UFC 254: Khabib vs. Gaethje Live Stream

The UFC’s second stint on Fight Island culminates with UFC 254, featuring a title unification bout at lightweight. Fittingly, the region’s top star, Khabib Nurmagomedov, will get to compete at a time more palatable to his fan base. That means a break from the usual UFC broadcast time optimized to North American audiences, so U.S.-based audiences will see the crowning of the true undisputed king of the lightweights well in time for dinner.

How to watch UFC 254

UFC 254 is separated into three portions: the early prelims, the prelims, and the main card. The early prelims are only available to UFC Fight Pass subscribers, while the prelims will air on ESPN+ and the ESPN2 cable channel. The main card, meanwhile, is an ESPN+ exclusive pay-per-view event.

Khabib Nurmagomedov makes his return to the Octagon for the first time in a little over a year in a lightweight title fight against the “Human Highlight” Justin Gaethje in a matinee pay-per-view from Fight Island in Abu Dhabi. 

The main event pits the reigning lightweight titleholder against the interim champion in a unification bout. This wasn’t the bout everyone expected when it was announced Tony Ferguson and Gaethje would meet for the interim championship, but the former World Series of Fighting star was brilliant in the upset in May. 

The matchup is a classic grappler vs. striker pairing. Nurmagomedov’s pressure wrestling is the best in the sport, while Gaethje’s power and volume striking are matched by his incredible durability and toughness.
