Superbowl weekend usually brings with it a numbered PPV UFC card, stacked with talent, but the new owners have taken a different route and are also headed to the Lone Star State for a Fight Night card in Houston, Texas – the same city that's hosting the NFL Finale  24 hours later.

It has only been eight months but it feels like longer as the UFC finally returns to England, with Manchester hosting the first defence of its home town fighter, UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping. The night will be long as the action starts at 11pm but the price is small for the best card the UK has seen in many a year. Here's the best of the main card with odds provided courtesy of 5DimesLines.com.

With four months still to go, 2016 has already seen shocks aplenty in the world of MMA. Michael Bisping, Tyron Woodley, Amanda Nunes and Eddie Alavarez to name but a few of the championship bouts that have swung in favour of the underdog. But one of the biggest of the year was undoubtedly the fall of Conor McGregor. After the rematch was shelved from the UFC 200 main event it was pushed to UFC 202 and goes down this weekend.

The UFC stages its last event for three weeks as it heads to Ottawa, Canada on the run up to MMA's biggest week of 2016; UFC International Fight Week. Rory MacDonald fights for the first time in a year in his home country and faces the conqueror of Johny Hendricks in the main event, Stephen 'Wonderboy' Thompson. 

For the first time since May 2016 the UFC heads back to Brazil, as Cris 'Cyborg' Justino finally gets an opportunity to headline an event in her home town. As with many Fight Night cards this isn't stacked with stellar names but it does contain a few standout fights that wouldn't look out of place on a PPV. FO breaks down the top three for betting purposes with 5Dimes providing the odds.

UFC 200 is now in the history books and is visible only in the rear view mirror. It wasn't the stellar card that we all wanted and there has been controversy since but that's MMA for you. The card for UFC 201 isn't as stacked but it does contain some legit fighters, none more so that in the co-main and main events. I've broken down the top three fights on the card and 5Dimes have provided me with the odds.

The UFC heads to Inglewood, California for UFC 199. Once hailed as the card that nobody wants to be on (with UFC 200 on the horizon), Dana White and co. have managed to stack this one two title fights in addition to a bunch of other fun fights.
