UFC 250 Nunes vs Spencer Start Time

The UFC 250 main card starts at 10 p.m. Eastern (7 p.m. Pacific | 2 a.m. GMT).
Prelim matches have been going on for a few hours, having starting at 6 p.m. Eastern, with the second set at 8 p.m. Eastern.

Are you watching? UFC 250 live streams went live earlier, and it's almost time for Nunes vs Spencer. This top-billed match has the most on the line, leading to either the continuation of Nunes' champ-champ double-title reign, or Felicia "Feenom" Spencer taking the featherweight title from the Lioness in her first defense.

Yes, the big story tonight is if Spencer can take a win over Nunes. While Spencer is a legit challenger in her own right (as a former Invicta FC Featherweight champion, who holds blackbelts in Brazillian Jiu Jitsu and Taekwondo), the champ is on a 10 fight winning streak.

Nunes (19-4-0) is also simply the bigger name, as she shocked the world and etched herself into the books by taking less than a minute to silence the too-talkative Ronda Rousey, and send her packing to the WWE. Spencer (8-1-0), however, may have fewer fights to her name, but her sole loss was a notedly valiant effort against Cris Cyborg.

Right before that match, Raphael Assuncao vs. Cody "No Love" Garbrandt looks to be a bantamweight battle to see who can move up in the rankings. Assuncao is 5th-ranked in the division, with 10 wins by submission to his name, while Garbrandt is 9th ranked. Both are on the heels of recent L's, and looking to gain some traction.
