A Contender's Series is a seasonal show that airs every Tuesday. These fights feature prospects looking to break into the UFC or veterans looking to make a comeback. It is a spin-off of The Ultimate Fighter. These fights may feature fighters you haven't heard of, but some of them are stars-in-the-making.
These usually air on UFC Fight Pass.A UFC Fight Night is a television card that usually airs on TSN on Saturdays and the occasional Sunday. These events are the most common and while they rarely have championship fights, the UFC showcases its upcoming fighters and fan favourites in these events.
A numbered UFC event is the ultimate event, which puts face to face the best UFC fighters: a pay-per-view that features the promotion's best fighters. Championship fights are almost always held here as well as big matchups between superstars and Hall of Famers. These are the events that get the most publicity and most betting action.
Upcoming UFC Fights
There are always great UFC fights for everyone. With a roster of over 500 fighters from 12 divisions from 60 countries, there is plenty of diversity. MMA keeps growing as a sport and despite the vast amount of fights, the UFC still manages to put on great events. There is always a hot new UFC contender waiting to shine.
Every UFC superstar cut their teeth fighting on TV or the preliminary cards. Regardless of which order the fight stands, there is plenty of entertainment waiting for the faithful fan. We've still got plenty of fights coming.
Here is a brief rundown of some fun upcoming UFC fights:
Alexander Gustafsson vs Anthony Smith
UFC Fight Night: Gustafsson vs Smith
June 1, 2019
Look no further than the UFC fights this weekend as a light heavyweight banger between former title challengers Gustafsson and Smith takes place in Stockholm. Both fighters are heavy hitters and prefer to fight standing up. Gustafsson knocked out top-five fighter Glover Teixeira in his last victory while Smith has finished all of his opponents in his victories. This bout is likely to end in a finish.
Henry Cejudo vs Marlon Moraes
UFC 238: Cejudo vs Moraes (June 8, 2019)
Are we going to see the fourth champ-champ in UFC history? Flyweight champion Henry Cejudo is looking for his second title at bantamweight if he gets past the red-hot Marlon Moraes. Both fighters have been on a tear with both on four-fight winning streaks including impressive first-round finishes. Cejudo is a wrestler with knockout power and Moraes is a finisher. Either way, we will see a new champion crowned in spectacular fashion.
Francis Ngannou vs Junior Dos Santos
UFC on ESPN 3 (June 29, 2019)
Two heavyweight knockout artists collide for the next shot at the heavyweight throne. Ngannou just knocked out former champion Cain Velasquez in under a minute while Dos Santos has won three straight with the last two coming via TKO. With 24 combined knockouts, this fight is almost guaranteed a finish. The only question is, when? Don't blink.
And here are a few unconfirmed bouts that are too good to not happen:
Khabib Nurmagomedov vs Dustin Poirier
UFC 242 (rumoured) (September 7, 2019)
In possibly the biggest fight this year, the UFC's newest superstar returns to face the UFC's most exciting fighter. Nurmagomedov puts his undefeated streak and lightweight title on the line to face interim champion Dustin Poirier in what should be a classic wrestler versus striker match. The bout hasn't been officially announced yet but should take place around UFC 242 from Abu Dhabi.
Robert Whittaker vs Israel Adesanya
UFC 243 (Rumoured) (October 5, 2019)
Shortly after the lightweight title unification, we have the middleweight champion versus champion bout between two Kiwis. Defending champion Robert Whittaker returns to fight interim champion Israel Adesanya. Aptly taking place in Sydney, Australia (per reports), the two will slug it out in what should be a brilliant display of elite striking. This could be the fight of the year.
