber beats Menjivar and another predictably boring fight between Barao and Faber happens, Barao again winning. Yuri Alcantara emerges as the next contender.

HW

Cain beats both Reem and Werdum easily, Werdum gives Cain the much better challenge of the two. JDS works his way back up quickly KO'ing Reem in the process.

LHW

Sonnen gets absolutely smoked by Jones. Cormier then clears out the LHW division with ease once he drops except for Jones. (I'm 50/50 on Cormier vs Jones for now)

MW

Silva trolls everyone thinking they actually stood a chance against him, as always.

WW

GSP steamrolls everyone he faces and wins, as always.

LW

Benson Henderson loses and also regains the belt.


FW

Aldo finishes Edgar in convincing fashion. Doesn't move up.

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.
