Despite being the second numbered card of 2021, UFC 258 will not be a PPV and therefore, will be available for fans to watch at no additional cost.

Ahead of the exciting card which is set to take place at the UFC’s Apex Centre in Nevada, we have given you all the information you’ll need.

How can I watch in the UK?

UK fight fans will be able to tune in to the action from 23:30 on Saturday 13, with the event’s early prelims shown live on UFC Fight Pass.

The promotion’s prelims are set to begin at 01:00 (Sunday 14) and will be shown live on BT Sport 1 (also available on UFC Fight Pass).

The event’s main-card will also be shown live on BT Sport 1, with proceedings expected to kick-off at 03:00.

What time will the Usman vs Burns fight start?

When it comes to live sport, it’s always impossible to go by an exact schedule, however, assuming the event’s production runs with no delays, the main-event bout should kick off at around 05:00.
