Even after nearly fifteen years of mainstream history, the sport of mixed martial arts really took off in 2007. We will look back in fifteen more years from now and see 2007 as the year where MMA finally became accepted into the mainstream and finally took of as a legitimate big-time sport, forever replacing boxing as the top combat sport in the world. In this year where there were eight free UFC events on Spike TV in the US, the lower weight classes also took center stage; legend Randy Couture resigned from the UFC amid intense speculation; Chuck Liddell took a nosedive, losing not only his belt but two straight fights; PRIDE was sold to the owners of the UFC; two fighters died, one as a result of action in the ring; and lightweight champion Sean Sherk was stripped of his title after testing positive for steroids.

There are so many things that I tried to fit into this column, and I did the best I could to sum up the biggest fights and review the biggest stories of the year.

Well, here is the Year in Review column that I wrote for CPC Movies. It was actually written about two weeks ago, but it just got posted. Some of the info was time sensitive, and doesn't apply as much now, but all of the review content is still there. Hope you enjoy!
