UFC History

The UFC made its mark with its first event in the US in Denver in 1993, but the sport didn’t capture the public’s attention until early 2000’s. UFC is now one of the biggest brands in world sport entertainment. 

With President Dana White at the helm since 2001, the UFC has grown into a household name and it has attracted some of the biggest names in the MMA world. It has also spawned a cross-code fight between Conor McGregor and unbeaten boxer Floyd Mayweather in August 2017.

The UFC has been able to secure massive TV deals with the likes of Fox Sports and ESPN to broadcast the fighting action and TV shows such as The Ultimate Fighter and a host of video game titles have helped boost its popularity.

Often considered barbaric and hard to watch, UFC is mostly loved by fighting fans and it adds an excitement in which boxing can’t relate. With so many different styles on show, fighters can end the fight with anything from a standing choke to a flying cage kick. 

Most things go inside the Octagon and the unpredictability is what makes it so exciting to watch.

UFC has also attracted former WWE wrestling stars including Brock Lesnar and Hall of Fame inductee Kem Shamrock.
