Spring 2020 became a very dark period for the world of sports. Planet paused due to quarantine, but quarantine is not eternal, and sooner or later it will отменtн. In the UFC say that they will be the first big League resumed its activities. And according to UFC President Dana white, the return of fighting left to wait very long.
Sport.ua is the top five fights for the belt that the promotion No. 1 in the field of MMA should hold the first place.
Israel Adesanya vs Paulo Costa
This fight could take place. In August last year, Costa won a unanimous decision in Yoel Romero and received right to challenge the UFC title in the Middleweight division. However, the long biceps injury knocked Costa out of the rut, so his place the applicant took the Romero, who in March at UFC 248 in a boring 25-minute match lost to the bearer of the title Adesanya.

Adesanya and Costa are waging a war on social media. Costa was named the champion of “skinny clown” and “the Last Steelbender” accused the Brazilian in the use of steroids. On paper we have a fantastic battle. Verified sniper work in the hotel Adesanya vs straight bulldozer Costa with his Muay Thai style. None of them had lost, and that means someone will have to part with the “0” in his record.
Henry Cejudo vs Peter Yang
Despite all the attempts of promotion to hold on may 9 event UFC 250, Henry Cejudo refused to defend his title in the easiest weight at this date. Originally he was supposed to fight at UFC 250 with josé Aldo, who lost the last two fights, but the Brazilian was replaced by not acting from 2016 Dominic Cruz.

Both candidates for back reasons has drawn criticism from fans because the zone Cejudo has a more legitimate contender. And it’s Peter Yang. The Russian drummer-destroyer at the end of last year destroyed the legend of the UFC Uryu Faber, knocking him out in the third round with a hard Hanekom. Looks like Ian in terms of Boxing qualities have no equal in the Bantamweight division.
But can it cope with a phenomenal wrestling Cejudo? The Olympic champion managed to knock down almost everyone they faced in the octagon, and judging by his fight with Marlon Moraes a, he has an iron will and its incredibly hard to stop, even when he’s shocked.
Alexander Volkanovski vs Chon Chan Dream
Max Holloway definitely deserves an immediate rematch with the current champion at Featherweight Volkanovski, however, Jung Chang’s Dream is perhaps the most popular fighter in the division, and he did enough to get a title shot.
“The Korean zombie” extremely successfully held in 2019. First, it is less than a minute, he knocked out Renato Moicano, and then also in the first round, finished a succession of punches ex-champion of UFC lightweight champion Frankie Edgar.
The battle between “Alexander the Great” and “Zombies” will surely become a fantastic sarubai. If the pressure and prudent “it seems” the Australian champion to break Chona and his iron chin?
Camara Ousmane vs Jorge Masvidal
Last year and for Usman and Masvidal was a breakthrough. Usman took the crown in the Welterweight division from the hands of Tyron Woodley, and then defended it, finishing Colby Covington. Masvidal scored knockouts Darren and Tilla Ben Askren, as well as finish Nate Diaz due to cuts.

Masvidal, as a contender, out of the competition after losing to Covington. In the UFC just have to give him a long-awaited title fight. Masvidal not lost in 2017 and is currently a fan favorite, plus he and Usman have long pioneered the promotion of the fight.
The only thing that may hinder the implementation of this great battle, in addition to coronavirus is Conor McGregor. Masvidal extremely interested in a fight with an Irishman, because this fight will fill up his Bank account for much more money than a fight with Usman.
Khabib Nurmagomedov vs Tony Ferguson
The fans have waited too long for this “cursed” battle that he could forget. Match of “eagle” and “El Cucuy” five times frustrated, but this fight is still one of the most desired by fans in MMA. Champion lightweight Nurmagomedov has the record amazing 12-0 in the UFC, and the main contender for his belt, Ferguson is in the octagon on a winning streak of 12 fights.
Habib predicting long laithwaite Kingdom in the UFC, many believe that he will hold the title as long as he wants. However, the Japanese champion has never met a fighter like Ferguson. Unorthodox fighting technique and an uncanny ability to adapt to any situation inside the octagon doing American those who are able to shock Nurmagomedov, and the whole world.
