Despite a lack of star power, February was a solid month for mixed martial arts. The Nate Marquardt-Wilson Gouveia and Nick Thompson-Paul Daley fights -- Sherdog.com’s top-ranked bouts for the month -- delivered the goods as far as all-out action between evenly matched opponents was concerned.

The signs for March are similar. Most of the sport’s top pound-for-pound talent will not return until summer, so guys like Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and Aleksander Emelianenko will get their chance to shine. With tough opponents like Keith Jardine and Ibragim Magomedov in their way, fans are guaranteed competitive matchups.

I like that Sherdog included the Imanari vs. Atsushi Yamamoto fight. It's going to be exciting, and should Imanari win (which I think he will) it may set up an odd fight between Imanari and Atsushi's older brother that comes with the high probability of the winner taking the entire tournament. Probably the fight I want to see the most this month outside of Carwin vs. Gonzaga.

Props to Sherdog for not loading up on UFC fights.

hmm i'm no ufc nuthugger by any means but gonzaga-carwin should have been on that list.. that has potential to be a great fight, barring the fight goes past the first 3 minutes

Sounds dumb but I'm excited for Pete Sell vs Matt Brown. Big stand up war.
