We’re all counting down the days until we get to see some more action and it can be a challenge to keep track of what MMA events are coming up. We’ve taken a look at the calendars for some of the major MMA organisations for the week starting 8th of March and put together this weeks upcoming MMA events for you, so you can plan out what fight cards will fill your week’s viewing!
Upcoming UFC events
The curse of injury has struck the UFC’s next main event. Darren Till broke his collarbone training for the match up with Marvin Vettori. Fellow top ten Middleweight Kevin Holland stepped up last minute and will take Till’s place. Israel Adesanya had already tapped Till as next in line for a title shot so with his injury we might be looking at a title eliminator fight this weekend. That said, we’re most excited for the featherweight co-main event when UK Star Arnold Allen fights to secure his number ten spot against eleventh ranked Sodiq Yusuff.
Marvin Vettori vs. Kevin Holland
Arnold Allen vs. Sodiq Yusuff
Kyle Daukaus vs. Aliaskhab Khizriev
Sam Alvey vs. Julian Marquez
Nina Ansaroff vs. Mackenzie Dern
Mike Perry vs. Daniel Rodriguez
Upcoming ONE Championship events
ONE Championship upcoming MMA event is arguably the biggest in the organisation’s history. It’s their first event that will be televised in the US and even though theres been some COVID related changes it’s headlined by three big match ups. Mighty Mouse is headlining in his challenge for the ONE Flyweight world title against Adriano Moraes, Eddie Alvarez takes the co-main against Iuri Lapicus and then Muay Thai superstar Rodtang takes on Danial Williams. ONE are looking to make a huge impact on their US debut, and we’re looking forward to the impact of this event. While we’d prefer it if COVID hadn’t stopped the Liam Harrison fight, or the Jacob Smith vs. Rodtang match up, we’re definitely most excited to see a major Muay Thai fight as a centerpiece for such a big card and can’t wait to see Rodtang back in action.
Demetrious Johnson vs. Adriano Moraes (Flyweight World Championship)
Eddie Alvarez vs. Iuri Lapicus
Rodtang Jitmuangnon vs. Danial Williams
Tyler McGuire vs. Raimond Magomedaliev
Rade Opacic vs. Patrick Schmid

Upcoming Bellator events
The Bellator train started rolling again last week and it shows no sign of stopping. Coming up this week we have Bader vs. Machida 2 and the launch of the Light Heavyweight Grand Prix. The card sees Liz Carmouche making her delayed debut and Cat Zingano returning for her second Bellator fight. We’re most looking forward to the main event and seeing if Bader can avenge the loss to Machida from 2012.

Liz Carmouche vs. Vanessa Porto
Jeremy Kennedy vs. Adam Borics
