Top 5 GIF highlights from a wild weekend in MMA

This past weekend in MMA brought us two of the best fights that 2014 has to offer. On Friday night, at Bellator 112, Pat Curran and Daniel Straus put on a show in their Featherweight title rubber match. The following night, at UFC 171, Johny Hendricks and Robbie Lawler brought down the house in an epic Welterweight title bout.

In the end, Curran walked away with an incredible 5th round submission win to regain his Featherweight title. Johny Hendricks sealed his unanimous decision victory over Lawler with a late takedown in the fifth and final round. Both fights were absolutely spectacular, and deserved to be #1 on this list.

Overall, it was a great weekend for MMA fans, and today I rundown the 5 best GIF highlights from this past weekend (h/t Zombie Prophet).
