During the pandemic, we’ve had to get used to the UFC not making the rounds across the country and around the world the way it did before COVID-19 was a thing.
Once fights started back up in May 2020, the UFC has only been to three cities outside Las Vegas and Abu Dhabi. So we thought it would be a good time to take a look back at the cities the UFC has been to in the U.S. – but has yet to find a chance to go back to.
Below, we present the one-time-only UFC cities so far.
(Note: Some cities technically qualify for the list – like Albuquerque, N.M., which the UFC went to in 2014. But because the UFC went to Rio Rancho, N.M., a near suburb of Albuquerque, in 2020, we grouped the two together. So Rosemont, Ill., doesn’t make the cut because it’s a near suburb of Chicago, which the UFC has been to several times. Sure, that makes this list slightly arbitrary. But you’ll forgive us.)
