Video: Top 5 UFC fights of 2013 so far, an ESPN countdown

With the halfway point of the year upon us and several fascinating mixed martial arts (MMA) contests already taking place, ESPN's "MMA Live Extra" breaks down the top-5 fights of 2013 so far.

Over six months of the calendar year have already flown by and the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), which is the world's premier mixed martial arts (MMA) organization, has put on 15 action-filled events for fans around the world to enjoy.

On those 15 cards, there have been brutal highlight reel knockouts, limb snapping submissions and numerous all-out wars.

With close to 200 fights taking place inside the Octagon so far this year, there has been no shortage of great fights. Narrowing a list down to the top five? That's a little bit more difficult.

On a recent edition of ESPN's "MMA Live Extra," host Todd Grisham along with analyst Brett Okamoto broke down what they believe to be the top-five fights of 2013 to date.

Watch the video above and let us know in the comments section if ESPN got the list right or if your list of the best UFC fights this year would be different.
