UFC lived through a wild 2020, but undoubtedly delivered impressive knockouts and three new champions who exploded the year in the MMA. Jan Blachowicz, Petr Yan and Deiveson Figueiredo They are the three fighters who were able to hang their belts this season, giving something to talk about week after week. Each of them knew how to do things properly and for that reason they established themselves at the top of their divisions.
Of course, the three have different strategies and techniques, but if there is something that unites them, it is precisely the hunger for glory and the desire to be the one who leads the category for a long time. The three achieved the maximum victory with spectacular images, knocking out or subduing their opponents. They are on a list of the top ten mixed martial artists of the year and they want to do the same in 2020.
The Polish Jan Blachowicz He had an impressive performance at UFC 253, where he knocked out Dominick Reyes and established himself. Now, he himself is the new champion of the Semi-Complete Weights, putting in his body the belt that Jon Jones had vacated. The latter went to the Heavyweight, so the title was free. Thus, the new leader of the category challenged him to go back to look for what belonged to him. For the moment, he would have agreed a fight against Israel Adesanya, champion of the Middle Weights.
After being crowned the new Bantamweight champion, Petr Yan he was going to have his first defense at UFC 256. The Russian knocked out the experienced Jose Aldo and hung up his belt for the first time, so now he’s thinking about what’s next. He was going to face Aljamain Sterling, but he got off and waits to find out when he will have his next match. He clearly deserves the title so it will be difficult to have it taken from him.
After the tie with Brandon Moreno occurred at UFC 256, Deiveson Figueiredo made his second defense of the belt. It was clearly one of the best battles of the year, so automatically fans called for the return. Therefore, both will face each other in a second chance in 2021. It should be noted that the title was hanged after submitting Benavídez twice.
