UFC 259 returns to Sin City this weekend for a huge night of MMA action that includes three title fights, headlined by Jan Blachowicz defending his light heavyweight championship against middleweight titleholder Israel Adesanya.
Nigerian-born Adesanya (20-0), who calls himself ‘The Last Stylebender’, is tipped to be the next big UFC superstar. Indeed, he’s already picked up the $50,000 Performance of the Night bonus five times and Fight of the Night two times.
Blachowicz – Poland’s first male UFC champion – believes he can cause a major upset though. The Prince of Cieszyn, best known for KO’ing former middleweight champ Luke Rockhold in July 2019, says he “doesn’t care about being the underdog” and predicts a win by KO in the second round.
Prior to the headline fight, dual women’s champion Amanda Nunes puts her featherweight belt on the line versus Megan Anderson. Nunes (20-4) is regarded as one of the greatest UFC fighters of all time having won 11 consecutive fights with six coming via stoppage, so make sure you get a UFC 259 live stream sorted out early doors.
If that wasn’t enough, men’s bantamweight champ Petr Yan (15-1) will lock horns with number one-ranked Aljamain Sterling (19-3) in what could be a thriller.
The prelims get underway at 1am and the main event at 3am. Anyone in the UK with a BT Sport subscription can watch all of action for free including the main card. Otherwise, here’s how to find a UFC 259 live stream for free from anywhere in the world.

Even if you have subscribed to the relevant UFC rights holders, you won’t be able to access these streaming services when outside your own country. The service will know your location based on your IP address, and will automatically block your access.
