The UFC has launched its partnership with the Esports Fight League (ESFL), kicking off two tournament series to determine the best EA Sports UFC 4 players on the planet. The first partnered event happened this past Sunday, with more to come soon.
The tournaments, which feature more than 30 players duking it out to become the inaugural UFC esports champions, will take place over four weeks during December and January. The match-ups air on the UFC Twitch channel Sundays at 3 p.m. ET / 12 p.m. PT and include players from both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. If you head to that channel during non-tournament hours, you can expect to find classic fight footage, original streams starring fighters, and video podcasts.
