So… We at The Scrap got you covered!

Grab your favorite beverages, gather your friends, and get ready for an unforgettable night of action-packed bouts. This article presents you with the official unofficial UFC 293 Drinking Game. Read about the set of rules and guidelines that will turn your fight night into a fun one.

Disclaimer: Please drink responsibly, and do not exceed your personal alcohol limits. Ensure you and your friends have a safe and enjoyable experience.

Setting Up

Before we dive into the rules, make sure you’re well-prepared:

  1. Gather Your Supplies: You’ll need a TV or streaming device to watch the fights, an ESPN+ account, your favorite alcoholic beverages (or non-alcoholic if you prefer), and DoorDash on deck to order some munchies.
  2. Designate a Referee: Choose someone to act as the referee who will ensure the rules are followed and distribute drinks when necessary.

The Rules

The UFC 293 Drinking Game is designed to be both fun and engaging without encouraging excessive drinking. Be mindful of your alcohol consumption, and feel free to modify the rules to suit your preferences. See some potential rules your house can adopt to create the perfect UFC drinking game:

  1. Fighter Walkouts: Take A Sip whenever a fighter makes their entrance into the Octagon. Bonus Sips if the fighter is making their UFC debut.
  2. Knockdowns: Whenever a fighter gets knocked down, take A Shot or A Sip of your current drink. If the fight ends in a knockout, everyone Finishes their drink.
  3. Submission Attempts: Take A Sip every time a fighter attempts a deep submission. If they successfully submit their opponent, the closest person to the bathroom must take Two Sips.
  4. Takedowns: Every time a fighter successfully executes a takedown, take A Sip.
  5. Split Decision: If a fight goes to a split decision, everyone must take A Sip. These moments can be tense, so you might need a drink to calm your nerves.
  6. Round Ends: Take A Sip at the end of each round. Take Two Sips if a fighter was saved by the bell from getting finished.
  7. Upset Alert: If an underdog fighter wins, everyone takes A Shot. Upsets are a rarity in UFC, so this rule can add some excitement to the game.
  8. Fighter Tattoos: Before each fight, if a fighter has tattoos the person closest to the TV will have to spell a fighters name. If they spell correctly, they get to assign A Sip to someone else. If they spell wrong, take A Sip yourself.

UFC 293-Specific Rules

  1. PPV Commentary: If Jon Anik giggles at all, take A Sip. Take A Sip every time UFC mentions Laura Sanko making history.
  2. UFC 5 Promo: Take A Sip every time the announce team promotes or talks about UFC 5.
  3. The Shoey Rule: Whenever someone is shown doing a shoey, the referee selects who needs to Finish their drink.
  4. Main Event Madness: Before the main event of the evening, take Two Sips to ensure that the climax of the event is filled with adrenaline and excitement.
    • Take A Sip every time Sean Strickland swears in the lead up, during video packages, or post + pre-fight interviews.
    • Take A Sip every time Israel Adesanya showboats before, during, or after the fight.

Remember, you don’t have to adopt all the rules, just the ones you think the homies will have fun with. It’s always a fantastic way to make fight night even more memorable and enjoyable. Remember to drink responsibly and stay hydrated with water throughout the evening. It’s all about having fun, enjoying the fights, and sharing some quality time with friends or fellow UFC fans.

May the best fighter—and drinker—win!
