The second half of 2022 is heating up a lot for the UFC. In the promotion, the champions unexpectedly retained their titles, major upsets and more drama than usual among star athletes in the first eight months of the year.

Perhaps the biggest disappointment of the year came in August when Leon Edwards shocked the world with a knockout to the head of boxing great Kamaru Usman in the last minute of their welterweight title fight. Edwards failed and was likely defeated in a rematch seven years in the making. But the thrilling finish stirred up both the welterweight and the Pound for Pound landscape.
