What Channel is UFC on Tonight? Catch UFC 260 Live

Wondering what channel UFC 260 is on? With ten fights on the card and a heavyweight championship contest as the headliner, this high-stakes pay-per-view event is going to be one for the ages. It’s happening tonight with the preliminary bouts starting at 7:30 PM ET, and if you’re looking to watch UFC 260: Miocic vs. Ngannou 2 live tonight, you’ll need to sign up for ESPN+ to watch the pay-per-view bouts. You’ve got some other options for watching the preliminary fights, though. Here’s what you need to know.

The entire UFC 260 fight card is airing on ESPN+, but only the main card (featuring the headliner bout between Stipe Miocic and Francis Ngannou) is the pay-per-view portion of the event. Every UFC PPV is broadcast exclusively via ESPN’s premium streaming service, meaning that for this part of the show, ESPN+ is your only option. The preliminary matches can be streamed on ESPN+ as well; however, you can also watch the four prelims on the ESPN TV channel and the single early prelim on UFC Fight Pass.

Of course, the main draw at UFC 260 is the rematch and championship bout between the two best active heavyweight fighters in the world of mixed martial arts. This is not the first time Stipe Miocic and Francis Ngannou have met in the Octagon, though: The pair went fist-to-fist once before at UFC 220 in 2018. There, both fighters went the distance with Miocic winning by decision to defend his title. However, he lost the championship to Daniel Cormier in his next fight, which kicked off a trilogy between Miocic and Cormier to determine who was the true heavyweight champ.

Miocic won his belt back in his rematch and then defended it against Cormier in their third and final bout, cementing his status as the world’s best heavyweight fighter. Ngannou is in a good position to snatch that crown away. The French-Cameroonian fighter has steadily climbed the ranks and now sits just below Miocic on the UFC heavyweight roster, and with Cormier now retired, it’s safe to say that if Ngannou can’t unseat the champion, nobody else is likely to any time soon.

The UFC 260 main card, as with all UFC pay-per-view events, is airing exclusively on ESPN+ at 10 PM ET tonight. The prelims will also be broadcast on the ESPN TV channel while the early preliminary fight can be watched on UFC Fight Pass, but since the entire event is airing on ESPN+ and you need that to view the main card anyway, your best bet is to sign up now so you can stream it all on your web browser, mobile device, smart TV, or gaming console.
