The complete 2020 UFC schedule of fights
It's the fastest growing sport in the world and each UFC event delivers an unmissable fight night if you know when to tune in.
Whether it goes the distance or is a first-round knockout, each UFC event is an epic experience. A UFC fight night usually involves upwards of 12 fights, always with one - but sometimes with two and even three - title bouts included. Whether it's the men or the women, you can be guaranteed of blood and brutality.
Clarity on when and where the next year of UFC events and UFC fight nights will unfold is often cloudy. The schedule rarely looks more than a few months ahead with confidence, although fans who keep an ear close to the ground usually have some accurate predictions on what we can expect further down the track.
If you live in Australia, we have a comprehensive guide to all your options for watching UFC. While the Main Card of each UFC event is generally reserved for the pay-per-view services, there are some fights such as the PPV undercards and Fight Night you can watch in its entirety through Kayo Sports or via Foxtel, too. In fact, as both of these services offer free trials, if you're a new customer you can usually watch part of a UFC event for free.
