JNPO: The UFC 24-for-26 gauntlet, pt. 1

From the first week of September through the first week of March, the UFC ran 24 shows in 26 weeks, a dizzying pace that saw new champions crowned, young fighters emerging, and a few veterans still holding on for dear life.

In this two parter, your fearless host is joined by Spencer Kyte (The Province, UFC.com, Sporting News) to go through each show and pick out one thing that stood out: a fight, a storyline, a loss, or simply a moment. If you're an MMA geek like us, you'll enjoy this refresher on some of the things you might have forgotten about already.

This first show covers UFC Rotterdam (September 2nd) through UFC 219 (December 30th). A preview of what happened in that stretch:

- Demetrious Johnson's ridiculous submission on Ray Borg

- The memorable Jessica Andrade vs. Claudia Gadelha brawl

- The Brian Ortega victory that set him up for bigger things

- The roaring elbow from hell...and more!

Enjoy part 1 now and part 2 on Wednesday.
