Tonight’s UFC 266 fight card will feature two title fights and a special five-round middleweight bout all on the PPV main card on ESPN+.
The UFC Featherweight Championship will be on the line when Alexander Volkanovski defends his title against Brian Ortega in the main event. The co-main event will feature champion Valentina Shevchenko in a flyweight title fight against Lauren Murphy.
But fans are seemingly most excited for the return of Nick Diaz who is set to make his way back to the octagon for the first time since January 2015. Diaz will face Robbie Lawler in a rematch from UFC 47 almost 17 years ago and will be contested over five rounds instead of the usual three for a non-title, non-main event fight.
The pay-per-view section of the main card begins with two exciting fights with one at heavyweight between Curtis Blaydes and Jairzinho Rozenstruik taking place after Jessica Andrade vs. Cynthia Calvillo opens up the PPV.
Because UFC 266 is a special pay-per-view event, the only way to watch every fight live is by ordering the fights via the ESPN website. Fans can order the event here and watch every UFC 266 fight live tonight on
