UFC's year-round schedule never truly slows down as the organization hosts more than 30 events every year. And 2019 is no different for the leader in mixed martial arts. Fresh off UFC 243 in Melbourne which saw Israel Adesanya stake his claim to the middleweight title with a TKO over Robert Whittaker, the UFC schedule marches forward with nine events left before the end of 2019.

The next stop takes us to Singapore for a grappler's delight as Ben Askren takes on Demian Maia in a welterweight main event. Askren is coming off that violent TKO loss against Jorge Masvidal in July while Maia has won two straight following a three-fight losing skid.

Then in November, the "BMF" title will be on the line when Nate Diaz makes his return to New York City to take on Masvidal in a five-round main event at UFC 244 from Madison Square Garden.

There's plenty more enticing main events and co-main events to get ready for as 2019 starts to draw to a close.
