January is coming to an end, and MMA has started off with a bang in 2014. In total, there were four major MMA events in January; the UFC held three events and World Series of Fighting held one event. All three of the UFC shows were free this month, including the UFC’s first event on Fight Pass. Ultimately, Fight Pass events will require a membership once March 1st rolls around. The other two UFC events were on Fox Sports 1 and FOX respectively. Overall, it was a solid month of fights on free television, and today I recap the 5 best fights in GIF form.
