List of UFC events

This is a record of events held and sche­du­led with the Ulti­ma­te Figh­ting Cham­pions­hip (UFC), a mixed mar­tial arts mar­ke­ting based in the Uni­ted Sta­tes. UFC’s pri­ma­ry event, UFC 1, took place on Novem­ber 12, 1993. Each UFC event con­tains seve­ral conflicts. Tra­di­tio­nal­ly, each event starts off with a pre­li­mi­na­ry card fol­lowed by a princi­pal card, with the final fight known as the princi­pal event.
UFC events are sepa­ra­ted into seven dif­fe­rent for­mats:
“Num­be­red” occa­sions, now broadcas­ting on pay-per-view, with a few excep­tions
UFC on ESPN” events, now airing on ESPN
UFC on Fox” occa­sions, for­mer­ly aired on Fox
“Fight Night” events, for­mer­ly aired on Spi­ke, Fox Sports 1, Fox Sports two or UFC Fight Pass. Cur­rent­ly airing on ESPN+
“The Ulti­ma­te Figh­ter Fina­le” occa­sions, for­mer­ly aired on Spi­ke, FX, Fox Sports 1 or 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” events, pre­vious­ly aired on Ver­sus
The majo­ri­ty of these“numbered” events have taken place on pay-per-view, howe­ver the­re are seve­ral excep­tions for rea­sons such as tape-delay. Occa­sions such as UFC 72, which took place in Bel­fast, Nort­hern Ire­land, U.K., were sold on pay-per-view, but due to tape-delay, buy rates were not as high as events that aired at a tra­di­tio­nal star­ting time. [1] The­re­fo­re, 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 given a same-night broadcas­ting in Ame­rican pri­me time on Spi­ke. [2]
His­to­rical­ly, the UFC has also aired pre­li­mi­na­ry fights ahead of the princi­pal 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 star­ted broadcas­ting non-PPV events on eit­her Fox Sports 1 or Fox Sports 2. [3] In Janua­ry 2014, as part of their business’s glo­bal growth, the UFC began airing various inter­na­tio­nal events exclusi­ve­ly in their subsc­rip­tion-based digi­tal network, UFC Fight Pass.

Back in July 2009, the UFC held its unof­ficial 100th“numbered event”; nonet­he­less, official­ly, des­pi­te being known as UFC 100, it was real­ly the 101st num­be­red event (not to men­tion that the 133rd event enti­re ). 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 been sche­du­led and pro­mo­ted, but as UFC 38 was the promotion’s int­ro­duc­tion in the uk, they crea­ted UFC 37.5; an event that beca­me the first ever mixed mar­tial arts fight on cable tele­vi­sion. [5]
As of UFC 239: Jones vs. San­tos, which hap­pe­ned on July 6, 2019, the­re were 484 UFC events held in 154 cities in 26 count­ries.
