The early fights are underway for the UFC 252 PPV event over on ESPN with a night of bruising action ahead of us. If you're yet to get your viewing options sorted for this UFC live stream, we'll help you get your UFC PPV arranged in just a few short minutes, so you can get stuck in.  

You needn't miss a single punch, kick, elbow, knee or grapple tonight as the Heavyweight Championship belt is up for grabs atop the main card with Miocic vs Cormier 3 in what looks set to be a thrilling conclusion to their trilogy.

Fight Island is taking a break as the action returns to the UFC Apex arena in Las Vegas today. Fight fans have been enjoying renewed UFC live stream action for a few months now as it was one of the first sports to stage a comeback after the world ground to a halt over Covid-19. And it would seem restrictions in Nevada have eased off a little in order to allow the UFC athletes back into town. This is a UFC PPV live stream you won't want to miss.

The main event bout has been billed as a trilogy finale and with Miocic and Cormier each notching up a win against each other, this really is a winner takes all from this apparent best of three series with Miocic's Heavyweight belt up for grabs.

Sean O’Malley vs Marlon Vera is the penultimate event of the night with a lot of buzz surrounding the very on form O'Malley. More to the point, will he be busting out the rainbow cornrows hair cut again? Nobody wants to lose to that and Vera will be looking to make up for his last fight which ended in defeat back in May.

Elsewhere on the UFC 252 fight card there are a couple of other bouts you'll certainly want to tune in for. Like the heavyweight clash between Junior dos Santos and Jairzinho Rozenstruik. Record-breaking (most lightweight division wins) Jim Miller will be entering the Octagon versus Vinc Pichel too.

All of these match-ups and plenty more will be available in the UFC 252 live stream available on ESPN's pay-per-view event. So how do you get access to all of the action? You can find out more below:
