UFC 38, often referred to as The Brawl at Royal Albert Hall, was the first mixed martial arts event to be held by the UFC in England, and the first event to be held by the UFC outside of the United States since UFC 29, which had been held in Japan.


In the main event of the evening, Welterweight Champion Matt Hughes defended his title in a rematch with Carlos Newton, finishing the colorful “Ronin” with strikes near the end of the fourth round. In other action, English journeyman fighter Ian Freeman finished future Heavyweight Champion Frank Mir with strikes in the first round.
