2019 may be coming to a close, but the UFC is not taking its foot off the gas when it comes to the New Year, as the promotion announced several major bouts coming to an arena near you in the first four months of 2020.

In addition to championship bouts and main events already announced for cards in Raleigh, HoustonRio Rancho and Auckland, events in Las Vegas and Brooklyn were made official, featuring some of the sport's biggest stars.

On January 18, the year kicks off at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas with an event featuring the return of Irish superstar Conor McGregor in a welterweight bout against Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone.
