Live Stream: Watch UFC 281 Live Here

UFC returns to New York’s iconic Madison Square Garden tonight, with a middleweight title fight between familiar foes Israel Adesanya and Alex Pereira at UFC 281. The two fighters faced each other in the Glory of Heroes kickboxing promotion prior to them making the switch to UFC, with Pereira coming out as winner in both meetings in decisive style. Read on to discover how to watch a UFC 281 live stream online from anywhere today.

Since then, Adesanya has gone on to become one of MMA’s biggest names. Having claimed the UFC 185lb crown in 2019, he remains unbeaten at middleweight since joining the promotion. Pereira meanwhile only signed up with the UFC late last year, but his glittering reputation in Glory of Heroes has seen him fast-tracked to this title challenge after just three successful fights at this level.

Adesanya is well used to rematches – his last three appearances in the UFC have been follow-up fights against recent opponents, but this third against a bogeyman from his past may be his toughest Octagon showdown yet.

Alongside the headline act, UFC 281’s card also sees Carla Esparza makes her first defence of her straw weight title against Chinese contender Weili Zhang in the co-main event. Follow our guide below as we explain how to watch a UFC 281 live stream, and see Adesanya vs Pereira and the rest in the Octagon today.
