UFC is finishing up one of the most successful years in company history, thanks in part to the meteoric rise of Conor McGregor. While the company is set to wrap up its 2016 campaign on Dec. 30 when former women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey gets her shot to reclaim gold against Amanda Nunes, UFC announced its early 2017 schedule with three pay-per-view events.
The biggest event on the docket will be UFC 209 when two titles — one real and one interim — will be on the line in Las Vegas. Here’s how the schedule shakes out.
