"The UFC's 2014 schedule is rounding into shape.

Appearing on FOX Sports live Wednesday night, UFC president Dana White indicated the company will run 35 events next year.

The company also formally announced the dates and location for two events early in the year: UFC on FOX 10 will be held at Chicago's United Center on Saturday, Jan. 25, marking the third straight year the company will hold their January UFC on FOX event in the venue. Then on Saturday, Feb. 22, UFC 170 will be contested at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas.

No bouts were announced for the cards.

The company also broke down the plan for event airings: There will be 14 cards on FOX Sports 1; 13 on pay-per-view, and four apiece on the FOX network and FOX Sports 2.

"We're looking to go to Mexico, go back to Chicago, Vegas, we're going everywhere like we always do," White said."

So ridiculous. Diluting the product and over saturating the brand. Its nice to get together once a month with friends and watch the fights.....not try to plan every week and a half and trying to keep up with all the divisions and fights and trying to figure out who has beat who. THe cards are starting to run together bad enough as it is. I cant remember who fought who and win anymore. Dana and the Fertittas are greedy bitches. Give us better cards instead of these 2 or 3 interesting fights and a bunch of fights that are full of guys no one knows.

Sounds okay 17ish saturdays free next year.

I wonder how many Wednesday fight nights they are going to run.

Too much in my opinion.

And what unlucky souls are going to be put on FS2? People have a hard time remembering as-is that FS1 exists.

Dont understand how anyone could view this as a bad thing. If the lower tier fighters cant fight how do we find out about them. This is the perfect time to make a staement as an up and coming fighter or and unknown fighter. The more events the more opportunity to be seen and get noticed. This is only good for the sport, in my opinion.

I-ya,
I against I,
flesh of my flesh,
and mind of my mind,
two of a kind but one won't survive,
my images reflect in the enemies eye,
and his images reflect in mine the same time

MosDef " I against I"

Totally agree. Complaining that its too much, when you are free to watch whichever events you fancy, makes no sense.

Heres an idea. Dont watch the ones you consider a bit rubbish. Pretend they didnt even happen. Then it'll be just like old times with less events.

I watch at least one MMA promotion a week. The UFC is the top of the food chain, so I hope they keep pumping out shows. I love it since all I really watch is sports.
