Top Five Fighters to look out for in 2018:

1. Conor McGregor

The Irishmen whose nickname "Notorious" goes aptly with his personality. Known more for his off-field antics and aggressive press conferences, McGregor is best selling product UFC possesses. Along with being brash, he backs his talk in the Octagon with his exemplary skills.

2. Max Holloway

Hawaiin fighter is just 25 years of age and has already defeated the most decorated Featherweight in history twice. He achieved that feat by stopping Jose Aldo twice. With an unprecedented 11-fight winning streak that has seen him rise in fame and name, Holloway is on the verge of super-stardom.

3. Khabib Nurmagomedov

Dagestani Khabib is known as "The Eagle" but has made his name by mauling his opponents in the UFC. He has an unparalleled record of 25 wins and no losses. It's hard to remember if he ever even lost a round.

4. Daniel Cormier

Light Heavyweight Champions Daniel Cormier used to be the captain of American Olympic Team and only missed out on a medal. He took that as an impetus in life and has smashed through his opponents to capture UFC Light Heavyweight Title.

5. Yoel Romero

A winner of Silver Medal in 2000 Olympics in Freestyle Wrestling, Yoel Romero is a specimen to look at even at the age of 40. The Cuban defies his age as he still vows to capture UFC Middleweight Title.

Former WWE Star CM Punk's attempt to fight in UFC might not just stay a one-off, as he is rumoured to be in talks to fight again in UFC 226 in his hometown of Chicago.

Floyd Mayweather stays in combat sports news even after retiring for the "final" time after beating Conor McGregor in a Boxing match in August 2017. He posts clips and snippets of him being in a cage and keeps teasing fans of his return.

Finally, former UFC Women's Bantamweight Title holder Ronda Rousey switched over to WWE.
