List of UFC events

This is a list of events scheduled and held with the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), a mixed martial arts promotion based in the United States. UFC’s primary event, UFC 1, happened on November 12, 1993. Each UFC event contains conflicts. Traditionally, each event starts off with a preliminary card followed with a main card, with the last fight being known as the main event.
UFC events are separated into seven Distinct formats:
“Numbered” events, currently broadcasting on pay-per-view, with some exceptions
“UFC on ESPN” occasions, currently airing on ESPN
“UFC on Fox” events, formerly aired on Fox
“Fight Night” occasions, formerly aired on Spike, Fox Sports 1, Fox Sports two or UFC Fight Pass. Currently airing on ESPN+
“The Ultimate Fighter Finale” occasions, previously aired on Spike, FX, Fox Sports 1 or 2 UFC Fight Pass. Will start on ESPN+ in 2019
“UFC on FX” events, formerly aired on FX
“UFC on Fuel TV” events, previously aired on Fuel TV
“UFC Live” occasions, formerly aired on Versus
Most of the”numbered” events have taken place on pay-per-view, though there are a few exceptions for reasons such as tape-delay. Events such as UFC 72, that happened in Belfast, Northern Ireland, U.K., were marketed on pay-per-view, but because of tape-delay, purchase rates were not as large as occasions which aired at a conventional starting time. [1] Therefore, events taking part in a number of time zones, such as UFC 70, UFC 75, UFC 89, UFC 95, UFC 105, UFC 120, UFC 122, and UFC 138, were awarded a same-night broadcasting in American prime time on Spike. [2] Historically, the UFC has also aired preliminary fights prior to the main fight cards, possibly on tv through Spike, FX, and Fuel TV, or online through Facebook and YouTube. Starting in August 2013, beginning with UFC Fight Night: Shogun vs. Sonnen, the UFC began airing non-PPV events on Fox Sports 1 or Fox Sports 2. [3] In January 2014, as part of the organization’s global expansion, the UFC began airing various foreign events exclusively on their subscription-based digital community, UFC Fight Pass. [4] In July 2009, the UFC held its unofficial 100th”numbered event”; however, formally, despite being known as UFC 100, it was really the 101st numbered event (and of course that the 133rd event overall). The UFC signed a deal with Fox Sports Net, after Fox agreed to broadcast one fight in June 2002, during its”All-Star Summer” that month. [5] UFC 37 and 38 had already been scheduled and encouraged, however as UFC 38 was the advertising’s debut in the United Kingdom, they created UFC 37.5; an event that became the first ever combined martial arts fight available on cable television. [5] As of UFC 239: Jones vs. Santos, which happened on July 6, 2019, there have been 484 UFC events held in 154 cities in 26 nations.
