Did you shell out 45 dollars for that lackluster UFC 119 pay-per-view this past weekend? Are you feeling ripped off after watching Mir and Cro Cop hug each other for 14 minutes before one knee knocked out the has-been Pride champ? Are you kicking yourself viciously like Shogun kicked Machida because your hard earned cash went to a Bader lay-and-pray over Nogueira, and a bizarre three round slugfest between Serra and Lytle?

Well, if you did purchase the Mir vs. Cro Cop UFC then you definitely answered yes to all those questions. The bad news is the cable company has your money and there is no way you are getting it back. There is good news, however. Tonight’s WEC event on Versus is one of the best cards they have ever put out, and it costs a grand total of “free-99.” It may not completely take the sting out of your wasted money, but it’s a guaranteed night of good fights and it won’t cost you a cent, so it will go a long way towards cancelling out the rip off that was UFC 119.

For some reason August is one of those months that always seems to bring great fights in mixed martial arts. Last year we had Anderson Silva rip Forrest Griffin’s manhood away, BJ Penn silence all the doubters by destroying top contender Kenny Florian, and Todd Duffee set a UFC record with a 7 second knockout. 2008 brought us the fantastic fight card of UFC 87, which included Florian vs. Huerta, St. Pierre vs. Fitch, and the emergence of Brock Lesnar as he beat up Heath Herring. Even the year before was a great August in the UFC, with an exciting title defense from Randy Couture and the first installment of St. Pierre vs. Koscheck.

So I guess it comes as no surprise that this August the MMA world is bringing us some awesome matchups once again. After sifting through all the matchups, below I compiled a list of the top 5 fights for the month that you must watch, or you will die.
