Most anticipated MMA fights of 2017

There are so many great mma fights happening in the coming months of 2017! Here’s a list of a few I am very anxiously waiting for in hopes that they live up to their hype!


Eddie Alvarez VS. Dustin Poirier UFC 211 May 13, 2017

Coming off the devastating knock out loss to current champ Conor Mcgregor, Eddie Alvarez is looking to get back into the winning picture against the incredibly tough Dustin Poirier who is 5-1 since moving back up to lightweight.

The hard-hitting and super entertaining #2 and #3 ranked light heavyweights square off to potentially secure a number 1 contender spot and face the winner of Daniel Cormier vs Anthony Johnson for the light heavyweight championship.

Jose Aldo VS. Max Holloway UFC 212 June 3, 2017

Interim champ Max Holloway looks to unify the belts against the current champ Jose Aldo in what I’m hoping will be a stand-up war and could easily be the best mma fight of 2017!

Cody Garbrandt VS. TJ Dillashaw TBA

With both of these young and hungry fighters coaching the new season of The Ultimate Fighter, and quite a lot of beef between Dillashaw and Garbrandt, this impending fight is sure to be a fast-paced stand-up battle!


Rose Namajunas VS. Michelle Waterson  UFC on Fox 24 April 15, 2017

Rose Namajunas VS. Michelle Waterson

The female hype fight of 2017! Namajunas and Waterson look to establish themselves as the clear number 1 contender in a division dominated by the champ Joanna Jedrzejczyk. Both of these warriors are finishers and I cannot wait to see how this one plays out!


I hope you enjoyed this list and that most of these live up to the hype! What are some of your most anticipated MMA fights coming up? Leave a comment below!
