By Sherdog.com Staff Nov 17, 2014



For the first time, the Ultimate Fighting Championship has revealed an entire year’s worth of event dates.

UFC officials Monday unveiled the organization’s 2015 schedule during a press conference titled “The Time Is Now” at The Smith Center for the Performing Arts in Las Vegas. All told, the UFC has planned 45 events for the coming year.

The lineup includes 13 numbered events set to air on pay-per-view in the United States. The remaining 32 events will be UFC Fight Night cards, which will be broadcast in the U.S. as four events on the Fox network, 18 events on Fox Sports 1 and 10 events on UFC Fight Pass.

While cities and venues remain unknown for the bulk of the schedule, roughly half of the events are expected to take place in the U.S., with six of those planned for the UFC’s home base of Las Vegas. Main target markets outside of the states include Brazil, which will host seven events and at least one pay-per-view, and Canada, which will see three to five events across cities such as Toronto, Montreal and Calgary.

Five or six events will take place throughout Europe and the Middle East, with expected returns to England, Ireland, Germany, Sweden and a “possible return” to Abu Dhabi. The promotion also revealed hopes to expand into “potential new markets” in Europe, including Poland, Holland and Russia.

Other destinations named during the press conference were Mexico (two events, including Mexico City), Australia (one or two events) and Asia (two or three events, with target markets including Japan, China, Korea and the Philippines).
