Video: Considering Noche UFC success, should UFC embrace more themed events?

Noche UFC officially marked the arrival of Mexican fighting culture to mixed martial arts.

This past Saturday, Noche UFC went down on Mexican Independence Day, Sept. 16, in Las Vegas, with a card full of Mexican and Mexican-American fighters, including women’s flyweight champ Alexa Grasso retaining her title by fighting Valentina Shevchenko to a split draw.

Controversy in the headliner aside, Noche UFC delivered in both action fights and a rocking atmosphere as T-Mobile Arena was packed with fans flying Mexican flags to celebrate the event.
