It all began with UFC Fight Night 34 at the beginning of the year and it continues with UFC 181 tonight (December 6, 2014) in Las Vegas, Nevada.

With five unanimous picks across the board on these 11 fights in total, the standings could be in for a slight shake-up following this event. Without further ado: UFC 181
