The Ultimate Fighting Challenge (UFC) is a venue for American mixed martial arts (MMA) to show governed fights. UFC is, essentially, a promotion group that puts these fights on. There are only a handful of Denver sports bars that televise these events, as the fights are usually pay-per view and are not as popular as mainstream sporting events. If you’re in need of some knock-down, drag-out, smack-down fighting and don’t feel like shelling out $50 to catch the event at home, check out these top Denver spots to catch a fight.

Located on Monaco and Evans, Milo’s Sports Tavern is a family owned tavern that is known for its incredibly tasty chicken wings.

With 30 televisions and a unique special every night, Milo’s Sports Tavern is a favorite for locals and they are very welcoming to newbies. The bar is so welcoming, in fact, you’re invited to bring the kids with you. The kitchen is open until 1 a.m. and the food is excellent – just like the people.
