UFC 255 date and time

UFC 255's main card begins at 10 p.m. ET on Saturday, November 21. The preliminary card started at 6:30 p.m. ET, and the second prelim card begins at 8 p.m..
The event is live from UFC APEX in Las Vegas, NV.

And it's time! The UFC 255 live stream is here to deliver a packed night of flyweight fights from Las Vegas. At the top of the card we've got two championship fights, with #3-ranked Jennifer Maia taking on the women's flyweight champ Valentina "Bullet" Shevchenko, and #4-ranked Alex Perez gunning for the men's flyweight champ Deiveson “Daico” Figueiredo.

Interestingly enough, both champs are expected to retain — and both by TKO. Shevchenko is the more dominant champ, as only Amanda Nunes has had a shot at dethroning her, and even then it didn't go that way.

With only three losses to her record, Shevchenko is definitely a "bullet" that tears through most obstacles. Some worry she might not perform to her highest standards, but instead fight at Maia's level. 

Perez's endurance is the main key in that match, as Figueiredo may not have the speed of his younger years, but will definitely put a bruising on the challenger. And endure he may. But ... I wouldn't make that bet.

Here's everything you need to know to watch UFC 255 live streams online:
