The UFC saw some of the best fighters perform across the months and here are the top five

The UFC had a few issues to deal with in 2020 thanks to the coronavirus. Many of the shows were postponed after a couple of months of the year and there were doubts that anything could be done before the second half of the year.

However, Dana White got Fight Island going and even held several events when all of the sporting world was down.

Who won the fight at UFC 254?

That saw some great fights take place in 2020, even though fans weren’t allowed in the arenas. This was a different atmosphere but we got a closer look at the thoughts of the coaches in the closed arenas.

Some fighters took this as a chance to show-off their skills and here are the top five fighters from the 2020 UFC year.

5) Kevin Holland

This was a banner year for Kevin Holland who accepted five fights in 2020 and won them all.

That’s right, when most fighters take up three fights at the most in a year, Holland was out to show that he just wants to fight.

The Trailblazer won four of his five fights via stoppages and also earned some viral knockouts too. Holland was keen on a sixth fight in the year too, and there would be very few who would have doubted him to get that win.
