MMA’s top three promotions, the UFC, Bellator and World Series Of Fighting all have event scheduled for another packed month of fights in February.
Saturday, February 1st: UFC 169: Barao Vs Faber II
Where: New Jersey, United States
The action gets underway this very evening from New Jersey with UFC 169 which features not one, but two title fights.
Fronting the show is a rematch between Renan Barao and Urijah Faber for the bantamweight strap, while Jose Aldo attempts to defend his featherweight belt against Ricardo Lamas. Throw Alistair Overeem Vs Frank Mir into the equation and you’ve got yourself a great night of fights.
Saturday, February 15th: UFC Fight Night 36: Machida Vs Mousasi
Where: Santa Catarina, Brazil
Lyoto Machida Vs Gegard Mousasi makes for a mouth-watering middleweight clash to headline UFC Fight Night 36 in a couple of weeks time in Brazil.
This could prove to be a very meaningful night for the 185lb weigh class as two other highly ranked fighters, Ronaldo ‘Jacare’ Souza and Francis Carmont lock horns in the co-main event.
Friday, February 21st: World Series Of Fighting
Where: Alberta, Canada
World Series Of Fighting spread their wings with an event in Canada this month.
So far details are thin on the ground with regards to the fight card, but a new Canadian welterweight title is expected to be up for grabs in the main event of the evening when Ryan Ford face Joel Powell.
Saturday, February 22nd: UFC 170: Rousey Vs McMann
Where: Las Vegas, United States
Only two months after her last Octagon outing, woman’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey returns to defend her title against another former Olympian medalist, Sara McMann.
Daniel Cormier’s light-heavyweight debut against Rashad Evans makes for a strong co-main event and Rory MacDonald Vs Demian Maia should be an intriguing welterweight battle too.
Friday, February 28th: Bellator 110: Rampage Vs M’Pumbu
Where: Connecticut, United States
The month is capped off by the return of Bellator for their 10th season which airs on Spike TV and they are set to kick things off with a four-man light-heavyweight tourmament.
Headlining will be one half of the bracket as Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson takes on former Bellator champ Christian M’Pumbu, while Muhammed ‘King Mo’ Lawal fights Mikhail Zayats in the co-main event.
