Not since Billy Chapman hacked and slashed his way through the holidays have we seen this much gratuitous violence on Christmas Eve, so let’s give a big ho-ho-holy shit to the folks at FOX Sports 1 for stuffing our collective stockings with MMA cheer.

I’m talking, of course, about the Francis Ngannou vs. Alistair Overeem fight, which ended by way of “Predator” death punch, one of select UFC 218 pay-per-view (PPV) bouts that will air (for free) on Dec. 24 at 10 p.m. ET, according to MMA Fighting.

Fight fans will also get to rewatch UFC featherweight champion Max Holloway’s destruction of former kingpin Jose Aldo, along with ex-lightweight titleholder Eddie Alvarez’s insane win over 155-pound lunatic Justin Gaethje.

Sure beats that dopey yule log on channel 11.
