Start Time, Fight Card, UFC 287 Live Stream Info

Live from Miami-Dade Arena, Alex Pereira defends his UFC Middleweight title against former champ Israel Adesanya at UFC 287!

A UFC 281 rematch will headline tonight’s show when Pereira (7-1) and Adesanya (23-2) once again square off in the octagon. Alex defeated Israel back in November of 2022 with a fifth-round TKO to capture the middleweight title. The loss was only the second of Adesanya’s UFC career, with the fighter first tasting the sting of defeat at the hands of Jan Błachowicz at UFC 259. Will Pereira make it two in a row, or can Israel regain the middleweight belt? Time will tell.

Also on the UFC 287 card, Gilbert Burns battles Jorge Masvidal, Rob Font takes on Adrian Yanez, and Kevin Holland and Santiago Ponzinibbio will collide under the bright lights of Miami-Dade Arena. Good fight, good night.
