2020 UFC TV Preview

The Ultimate Fighting Championship was first set up in the early nineties. The aim was to bring fighters together from different disciplines such as Boxing, Thai Boxing, Judo and Jujitsu to fight in a no-holds-barred knock-out contest over the course of one evening. For many years the sport was banned in most countries until rule changes brought it more in line with other Martial Arts forms. Move forward to 2020 and UFC fighters are some of the most skilled in the world, often mastering several disciplines including kickboxing, jujitsu and wrestling. Contests are either decided on submission, knock-out or a points calculation after several rounds.

Both men and women compete at a number of different weight categories, each with its own World and Interim Champion. Aussie Robert Whittaker is the current UFC Middleweight World Champion and one of its biggest stars. UFC’s most regular event, Fight Night takes place three times a month, throughout the year in locations all over the world. These events highlight the best in up and coming UFC talent, alongside more established veterans, all hoping to move on to the all-important World Title shot. The UFC has produced some household names in the fight game over the years such as Conor McGregor, Ronda Rousey and Brock Lessner, and you won’t have to miss a key moment of the next exciting contest when mobile streaming the UFC should you have to be out and about.
