MMA schedule 2024: Dates, division, location for upcoming fights | Sporting News United Kingdom

Fans had a lot to celebrate in 2023, with several big fights being made, some of which achieved record viewing numbers. It also marked the end of an era, as the PFL bought Bellator.

But while one less organization exists in MMA, there are still several huge fights in the making for this year. The UFC will see the return of Conor McGregor, who will take on Michael Chandler sometime in 2024. CEO Dana White also teased a fight card in the MSG Sphere in Las Vegas, and the company will also celebrate UFC 300.

Outside of the UFC, the PFL will put on another championship season. The promotion will also activate the Super Fight division, featuring the likes of Francis Ngannou, Jake Paul, Amanda Serrano, and others. 

Which fights are you looking forward to the most?
