List of UFC events

This is a record 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 includes conflicts. Traditionally, each event starts off with a preliminary card followed with a main card, with the final struggle being known as the main event.
UFC events are separated into seven different formats:
“Numbered” events, now broadcasting on pay-per-view, with a few exceptions
“UFC on ESPN” events, currently airing on ESPN
“UFC on Fox” occasions, formerly aired on Fox
“Fight Night” events, previously aired on Spike, Fox Sports 1, Fox Sports 2 or UFC Fight Pass. Currently airing on ESPN+
“The Ultimate Fighter Finale” occasions, previously aired on Spike, FX, Fox Sports 1 or UFC Fight Pass. Will start on ESPN+ in 2019
“UFC on FX” occasions, previously aired on FX
“UFC on Fuel TV” events, previously aired on Fuel TV
“UFC Live” events, previously aired on Versus
Most of the”numbered” events have taken place on pay-per-view, however there are several exceptions for reasons like tape-delay. Events such as UFC 72, that took place in Belfast, Northern Ireland, U.K., were sold on pay-per-view, but due to tape-delay, buy rates weren’t as large as events that aired at a conventional starting time. [1] Therefore, events taking part in significantly different time zones, including UFC 70, UFC 75, UFC 89, UFC 95, UFC 105, UFC 120, UFC 122, and UFC 138, were given a same-night broadcasting in American prime time on Spike.

Historically, the UFC has also aired preliminary struggles ahead of the main fight cards, possibly on television through Spike, FX, and Fuel TV, or online through Facebook and YouTube. Beginning 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 a portion of the business’s global growth, the UFC started broadcasting various international events exclusively in their subscription-based digital community, UFC Fight Pass.

In July 2009, the UFC held its unofficial 100th”inaugural occasion”; however, officially, despite being called UFC 100, it was really the 101st numbered event (and of course the 133rd event overall). The UFC signed a deal with Fox Sports Net, after Fox agreed to broadcast one struggle in June 2002, during its”All-Star Summer” that month. [5] UFC 37 and 38 had been scheduled and encouraged, however as UFC 38 was the promotion’s debut in the United Kingdom, they established UFC 37.5; an occasion that became the first ever combined martial arts fight available on cable television.

As of UFC 239: Jones vs. Santos, which took place on July 6, 2019, there were 484 UFC events held in 154 cities in 26 countries.
