The UFC, or Ultimate Fighting Championship, was developed by advertising executive Art Davie in conjunction with Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu master Rorion Gracie. Davie proposed a tournament where fighters from different disciplines would match up in a no-holds-barred-style event. The early UFC also tossed out weight classes, so that two fighters of vastly different sizes and weights might end up fighting together. Stricter rules have been implemented, including the addition of weight classes. The first UFC event attracted over 86,000 viewers, which is in addition to the thousands who bought UFC tickets for the event.
Since then, Dana White and his right hand man Lorenzo Feritta have made the UFC their passion and the organization has become one of the most profitable in the country. Some of the legends that helped propel the UFC to new heights are names like Georges St. Pierre, Randy Couture, Brock Lesnar, Anderson Silva and Conor McGregor. These fighters have passed the torch from one fighter to the next and the UFC talent only seems to get better and better, and as a result fans have taken notice. If you aren't on the UFC bandwagon yet there is still plenty of time to jump on. Seeing one of these intense nights of pure fighting live at the venue will make you a believer of just how great the UFC is.

The next big headline event for the UFC is UFC 202. The card will feature a rematch of UFC 196 between Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz. McGregor is the featherweight champion in the UFC, but went up a few weight classes to clash with Diaz. Diaz, a UFC warrior that has been in the game for a long time pulled off the upset in 196, and the two of them are hungry for more. The rematch will most likely be the most anticipated match as well as the highest purse in UFC history. With the stakes at an all-time high and pride on the line this is a rematch you'll want to see!
The card for UFC 202 isn't just the main event either. A crucial light heavyweight bout between Anthony Johnson is taking place vs. Glover Teixeira, and with Jon Jones facing a suspension for two years, the division is wide open for a challenger to step up and take the belt. UFC legend Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone will also be taking on Rick Story in pivotal matchup in the welterweight division.
