As 2019 comes to en end, UFC has been looking back at its best moments over the last decade via its “Decade in Review” series.
In the latest installment, the promotion looks back at a historic year that was 2016.
In that year, the promotion staged its monumental UFC 200 event which saw Amanda Nunes win her first-ever world title.
We also saw Max Holloway win the featherweight title, as well as as Michael Bisping realizing his UFC championship dreams.
That said, it’s safe to say 2016 belonged to Conor McGregor.
That year, “Notorious” took part in three of the biggest events in UFC history. It was also filled with several ups-and-downs.
At UFC 196, Nate Diaz defeated McGregor via submission in the welterweight division. Undeterred, “Notorious” dusted himself off.
A few months later, the two men rematched at UFC 202 which saw Conor defeat Nate to get some much-desired revenge in a highly-entertaining bout.
Three months after that, Conor knocked out Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205 to become the promotion’s first-ever dual champion.
Now, Conor is looking to have a bigger 2020, as he intends to fight three times this year.
Up first is a fight against Donald Cerrone at UFC 246 on Jan. 18. After that, he is eying a title fight against Khabib Nurmagomedov.
If all goes as planned, he wants to fight Jorge Masvidal for the “BMF” title to close out the year.
