The Ultimate Fighting Championship has reached the second half of its 2014 pay-per-view fight schedule that promises to provide some of the most watched fights in UFC history. For example, one of the biggest rematches in UFC history goes down on Saturday, Sept. 27, when light heavyweight champion Jon Jones and No. 1 contender Alexander Gustafsson square off at UFC 178. It’ll mark one year since they battled at UFC 165 when Jones posted a unanimous-decision win in a five-round thriller that was named “2013 Fight of the Year.”
While it costs around $45 to $55 to order a UFC pay-per-view event for a private residence, public venues such as sports bars, restaurants and casinos must pay a commercial licensing fee. The commercial cost depends on the size of the establishment based on their Fire Occupancy Certificate.
While it does cost more to show UFC pay-per-view events in commercial establishments, many bar and restaurant owners agree that it’s a great investment. “The UFC makes my business boom!” said Roy Johns, owner of Cadillac Jax, Billings, MT.

Just recently, the UFC announced their 2014 schedule that will include 35 events, including 13 pay-per-view fights. Normally, the UFC pay-per-view schedule includes high-profiled championship fighters, such as Jon Jones, George St-Pierre and Anderson Silva that deliver sold-out audiences.
While all pay-per-view events include title fights, the free broadcasts on the Fox Network will also show a few title fights and feature top contenders. Broadcasting the free UFC events on the Fox network (Fox, Fox Sports 1 and Fox Sports 2) will help build your customer base for the pay-per-view events. Also, the preliminary bouts for the pay-per-view events are shown for free on Fox Sports 1, usually two hours before the main card.
