The first year of a landmark deal between the UFC and FOX Sports Media Group, the cancellation of UFC 151 and all of its unseemly aftermath, two scrapped Strikeforce events and its projected demise, Alistair Overeem and Nick Diaz's drug follies, and Ronda Rousey and women's MMA's meteoric rise will be among the headlines that defined 2012.

There were other stories that spoke to the sport's evolving identity in 2012. MMA fighters were interpreted through artistic visions, recognized by advocacy groups (in a good way), and shared personal experiences that humanized a sport in need of it. Barbara Walters had her list and I have mine: the 10 most intriguing people I came across in MMA this year.
