The Ultimate Fighting Championship (ufc) is an american mixed martial arts (mma) promotion company based in las vegas, nevada, which is owned and operated by Endeavor Group Holdings along with Silver Lake Partners, Kohlberg Kravis Roberts and MSD Capital via Zuffa, LLC. It is the largest MMA promotion company in the world and features the highest-level fighters on the roster. The ufc produces events worldwide that showcase twelve weight divisions and abide by the Unified Rules of Mixed Martial Arts. As of 2020, the ufc has held over 500 events. Dana White has been ufc president since 2001. Under White’s stewardship, the ufc has grown into a globally popular multi-billion-dollar enterprise.
The first event was held in 1993 at the McNichols Sports Arena in Denver, Colorado. The purpose of the early Ultimate Fighting Championship competitions was to identify the most effective martial art in a contest with minimal rules between competitors of different fighting disciplines like boxing, Brazilian jiu-jitsu, sambo, wrestling, Muay Thai, karate, judo and other styles. In subsequent events, fighters began adopting effective techniques from more than one discipline, which indirectly helped create an entirely separate style of fighting known as
Holloway’s chin has been suspect in the past, but that’s not an issue here. He can’t get close enough to land a punch. That matters. Poirier is one of the few fighters in the UFC who isn’t just willing to sit back and wait for his opponent to make a mistake, but is capable of taking advantage when they do — and often when they don’t.
Holloway’s best chance at victory appears to be his wrestling, but when he tries to drag things down it’s Poirier who offers the most resistance. Holloway tries shooting for Poirier’s legs, but Poirier stuffs his attempts and lands hammerfists on the side of Holloway’s head as he does so. Holloway attempts a single-leg takedown against the fence, but again it’s Poirier who dictates where the fight goes. It will be interesting to see if Holloway goes back to that gameplan later in this fight, but for now he realizes there are easier ways to win — and that means standing up with Poirier and trading shots.
The only problem with that strategy is that Holloway can’t stand up with Poirier for long periods of time without getting hurt. No one at 145 pounds
The UFC is the premier mixed martial arts (MMA) organization and largest pay-per-view event provider in the world.
The UFC was founded in 1993 by Art Davie and Rorion Gracie on a business plan written by Davie.

The first UFC event of the year was held in San Diego, California, on January 18, 2020. The main event was a rematch between fighters who had previously met in February 2015 at UFC 184. The winner of the main event would be declared the new champion of the division.
The UFC is known for its live events, which showcase the best fighters in the world. But when you take a look at the UFC’s biggest stars, it’s easy to see why they are so popular. It’s not just their fighting skill that makes them stand out; it’s their personality, too. So what makes a champion?
What is a champion? A champion is someone who wins a competition or contest, usually against another person or team. A champion is also someone who shows exceptional skill or courage in something they do. The word ‘champion’ comes from the Latin word campionem, which means ‘warrior’ or ‘fighter’.
You may have heard of ‘champions league’, which is a soccer competition between teams from several European countries. There are many other types of champions in sport and other areas of life, such as chess and music competitions.
