UFC’s year-round schedule never truly slows down as the organization hosts more than 30 events every year. And 2019 is no different for the leader in mixed martial arts. Fresh off UFC 243 in Melbourne which saw Israel Adesanya stake his claim to the middleweight title with a TKO over Robert Whittaker, the UFC schedule marches forward with nine events left before the end of 2019.
The next stop takes us to Madison Square Garden after a week of uncertainty surrounding the main event of UFC 244. Nate Diaz vs. Jorge Masvidal will go off as planned after some questions regarding a drug test with Diaz just nine days before the bout. UFC will crown its inaugural “BMF” champion in New York City.
Then in December, one of the most anticipated rivalry bouts hits Las Vegas when welterweight champ Kamaru Usman takes on Colby Covington at UFC 245. the two have shared bad blood for the better part of a year and will finally lock horns inside the Octagon.
There’s plenty more enticing main events and co-main events to get ready for as 2019 starts to draw to a close.
