Early picks of Upcoming events

It's the new year; 2012. Zuffa has a whole lot of events coming up and we are going to be spoiled this year by so many fights.

But the UFC/Strikeforce aren't the only games in town, as long as you're willing to keep an eye out for other events:Dream, Titan FC, Shark Fights, Pro Elite, ect, ect. So lets take a look at some upcoming events from both the major and minor promotions.

By the way, I'm writing this stuff because I don't have classes right now and need something to occupy my time, probably won't have time when the semester starts.
