UFC tickets are available for the various MMA events held by the company. The Ultimate Fighting Championship began in 1993 as a single-day, eight-man tournament with very few rules to determine the best style of martial arts. The first victor was Royce Gracie, who became a legend of the sport along with other fighters like Ken Shamrock and Dan Severn. The violence in the early years of the UFC forced the sport to go underground to a degree and add more rules to protect the fighters.
The company was eventually purchased by Zuffa in 2001. Dana White was brought in to promote the fights. Stars like Tito Ortiz, Chuck Liddell and Randy Couture, along with the reality show “The Ultimate Fighter” and “Fight Night” events on cable led to a boom period of growth for the company. After UFC’s acquisition of Strikeforce, women’s MMA matches were added to UFC cards in 2013, with Ronda Rousey becoming the first champion. UFC tickets are a hot commodity among MMA fans who wish to see their favorite fighters live.
UFC events take place at various arenas throughout the world. Match cards are held in most major cities in the United States. Reserved seating is typically available around the lower and upper level bowls, along with floor seats around the octagon. Front row, ringside seats are often difficult to come by, and will be at a premium price when available.

UFC typically features over 40 events a year across the United States and various other countries. UFC Fight Night and UFC on ESPN cards take place in front of live audiences and air on ESPN’s cable and streaming networks. Major fight cards are numbered events that take place on Pay-Per-View in front of sold-out crowds. Cards feature a variety of weight classes including heavyweight, middleweight and lightweight fighters. Multiple shows take place each month creating many chances for fans to see MMA matches live.
Be sure to check the ticket listings often as new match cards are added to the schedule.
