UFC 256 time and date
UFC 260 will begin with the early preliminary card at 6:15 p.m. ET Saturday March 27. The UFC 260 main prelim card will begin at 8 p.m. ET. The UFC 260 main card is at 10 p.m. ET, with the main event likely to start around 12:15a ET. The event will be broadcast from the UFC APEX facilities in Las Vegas.
The UFC 260 live stream is coming in hot — and if ever a main event fight had the chance to live up to the hype, it’s this one. Stipe Miocic will look to defend his UFC Heavyweight title for a second time against Francis Ngannou. These two fought it out two years ago in UFC 220, with Miocic winning by unanimous decision.
In their first meeting, Miocic was the underdog despite being the reigning UFC Champion and odds makers were nearly proven right in the early goings. The champ took a barrage of punches from Ngannou in the first round before settling in, countering and getting Ngannou on the ground where he couldn’t use his 83-inch reach. Miocic would go on to blow away his opponent in total strikes, 208-34.
Since that title fight, both fighters have been busy. Miocic has fought Daniel Cormier three times winning 2, while Ngannou has gotten back to his first-round dominance notching first round knockouts in four fights of his last six fights.
The main card also includes another title fight as UFC Featherweight Champion Alexander Volkanovski will defend his belt against Brian Ortega as a co-main event. On the early preliminary card Gillian Robertson takes on Miranda Maverick in a fight that was supposed to go down in UFC 258, but Robertson was sick with a non-COVID related illness.
