Since today is my wife's birthday (Happy Birthday Sarah!), it means we have just ten days left until Christmas.
While I've circulated my list of desired presents to the people who need it, I'm sharing my MMA Wishlist with everyone at heavy.com. Instead of asking for a bunch of things that benefit me directly, I've gone with a more universal list this year, getting an early jump on my New Year's Resolution to be less selfish.
1. A Healthy Return for Georges St-Pierre, Anderson Silva and Brock Lesnar
Three of the five UFC champions are currently dealing with varying degrees of illness and injury, and a healthy return for this trio of talents is vital for the organization and the sport.
There really is a silver lining to every cloud.
While we’ve been faced with somewhat lacklustre cards and uninspiring main events lately and in the next couple of months, we’ve forged ahead since August without any of these three champions. Eventually, they will return and those star-studded cards with championship main events we’ve grown accustomed to will come back with them.
Get well soon – these and all the injured fighters out there.
In addition to checking out the rest of my wishlist, we want to know what you're wishing for from the world of Mixed Martial Arts this holiday season.
An Alistair Overeem title defense?
UFC on Network TV?
Let us know... and happy holidays!
