What: 2016 Topps UFC Knockout MMA trading cards
Arrives: Spring 2016
Box basics: Two hits per pack with four 10-card packs per box, 12 boxes per case
What’s buzz-worthy: The UFC women’s division has faced some changes of late with Holly Holm dethroning Ronda Rousey as the champ so changes to the format of UFC Knockout also seem appropriate and seem just as big. This time around, there are two hits in every pack instead of one and there are just four packs in a box instead of 10. There will be at least one autograph per pack.
