Events and shows
Mixed martial arts promotions put on numerous events and shows throughout a year, with several promotions and organizations airing their events on pay-per view or on network television. These events are presented in a number of different formats, with preliminary bouts, main card bouts and, sometimes, championship fights to crown a new champion within a specific weight class. Other events play host to tournament-style fights where a pool of mixed martial artists will fight each other in elimination bouts, where the last two remaining fighters will be awarded the title of tournament winner.

UFC 79: Nemesis was a mixed martial arts event held by the Ultimate Fighting Championship, that took place on December 29, 2007 at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. The main events featured the long anticipated fight between Chuck Liddell and Wanderlei Silva, as well as the highly anticipated rubber match between former UFC Welterweight Champions Georges St-Pierre and Matt Hughes. Additionally, PRIDE light heavyweight sensation Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou made his UFC debut against the undefeated Lyoto Machida. The main event was originally to pit The Ultimate Fighter 6 coaches Matt Serra and Matt Hughes for Serra's UFC Welterweight Championship, which Serra won at UFC 69: Shootout on April 7, 2007 in an upset victory over Georges St-Pierre. Serra, however, withdrew from the fight due to a back injury, and was replaced by St-Pierre; because of this the fight between St-Pierre and Hughes was made to be for the Interim Welterweight title.
