The UFC 263 live stream is tonight, with the early prelims kicking off at 6 p.m. ET and main prelims at 8 p.m. ET.
The main card, though, is at 10 p.m. ET.
As for the main event? Approximately 12 a.m. ET.
The event will be broadcast from the Gila River Arena, in Glendale.

The UFC 263 live stream is here, and it’s headlined by a rematch for the Middleweight title. Israel Adesanya puts his gold on the line against against Marvin Vettori. And the champ only won by split decision last time, so this rematch isn't so cut and dry. 

Back when Adesanya (20-1) first defeated Vettori (17-3-1) — which also happened in Glendale, oddly enough — the fight was notably split between two stages. At first, Adesanya had the match won when the two were on their feet, but Vettori managed to bring the fight to the mat, and almost had his way with a solid ground game.

Adesanya is currently the favorite, at -286. Vettori (+225) is definitely the underdog. 

And right before that match, we have Deiveson Figueiredo putting his flyweight gold on the line against Brandon Moreno. The champ only made weight at the very last second, and is the -250 favorite. Moreno is at +195.
