The UFC announce its event schedule for the first three months of 2018, and it’ll be a busy start to the new year, as usual. A total of nine cards will be staged over twelve weeks, with three of them on pay-per-view.

January 14th (Sun): UFC Fight Night in St. Louis, Missouri
January 20th: UFC 220 in Boston, Massachusetts
January 27th: UFC Fight Night in Charlotte, North Carolina

February 3rd: UFC Fight Night in Belem, Brazil
February 10th: UFC 221 in Perth, Australia
February 18th: UFC Fight Night in Austin, Texas
February 24th (Sun): UFC Fight Night in Orlando, Florida

March 3rd: UFC 222 in Las Vegas, Nevada
March 17th: UFC Fight Night in London, England

It’s the first time the the UFC has ever staged a card in St. Louis, having previously made its debut in Missouri at UFC on FOX 24 in Kansas City this past April. Their Charlotte show marks the promotion’s first trip to the city since Kenny Florian defeated Takanori Gomi in 2010. Neither Belem nor Perth had ever hosted a UFC show before, so those two international cities will get the chance to do so in February.

Fight announcements for all of those shows will be made in the coming weeks.
