The Top 5 Upcoming Fights

With most of the fights from my previous 'Top Coming Fights' installment having passed, this is a great time to update the list and take a look at the top 5 upcoming fights once again.

Although some of these match ups are going to be more anticipated then others, they are listed in no particular order and all should be great for fans. Let's get to it.
