Two of the biggest draws are currently out of the picture. Anderson Silva will need a long, long recovery time, and GSP is going through problems no one understands.
They have been the two most recent, dominant champions of this time. Silva had become a MMA superstar on the level of MIchael Jordan, taking MMA to another plateau. GSP was one of the most respected and revered welterweight champions of all time.
Now that their futures are in doubt, who is left to keep things exciting in the UFC? Who will be the big draw of 2014?
Anthony Pettis is hurt, Cain Velasquez is hurt, Dominick Cruz is coming off a super long layoff after being injured.
Who is left to keep the buzz going? Who will have the most amazing highlight reel?
