The UFC is the fastest growing sports organization in the world. It’s also the No. 1 commercial pay-per-view provider in the history of combat sports. The UFC’s popularity, growing fan base, the fighters’ likeable personalities and competitive mixed-martial arts makes the UFC a must-see monthly pay-per-view event.
Commercial businesses can benefit from the UFC’s popularity. Bars and restaurants showing UFC events see their revenue increase during fight nights. By purchasing a UFC Commercial License, businesses can see a boost in food and beverage sales and also expand their customer base for repeat business.
In 2006, the UFC became the largest pay-per-view provider in the world. Beginning in 2012, the UFC burst into the mainstream with a landmark seven-year broadcast agreement with FOX Sports Media Group. The debut of UFC on FOX was the most watched professional fight since 2003.
UFC has revolutionized the fight business. Live UFC events have sold out some of the biggest arenas in the world. UFC programming is broadcast in over 145 countries, to nearly 800 million TV households worldwide, in 28 different languages.
