5 of February’s best fights from UFC, Bellator, ONE Championship
Five best MMA fights to look forward to in February.
If January was too boring a month for you MMA fans, don’t worry, we got you.
While Bellator, Eagle FC and the UFC all had shows to kick off the year, it wasn’t exactly a busy month for cards and fights. We used to have half a dozen maps to look at per month these days. January was a little empty with these expectations.
Things pick up considerably in February. Eagle FC is running another map, albeit in Russia. Bellator is back with two more, UFC has four, ONE Championship and Rizin are also back in action, and these are just a few of the biggest companies hosting fights.
With all of these brands returning for the new year, it means the brand is fighting to keep an eye out. We don’t blame you for missing some of their announcements. That’s why we’re here, to help you fill your monthly agenda, because we’re going to tell you the five fights not to miss in February.
That says two honorable mentions.
The main event of Bellator 274 will feature two of Bellator’s best, as Neiman Gracie takes on Logan Storely. Storely is 7-1 in his eight fights against Bellator and is looking to get another shot at welterweight champion Yaroslav Amosov; the same man who broke his unbeaten streak. Gracie, the next in line for the Gracie Dynasty legacy, hopes to shoot Amosov himself, but his recent 2-2 record doesn’t wow matchmakers.
The winner of this fight will likely get a chance against the champion in the near future and fans will want to see this contest; especially if grappling is your jam.
Another fight taking place in February that could have title implications is Derrick Lewis and Tai Tuivasa’s fight at UFC 271. The co-main event will feature two of the top 10 heavyweight fighters, in a division that is oddly wide open due to the drama surrounding Francis Nganou. and UFC brass.
The winner may simply be in line for an interim title, or possibly, a spot in any potential vacant title fight.
