UFC 205: New York
For the first time in nearly 20 years an Ultimate Fighting Championship match will be played in New York on November 12th. Following a nearly 20-year legal battle, New York has finally lifted a ban on Mixed Martial Arts paving the way for an epic line up of fighters at Madison Square Garden for UFC 205. The fight card is highlighted by featherweight championship & Irish superstar Conor McGregor in his attempt to make history against lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez. The UFC expects this to be the highest-grossing event in its history. VIP ringside seats are going for over $20k but plenty of more reasonably priced tickets are still available through Events 365.
UFC 206: Toronto

The main event will feature light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier vs Anthony Johnson in a rematch of their epic May 2015 bout with an undercard featuring Canada’s best fighters versus the World.
