The mixed martial arts promotion the Ultimate Fighting Championship was first founded in November of 1993 with their first ever event held at the McNichols Sports Arena in Denver, Colorado. At first, it was not intended to become a sport but rather a one off show but after a very successful pay per view telecast for their first event, they decided to do another and another to what has not become a 3.5 billon dollar industry. However, there were some bumps in the road along the way especially in their early years when the competition between combatants were so bizarre that it caused concern by some of the authorities in the US. In the beginning, there were no weight classes, many fighters often face much larger or taller opponents. And the fighting itself lacked rules and regulations as punching in the back of the head, groin strikes, fish-hooking, headbutting, and elbows were allowed. Following some of the very first events of the UFC, Senator John McCain led a campaign to ban the UFC, calling it human cockfighting and 36 states would eventually enact laws that would ban no holds barred fighting including in New York. After some harsh criticism, the UFC began to redesign its rules and regulations removing some of the frowned upon techniques while keeping the core elements of striking and grappling. Weight classes were then introduced and by UFC 14 gloves became mandatory. Slowly but surely the UFC started to rebrand itself as a true sport instead of a spectacle. The UFC in the early 2000’s was then bought for two million by the Fertittas brothers along with their business partner Dana White who would become the President of the of the promotion and the popularity of the sport began to rise after the Zuffa purchase due to greater advertising, corporate sponsorship, and home video DVD releases. As the sport began to evolve, many notable great UFC fighters started to come along, big names like Frank Shamrock, Randy Couture, Victor Belfort, Tito Ortiz, Matt Hughes, Wanderlei Silva, Chuck Liddell and Andrei Arlovksi to name a few. However, by 2004 the UFC was still suffering great losses in finances and decided expand on their television market and make a foray into network television. The Fertitta brothers decided to have its own reality series as a promotional vehicle to their bigger shows on Pay Per View. Their first reality show “The Ultimate Fighter” debuted on Spike TV in 2005 and became an instant success. The show has since switched to FX with UFC also signing a new deal with Fox Sports to telecast some of their smaller cards. The popularity of the sport began to surge following their first network reality television series garnering impressive pay per view numbers including 1.7 million buys for UFC 100. The promotion began to threaten the oldest combat sport Boxing as the premier combat sport in the states after a new group of exciting fighters began to emerge in the 2000’s such as Georges St. Pierre, Brock Lesnar, Dan Hederson, and Maurico “Shogun” Rua to name a few. UFC now showcases Women’s MMA and sign its first female fighter and now possibly Dana White’s biggest star Ronda Rousey the undefeated UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion.
The mixed martial arts promotion of the UFC has come along since their first event in November of 1993 in Denver. Now the promotion is worth billions of dollars, have set up new markets with a new television deal that expands their audience in countries like Brazil, Canada, New Zealand, Italy, and the United States.
The UFC will continue to expand internationally with regular shows coming to the Brazil, Canada, and the UK with an office in the UK to expand the European audience.
In 2015, the UFC has tv programming on Fox, Fox Sports 1, and Fox Sports 2. Dana White still serves as the President and their biggest stars in the sport is Jon Jones and UFC Women's Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey.
