With the UFC calendar officially kicking off on Saturday with New Hampshire native Calvin Kattar in the main event, it's time for another Granite Stater to finish his look back on the year that was.

Joined by Paul Fontaine of this website and Fight Game Media, this is the fourth and final part of our four episode look back at MMA in 2020, focusing on October through December.

Among the lengthy headlines we discussed:

  • A tale of two October retirements: Khabib Nurmagomedov and Anderson Silva
  • Did the UFC botch the final few years of Silva's career?
  • A November to not remember as seven UFC main events got changed due to COVID-19, injuries or visa issues
  • Deiveson Figueiredo making history with two title defenses in less than two months including one Fight of the Year candidate against Brandon Moreno
  • The will they/won't they road to Conor McGregor vs. Dustin Poirier II
  • The rise of some new faces and the exit of some old ones
