List of UFC events


This is a record of events scheduled and held with the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), a mixed martial arts marketing based in the USA. UFC’s first event, UFC 1, happened on November 12, 1993. Each UFC event includes several conflicts. Traditionally, every event starts off with a preliminary card followed with a principal card, together with the last struggle being known as the principal event.
UFC events are split into seven Distinct formats:
“Numbered” events, now broadcasting on pay-per-view, with a few exceptions
“UFC on ESPN” events, now airing on ESPN
“UFC on Fox” occasions, previously aired on Fox
“Fight Night” occasions, previously aired on Spike, Fox Sports 1, Fox Sports 2 or UFC Fight Pass. Currently airing on ESPN+
“The Ultimate Fighter Finale” occasions, formerly aired on Spike, FX, Fox Sports 1 or 2 UFC Fight Pass. Will start on ESPN+ in 2019
“UFC on FX” occasions, previously aired on FX
“UFC on Fuel TV” occasions, previously aired on Fuel TV
“UFC Live” events, formerly aired on Versus
The majority of the”numbered” events have happened on pay-per-view, however there have been a few exceptions for reasons such as tape-delay. Occasions such as UFC 72, that happened in Belfast, Northern Ireland, U.K., were marketed on pay-per-view, but because of tape-delay, buy rates weren’t as large as occasions that aired in a traditional starting time. [1] As such, events taking part in significantly different 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.

Historically, the UFC has also aired preliminary fights prior to the principal fight cards, either on television via Spike, FX, and Gas TV, or online via Facebook and YouTube. Starting in August 2013, starting 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 expansion, the UFC began airing various international events exclusively on their subscription-based digital community, UFC Fight Pass. [4]
Back in July 2009, the UFC held its unofficial 100th”inaugural occasion”; nonetheless, formally, despite being called 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 1 fight 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 created UFC 37.5; an occasion that became the first ever mixed martial arts fight 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 nations.
