A week after Bisping-Henderson II, the Octagon will be back in the Philippines for a UFC Fight Night event on October 15 that features the return of Hall of Famer BJ Penn against Ricardo Lamas in Manila.

On November 5, FOX Sports 1 will air The Ultimate Fighter Latin America Finale card from Mexico City, an event that will see Tony Ferguson battle Rafael Dos Anjos in the headlining bout.

That card will set the stage for UFC 205 on November 12, as the UFC holds its historic first event in New York City's Madison Square Garden.


But the promotion is just getting warmed up, as the UFC will hold two events on Saturday, November 19, first at the SSE Arena in Belfast, Northern Ireland, and then in Brazil at a site to be announced.

Australia will then see world-class UFC action on Sunday, November 27 (airing November 26 in the United States), with a Fight Night card that will take place at Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne.

All of this sets up a December to remember, with five events scheduled for the month, starting with the TUF 24 Finale in Las Vegas on December 3.

New York state will get its second UFC event on Friday, December 9, as UFC Fight Night will land at the Times Union Center in Albany.

The next night, on Saturday, December 10, UFC 206 will air live on Pay-Per-View from Air Canada Centre in Toronto.

The traditional year-end FOX card will then get fans at the Golden 1 Center in Sacramento on their feet and cheering on December 17, and finally, 2016 will take a bow in the UFC's hometown of Las Vegas on Friday, December 30 with UFC 207 at T-Mobile Arena.
