Why Order UFC® on DISH Pay-Per-View?
UFC® events have become extremely popular over the last twenty years. The first UFC® held in 1993 in Denver sold only 2,800 tickets, and 86,000 people ordered it on various pay-per-view providers. Now, UFC® fights always sell out large arenas that seat as many as 20,000 people, and over one million people purchase pay-per-view UFC® fights. With DISH high definition pay-per-view, you will feel like you’re ringside for the thrilling UFC® bouts.
If you’ve never seen a UFC® match, you are missing out as this MMA promotion company is the largest in the world and hosts the top-ranked fighters from around the globe. UFC® competitors battle it out in an octagon-shaped ring for a maximum of five rounds that last no longer than five minutes each. There is a one-minute rest period between the rounds. There are eight weight classes from flyweight (125 pounds) up to heavyweight (265 pounds), and fighters must wear approved shorts and no shoes; they must also use approved regulation gloves with at least one inch of padding around the knuckles. Matches end in one of the following ways:
- Submission: One fighter verbally submits, taps the mat or his opponent to declare he is accepting defeat. If a fighter loses consciousness or has suffered a serious injury, a “technical submission” may be called by the referee.
- Knockout: A fighter wins by knocking his opponent into unconsciousness with any legal blow.
- Technical Knockout (TKO): A referee can declare a TKO if he feels one fighter cannot continue. A ringside doctor can decide it’s unsafe for one fighter to continue, and a fighter’s corner team can signal the referee that his fighter cannot continue the match.
- Judges’ Decision: Based on the judges’ scores, a fight can end in a variety decisions: unanimous decision, majority decision, split decision, unanimous draw, majority draw or split draw.
