When Is the Next UFC Fight? Date, Time, and Schedule

The next UFC pay-per-view is coming up fast, with UFC 269: Oliveira vs. Poirier taking place this Saturday at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. The main card is headlined by a contest for the UFC Lightweight Championship, where freshly crowned champ Charles “Do Bronx” Oliveira will put his belt on the line for the first time. His premiere title defense won’t be an easy one, either, as Oliveira is facing down No. 1-ranked UFC lightweight Dustin “The Diamond” Poirier. Here’s what to know about when (and where) you can watch Oliveira vs. Poirier online live.

There are currently 15 bouts in total slated for UFC 269 and spread across three fight cards. The main card starts at 10 p.m. ET (7 p.m. PT). The headliner is a showdown between UFC Lightweight Champion Charles Oliveira (31-8) and top-ranked lightweight Dustin Poirier (28-6). The lightweight division is one of the most (if not the most) top-heavy rosters in the UFC, and Oliveira and Poirier are both entering the Octagon Saturday following impressive multi-win streaks. Oliveira has not lost a match since 2017 and has racked up nine consecutive victories since then — his most recent win earning him the lightweight belt. Poirier’s last defeat came in 2019 at the hands of now-retired former champ Khabib Nurmagomedov; prior to that, the Diamond has not lost a fight since 2016 and is coming off back-to-back wins over Conor McGregor.

The main card, which features the two championship bouts, is the pay-per-view portion of the show and begins at 10 p.m. ET. If you’re keen to start watching early, the early prelims begin at 6:15 p.m. ET (3:15 p.m. PT), followed by the preliminary card at 8 p.m. ET. You can check out the entire roster of fighters below.
