MMA & UFC Data Feeds – Free Help For Publishers

  • MMA Facts Team

MMA has an incredible, independent, and knowledgeable content-creation community. This community’s strength has supported the sport’s growth from a niche combat sport to one of the most revered and celebrated in the world. MMA Facts wants to support other independent MMA blogs and publishers to help us fulfil our joint mission of making the sport as accessible as possible to new fans.

If you’re in the business of creating great MMA content, we’ll handle the administration of keeping your Schedule, Results and Rankings pages updated hourly for free.

Why Is This Data Important?

All sports have widely available key data points, like schedules, rankings, and athlete data. MMA is split between the competing interests of many promoters and broadcasters across different continents, and the MMA landscape can shift several times in the same day. 

As publishers and hardcore fans, we are so close to the industry that it’s hard for us to appreciate how difficult it is for someone curious about the sport to start following MMA. 

Having these cornerstones of what’s happening, what happened, and who’s best at the world level is the foundation of creating fans who follow the sport outside the mega events or prominent personalities.

It’s Important To Your Audience Ambitions Too

You’ve worked hard for a loyal following, grinding out content constantly for years to entertain and inform them. With this data, you can provide them with even more content and give them more reason to return to your site and platform. That will help increase your traffic, following and community loyalty to support your ambitions without any more effort or maintenance overhead.

What Data Is Available?

Cards: Import individual card details into your pages and have them update automatically. This helps create or complement hubs around your MMA event content, like previews, predictions and breakdowns.

Schedule: A curated list of dates, venue, undercards, TV and title details of every major event from UFC, Bellator, PFL, One Championship, Rizin, Cage Warriors, LFA and BFA, with more to come later in 2024.

Results: Our scheduled feed ticks over with the result details added for every event.

Rankings: The rankings for each weight from UFC and Bellator 

News: An RSS feed of curated stories from MMA’s most prominent and respected news outlets.

All of these are updated hourly and will appear immediately on your site.

Why Use These?

The Admin On Keeping These Updated Is Hard Work

Creating and maintaining a reliable MMA schedule is hard work. You must manage a constant daily stream of new fight announcements, cancellations, broadcasting details, start times, injuries, dates and venue changes. 

It can feel like a part-time job. MMA Facts monitors countless news stories, press releases, and social media accounts to keep on top of everything and create our curated MMA schedule feed.

Results are easier, but they must be updated in the early hours of a weekend.

Rankings are a massive ask, too. You have to create, organise and display an enormous list of names just to maintain a list of the top 15 in every weight division across the major promotions. You also have to check in with them constantly to catch new updates.

MMA Facts has a team constantly maintaining all these. Why not leverage all our hard work for your site?

It’s Free And Easy To Use

We’ve made the data easy to display to your audience.

For publishers using WordPress, we’ve developed a plugin that allows you to install and import the data within seconds. You can use a shortcode to display the data on any page or our WordPress widget to display the abridged data in your sidebar with a link to your main content.

We can also provide custom RSS feeds and solutions for content creators on different platforms to display the data seamlessly.

We’ll even create a custom CSS file for you, to ensure the data display matches your branding and site design as closely as possible.

This isn’t some clunky widget that’s awkwardly crowbarred into your site. We want the data to appear on your site as if it were your own.

Why Is MMA Facts Providing This Data For Free? What’s The Catch?

MMA Facts has been furthering the sport since 2008. Our mission is to provide the sport with as many tools and resources as possible to help connect it with more fans.

We’ll ask you to support us by displaying a small logo at the bottom of the data, with link attribution, to help us build brand recognition and assist with our own mission.

Giving away our data for free isn’t a zero-sum game for us. In the digital age, and with a sport with so much potential, we can all grow 10x bigger as platform and content creators if we work together.
