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 244 in New York that saw Jorge Masvidal take down Nate Diaz for the 'BMF' title after the doctor would not allow Diaz to continue, the UFC schedule continues on.

The next stop takes us to Washington D.C. for a heavyweight main event. Originally expected to be Alistair Overeem vs. Walt Harris, the fight will now feature Overeem vs. Jair Rozenstruik after Harris withdrew from the bout as he continues the search for his missing stepdaughter.

Then in December, one of the most anticipated rivalry bouts hits Las Vegas when welterweight champ Kamaru Usman takes on Colby Covington at UFC 245. the two have shared bad blood for the better part of a year and will finally lock horns inside the Octagon.

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