List of UFC events

This is a record of events scheduled and held by the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), a mixed martial arts marketing based in the USA. UFC’s primary event, UFC 1, took place on November 12, 1993. Each UFC event contains fights. Traditionally, each event starts off with a preliminary card followed by a main card, with the last fight known as the main event.
UFC events are split into seven different formats:
“Numbered” events, currently 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” events, previously aired on Spike, Fox Sports 1, Fox Sports two or UFC Fight Pass. Currently airing on ESPN+
“The Ultimate Fighter Finale” events, 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” events, previously aired on Fuel TV
“UFC Live” events, formerly aired on Versus
Most of these”numbered” events have happened on pay-per-view, however there are a few exceptions for reasons like tape-delay. Occasions like 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 high as occasions that aired at a conventional starting time. [1] As such, events taking part in a number of time zones, including UFC 70, UFC 75, UFC 89, UFC 95, UFC 105, UFC 120, UFC 122, and UFC 138, were awarded a same-night airing in American prime time on Spike. [2]
Historically, the UFC has also aired preliminary struggles prior to the main fight cards, possibly on tv via Spike, FX, and Fuel TV, or online through 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 part of their business’s global growth, the UFC began airing various foreign events exclusively in their subscription-based digital network, UFC Fight Pass. [4]
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 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 already been scheduled and promoted, however as UFC 38 was the promotion’s debut in the United Kingdom, they established UFC 37.5; an event that became the first ever mixed martial arts fight on cable tv. [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 nations.
