4.2 billion. That’s how much Zuffa sold the UFC for in 2016 after buying it for only 2 million in 2000. The world’s leading provider of mixed martial arts action has become even more popular than the actual sport. With a market share of over 90%, the UFC has visited over 130 cities from 22 countries. And they’re only getting bigger as they keep putting out more events for all combat sports aficionados everywhere.

UFC Pay Per View Schedule

Since 2006, the UFC has held at least one PPV each month and the hectic TV schedule didn’t change that format. PPVs can be ordered via a cable subscriber, UFC Fight Pass or YouTube so catching the action isn’t difficult. Coming up are pairs of championship fights and rematches starting with UFC 209 featuring the welterweight and interim lightweight championship bouts.

Then, the UFC returns to Buffalo in April with the long-awaited rematch between light heavyweight kingpin Daniel Cormier and the UFC’s most dangerous knockout artist, Anthony “Rumble” Johnson.

When the UFC goes to Dallas they always stack the event and two title bouts with heavyweights Stipe Miocic and Junior dos Santos rematch while the most electrifying female fighter, Joanna Jedrzejczyk tries to make it five straight title defenses against the unstoppable Jessica Andrade.
