Now that we've gotten the Holidays (and the public drunkenness that accompanies it) out of our systems, it's time to return our attention to the age-old sport of grown men punching each other in the face.
Yes, the wonderful world of fisticuffs has brought us UFC Fight Night 20 from the Patriot Center in Fairfax, Virginia this Sunday, Jan. 10. What better way to erase the debt you ran up buying gifts that will most likely be returned or exchanged than by laying down some green on your favorite cage combatants?
Assuming you can pick fight winners, of course.
"Maynard vs. Diaz" has a lot of intriguing match-ups that may not be so easy to call. "The Bully" has been unstoppable since he graduated from The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) Season 5, going 6-0-1 since his Octagon debut in June 2007.
On paper that should make him a lock -- except for that pesky submission loss to Diaz that eliminated him from the Spike TV reality show. And you can bet that Diaz is hoping history will repeat itself.
It's certainly possible -- just like everything else in this sport -- and those who lay down some cheddar on the underdogs this weekend stand to make a healthy profit to start the New Year.
