UFC 278 takes place tonight at 7pm ET / 10pm PT (or 3am BST). However, if you don’t want to miss a moment, the early prelims will start at 3pm PT / 6pm ET (that’s 11pm BST). We’ll show you how to watch UFC 278 from anywhere in the world.
Tonight at UFC 278 there will be another welterweight gold fight as Leon Edwards looks to take the belt from Kamura Usman. The two first faced each other in 2015, shortly after the Nigerian Nightmare signed with the Ultimate Fighting Championship, so this long-awaited rematch is sure to be one for the history books. Usman remains undefeated within the UFC with an impressive 15-win streak, easily making him one of the greatest fighters the organization has ever had. One thing is for sure, Rocky is certainly the underdog in this fight.
Of course, that’s not to take away from Leon Edwards’ long list of accomplishments. Rocky has only lost twice within the company, to Claudio Silva and Usman himself early in his professional MMA career. Given that the former was unstoppable at the time and the latter has yet to be mined, it’s still a commendable achievement. Edwards enters the Octagon a year after his last appearance after a decision win over the hard-hitting Nate Diaz, so tonight’s result could be a lot closer than expected.
Of course, the main event headlining fight at UFC 278 is far from the only spectacle on offer. There’s also the middleweight bout between Paulo Costa and Luke Rockhold to look forward to. Both men break into 2022 with two losses apiece, with Borrachinha being defeated by Adesanya and Vettori and Rockhold being KO’d twice by Yoel Romero and Jan Blachowicz respectively. Regardless of the past, a man will leave Vivint Arena with a win.
Of course, there’s a lot more to come at UFC 278, including the return of José Aldo and a heavyweight bout between Marcin Tybura and Alexandr Romanov still to come. This is a pay-per-view event not to be missed.
