UFC in 2020 is going to be one of the most exciting years in MMA history. The first quarter alone promises to deliver three massive main events, with many money fights coming up and the title picture in certain divisions clearing up as well.

Moreover, 2019 also saw a lot of fighters change weight classes, stacking up certain divisions. But this list isn't just about those money fights and title fights, it's the divisions as a whole and which ones are most exciting.

As we know, the Men and Women's Flyweight fall under the opposite category since they're not that stacked nor promoted, but many of the lower weight classes have stacked up and promise to deliver some incredible fights next year.

Without further ado, let's analyze the five most exciting UFC divisions in 2020 and what it is that makes them must-watch.

#5. Women's Strawweight

It's no secret that the 115-pound division has the highest concentration of elite-level female talent in all of MMA. The Featherweight division was created for Cris Cyborg who isn't around now and the Bantamweight division has been cleared up by The Lioness Amanda Nunes.

Strawweight, however, is very different. After Rose Namajunas defeated Joanna Jedrzejczyk in 2017, the doors were busted wide open and the title has since gone to Jessica Andrade before the Chinese sensation Weili Zhang dethroned her earlier in 2019.

Zhang vs Jedrzejczyk is expected to be the next title fight but apart from just that, the return of Tatiana Suarez brings a lot of excitement too. There are a whole bunch of fights in the 115-pound division that promise to excite and the Top 10 fights are going to be entertaining to watch. It will continue the evolution of Women's MMA.
