The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is a mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion company based in Las Vegas, Nevada, United States. It was founded in 1993 and is the largest MMA promotion in the world. The UFC organizes live events that feature a variety of martial arts styles, including boxing, kickboxing, jiu-jitsu, karate, taekwondo, and wrestling. The events feature both male and female fighters who compete in weight classes ranging from strawweight to heavyweight. The goal of the UFC is to determine the best mixed martial artist in the world by holding tournaments and matchups between fighters.
The UFC was founded by businessman Art Davie and Brazilian martial artist Rorion Gracie, and the first event was held in 1993 at the McNichols Sports Arena in Denver, Colorado. The purpose of the early Ultimate Fighting Championship competitions was to identify the most effective martial art in a contest with minimal rules and no weight classes between competitors of different fighting disciplines. In subsequent events, more rigorous rules were created and fighters began adopting effective techniques from more than one discipline, which indirectly helped create a separate style of fighting known as present-day mixed martial arts. In 2016, UFC’s parent company, Zuffa, was sold to a group led by Endeavor, then known as William Morris Endeavor (WME–IMG), including Silver Lake Partners, Kohlberg Kravis Roberts, and MSD Capital for US$4.025 billion. In 2021, Endeavor bought out Zuffa’s other owners at a valuation of $1.7 billion.
With a TV deal and expansion in Australia, Asia, Europe, and new markets within the United States, the UFC has achieved greater mainstream media coverage. It earned US$609 million in 2015, and its next domestic media rights agreement with ESPN was valued at $1.5 billion over a five-year term. Wikipedia.
