After an incredibly successful month of September that saw two champions defend their belts, along with some stunning debuts and the return of one Nick Diaz! The UFC will keep the action going through the rest of the year, with a card almost every weekend.
There are a whopping five UFC events scheduled to take place this month, with three Fight Nights along with the UFC 267 Pay-Per-View card. Check out the current bout order below.
