MMA Fights We’d Love to See in 2019

So, 2018 has come to an end and has delivered some incredible fights, but we didn’t see many titles defended and there could have been more action with the pairing of fighters. Anyway, it certainly was a gear year.

Now, in 2019, things are changing from the very beginning as the sport moves away from Fox and over to ESPN. Guess we’ll have to wait and see what that means as we might need to switch between ESPN channels to catch all the action before and after fights. However, there are many promises for the change as well, which is always great.

While the ESPN change is important and big news, we’re more interested in the fights that might just come our way in 2019. The line-up already looks promising and January 2019 already seems to have some action well worth looking out for. We’ve chosen a few pairing of our own that we’d really like to see in the year to come, not only for the action but the result as well. Check out the pairs below and see if you agree!

Conor vs. Nate Diaz

Considering all the advantages of this possible fight is sure to put a smile on your face, but the biggest advantage must be the way they bring the best out of each other. It’s almost as if both of them have a completely different style in comparison to other fights they take part in.

The interesting aspect of the fight would be the history for them. When you think about it, Diaz hasn’t stepped in the rink within the last 2 years and the fight against Conor was the last. McGregor, on the other hand, has become more of a whiskey spokesperson than anything else and he hasn’t managed a win within the last 2 years.

Both these fighters need the motivation, which doesn’t revolve around money or the titles, but rather the desire to fight. The great thing is, both of them have the right effect on the other, which is what we need for the 2019 season. It would certainly be great to see both of them at their peak as they take each other on.

Georges St-Pierre vs. Tony Woodley

While St-Pierre already made this an unlikely fight by saying he isn’t interested, it would still be a great one for 2019, and if MMA has taught us anything, it’s that things can change in the blink of an eye, sometimes it just takes a little motivation.

In fact, he might not even be returning to the rink at all, but again it’s all up in the air with great possibilities. If he does decide to step in again, it would certainly be a fighter worth keeping an eye on.

Having Georges and Tony go at it would be great as the best in welterweight would be taking on the one that’s trying to be the best. Both of them have great technique and certainly have what it takes to bring out the best in the other.
