Mixed Martial Arts, or MMA, is one of the most dynamic and unpredictable combat sports out there. Fighters from all different disciplines, including boxing, wrestling, jiu-jitsu, taekwondo, kickboxing, judo, muay Thai, and more compete in the octagon for superiority in a variety of weight classes. The combination of knockout power, precision grappling, and unique fighting styles gives MMA a broad appeal. In fact, MMA events and fight cards have made household names out of many fighters, including Connor McGregor, Khabib Nurmagomedov, Tito Ortiz, Chuck Liddell, Urijah Faber, Ronda Rousey, Sean O’Malley, Ken Shamrock, Israel Adesanya, Brian Barberena, and Danny Sabatello.
Where to See a UFC Fight Live
The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), run by league president Dana White, is by far the most popular MMA league in the United States, attracting fighters from all over the world to compete in its nine weight divisions. UFC also showcases female fighters, many of whom are making names for themselves in the women’s strawweight, flyweight, bantamweight, and featherweight divisions.
UFC fight cards typically showcase multiple fights in different weight classes. Preliminary bouts consist of two five-minute rounds with a minute rest in between; main card matches consist of three five-minute rounds; championship matches are comprised of five five-minute rounds. One of the most exciting aspects of a UFC fight is that it may not make it to the end. Most fighters in the octagon have incredible power and are skilled grapplers, leading to frequent knockouts and tap-outs.
Main event UFC fights are usually held in high-profile venues like MGM Grand and Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, Nevada, and Madison Square Garden in New York, attracting fight fans and sports gamblers from all over the country. However, the league has recently expanded to other places, including the UFC APEX facility and even a private island dubbed Fight Island off the coast of Abu Dhabi that could host UFC events in a bubble during the COVID-19 pandemic.
