The UFC will celebrate a milestone at UFC 123 this Saturday night as it holds the 1,500th fight in its history. The sixth fight on the card will be the big number 1,500, currently scheduled to be Matt Brown vs. Brian Foster.

Previous milestone fights include:

1st Fight: Gerard Gordeau vs. Teila Tuli at UFC 1 - November 12, 1993
500th Fight: Jonathan Goulet vs. Jay Hieron at UFC Fight Night 2 - October 3, 2005
1,000th Fight: Per Eklund vs. Samy Schiavo at UFC 89 - October 18, 2008

It took the UFC nearly 12 years to get the first 500 fights under its belt, three years for the next 500, and just a shade over two years for the third 500 fights. At their current rate, we should be seeing fight number 2,000 around August 2012.

Congratulations to the UFC for their milestone. They're not a perfect company, but they're the best and they keep getting better.
