MMA

The UFC has announced event dates for the first quarter of 2019, including its first ESPN Fight Night card on Jan. 19 in Brooklyn, New York.

That event, which does not yet have a headliner, will take place at Barclays Center and air exclusively on ESPN+. It is the first event of a five-year, $1.5 billion deal that makes ESPN the exclusive home of non-pay-per-view UFC fight cards in the U.S.

The first televised ESPN event will take place on Sunday, Feb. 17, at Talking Stick Resort Arena in Phoenix.

The UFC’s 2019 PPV schedule will kick off with UFC 233 on Jan. 26 at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California. UFC 234 is slated for Feb. 9 and does not have an official venue, although sources tell ESPN the UFC has targeted Melbourne, Australia.

UFC 235 is set to take place on March 2 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
