After the absolutely incredible fight year that was 2021, 2022 is promising to be bigger, better and badder than ever before in the UFC.
There will be title fights, shocking upsets, incredible wars and new rivalries created throughout the year, but there are some that already spilling over from this year.
With that, we’re going to name you ten fights that the UFC should make in 2022 at some point to give the fans the ultimate fight experience.
Kicking off our fights to see in 2022, it’s one that we’ve already pretty much had guaranteed is going to happen next at the top of the lightweight division.
That title is held by Charles ‘Du Bronx’ Oliveira, after he submitted Dustin Poirier at UFC 269 the following month in order to ensure that he is seen as ‘the man’ at 155-pounds.
This fight now is one that has got the entire MMA world on it’s feet, waiting for a date to be announced so that we can all be glued to our television sets at home.
Much like both of their previous fights, this one is guaranteed to be an all-action bout that will be exciting no matter where it takes place.
Gaethje will almost certainly have the advantage on the feet and after seeing both Chandler and Poirier hurt Oliveira and dropped him with strikes in his two title fights, he will feel he can get the job done as he is the power puncher of the division.
Oliveira will be very aware of that and will take his own encouragement from watching Gaethje’s last undisputed title shot against Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 254, when he was dominated on the ground and submitted in the second round.
But this will once again be a fight between the two very best fighters in the world in their weight division, and there is nothing better than that for a fight fan.
At some point in 2022 this one will take place, and we can’t wait for it.
