Everything you need to know about UFC and Memorial Day weekend MMA events.

Memorial Day weekend is upon us. Many celebrate thde long weekend staring on Friday, May 26 through Monday, May 29. For this reason, we'll consider any fights on that four day span as Memorial Day events.

On Saturday there's no UFC event. The biggest MMA promotion has taken a rare BYE weekend after hosting Power Slap 2 on Wednesday.

But if you are looking for MMA, you will not be entirely out of luck.

Legacy Fighting Championship, which is considered a major feeder league to the UFC, is hosting an event on Saturday in Caraguatatuba, São Paulo, Brazil.

The event is headlined by an LFA interim heavyweight fight between Rodolfo Bellato and Acácio dos Santos. The entire card is all Brazilian fighters and look to highlight the talent from that region.

ONE Championship is also hosting its Friday night fights which feature Muay Thai, MMA, and kickboxing.

There are also a few other smaller regional shows, which might take more time finding streams for, but could be watched, if you try hard enough.

You can find those on the Tapology fight calendar.

UFC returns on June 3 for a Fight Night event headlined by No. 3 ranked Kai Kara France (24-10-0) and No. 7 Amir Albazi (16-1-0).
