Ultimate Fighting Championship TicketsWith its very first event held back on November 12, 1993, the UFC, or Ultimate Fighting Championship, has grown to become a global phenomenon in the world of combat sports, with many of its most famous and decorated fighters — like Ronda Rousey and Conor McGregor — becoming household names. Envisioned by its founders to be a place where the best fighters in the world from across all sorts of martial arts disciplines — from karate, to boxing, kickboxing, greco-roman wrestling and Brazilian jiu-jitsu — can come together to test their skills, the UFC began with a wide assortment of fighters fighting in different styles. Since then, the various disciplines have coalesced into one form of mixed-martial arts, both fighting and training have become increasingly professionalized. President Dana White has helped the promotion grow in prestige until it pulled in more than $700 million in revenue in 2017 and was able to headline events in enormous sporting arenas across the world.
