My original post:
Spoiler:
Originally from: viewtopic.php?f=13&t=9563

Regarding the confusion on recent and future UFC Fight Night event numbers:


UFC 249 Ferguson vs. Khabib was cancelled due to corona virus. They later made a new PPV called UFC 249 Ferguson vs. Gaethje. They did not change the number to UFC 250 because UFC 249 was cancelled.
So by that logic UFC Fight Night: Smith vs. Teixeira would be UFC Fight Night 171. And so it was released as by both scene and p2p.

I know that in the past when an event was cancelled it was still counted, but that was when a huge PPV got cancelled because something happened in the last minute, not 5 events cancelled far before the event dates because of a pandemic, you know what I mean... It's not the same.

UFC Fight Night 170: Lee vs. Oliveira was last Fight Night before corona lockdown and next was UFC Fight Night 171: Smith vs. Teixeira. Or was it 173 as originally planned even if the event venue and date was changed plus most of the fight card? No. Personally I find that only UFC FN 171 makes sense.

All events post original UFC 249 where completely cancelled due to COVID-19 and a new schedule was created. By all logic in this world those events should not still be counted as UFC events, rather we should start over with the new schedule.

I know this can be hard to grasp for some but man I have been doing this every week for over 12 years and I think I have an idea about how things should be in the longrun to avoid confusion.

That said who cares, 171, ESPN 8, 173, 176 it DOESNT MATTER as long as everybody understands that when you search for these events in the future nothing will make sense unless its made as I said above. Calling this UFC Fight Night 176 will confuse people in a few years when they dont remember corona. But Im open minded...

I wish UFC had an official position on this as reference.

You think NBA or NFL etc will count all games cancelled due to corona? No of course not, so why should UFC?



UFC calls all events either PPV or Fight Nights, they do not call them "on ESPN" anymore. Why are some sites using "on ESPN" when UFC themselves don't? I decided a long time ago to skip the "on ESPN" because I focus on what the actual promotion calls the events. Not what I "think it should be called".

On the other hand UFC do not assign a number to the Fight Nights, reason unknown, but they rather call it by location or main event. Examples would be UFC Fight Night: Smith vs. Teixeira or UFC: Dublin (before main event has been officially announced). The reason we are still assigning numbers is that we need to separate the events in a way that is easy to follow for collections and packs etc.

One thing is that we must follow the promotions way of naming the events, another is that we need them to be in the correct order with numbers that correspond to in what order the event was actually broadcasted.

UFC has no official position on Fight Night event numbers so WE decide what the number is.


WE DECIDE ::thumright::

What do you think?

Keeping it Fight Night 171 makes the most sense. Avoids confusion in the future when/if corona is a distant memory! Shame the UFC dropped the numbering so we have no official reference - although I do like the power of being able to decide ::cheers::

Thanks for your input guys! In the end I guess I will have to try to find some kind of consensus between what all other sites use and what works best for us... Time will tell.

Oh man, I hated how they introduced the whole UFC on [INSERT]. It was so much simpler when everything was just Fight Night. Confuses the hell out of me.

Even though I hate it, I think it's best to stick to what it's 'offically' named, even though it is a punish to organise.
