The year 2020 sure didn’t turn out the way anyone expected going in. But that meant we were all hit with a surprising group of mixed martial arts storylines.
Storylines such as:
Conor McGregor’s successful return, and his plans for a “season” getting thwarted
Stars like Jon Jones and Jorge Masvidal pushing back on the UFC’s pay structure
Khabib Nurmagomedov’s retirement
The UFC returning to action during the COVID-19 pandemic
UFC starts retiring and others moving on to Bellator and the PFL
What to make of all this? MMA Junkie’s own Mike Bohn and John Morgan have plenty of thoughts on the topic, which you can hear in the video above.
