Milestone Alert! Saturday Marks UFC's 2,000th Fight
 
Cool stat from FightMetric.com:

Quote:

The UFC has held 1,981 fights to date*. That will make the seventh fight at UFC 147, currently scheduled to be Yuri Alcantara vs. Hacran Dias, the 2,000th fight in the promotion's history. Between July 1, 2008 and July 1, 2012, the UFC will have run 1,055 fights, meaning that it will have contested more fights in the last four years than in the preceding 15 years combined.

*FightMetric, like most others, does not count Royce Gracie vs. Harold Howard from UFC 3 to be an official match, despite it being listed on Gracie's record for many years.

So from that quote I got interested in the Royce Gracie match. Went to wikipedia and found this as an interesting aside...

On March 11, 2011 Royce Gracie's profile was added back to ufc.com active fighters list as a middleweight. His manager stated that they were actively negotiating with the UFC for a return to the octagon and said it was just a matter of "getting it nailed down" and that there was plenty of time for it.[20]


Went on the UFC website and sure enough, there he is under the active fighters....interesting.
