Conor McGregor UFC 202 2016

The Ultimate Fighting Championship or UFC produces pay-per-view (PPV) and broadcast TV events that feature fights across North America, Europe, Asia, and Australia.

UFC is the largest mixed martial arts (MMA) promoter and hosts top-ranked fighters, producing global events in front of packed arenas.

The UFC has eight weight-divisions for men, two weight-division for women, and enforces the Unified Rules of Mixed Martial Arts.

Unlike other fighting disciplines the UFC features relatively long round times. In non-championship bouts fights consist of three-five minute rounds; while championship bouts feature five-five rounds. If the fight is not decided before the allotted time concludes a three panel scoring system is used to determine a winner – similar to boxing.

Fights are undertaken in the ‘Octagon’, an eight sided caged arena. One referee stands inside the cage with two fighters to adjudicate during the fight.

The Roar regularly publishes UFC opinion, interviews and reports, looking chiefly at Australian and New Zealand based fighters, as well as the huge match-ups and grudges.
