The opening round for each division in ROAD TO UFC takes place across two days, June 9 and 10 in Singapore, inside the Octagon at the Singapore Indoor Stadium. The semifinals are scheduled to take place later this year, and the finals will be on the prelims of a UFC Fight Night. At that event, each of the four divisions' winners will be awarded a UFC contract.

How ROAD TO UFC Works:

  • Four men’s divisions: flyweight, bantamweight, featherweight, lightweight

  • 8-man brackets for each division

  • Round 1 (quarterfinals)
    • Four fights in each bracket (plus one non-tournament fight, making five fights total per fight card); winners move on to semifinals

  • Round 2 (semifinals)
    • Two fights in each bracket; winners move on to finals 

  • Round 3 (finals)
    • One fight in each bracket taking place on the preliminary card of a UFC Fight Night later this year. Winners will earn a UFC contract
