The action of UFC’s Fight Island continues! And yes, if you’re not caught up, UFC has an island now...partly to get around current travel restrictions and realistically, partly to use the name ‘Fight Island’. What’s important is that we’ve already seen UFC 251 go down and now, it’s time to catch a UFC Fight Night live stream.

Heading up this weekend’s luxury island mixed martial arts event is Figueiredo vs Benavidez - a fight that’s been expected for a while after Figueiredo had to forfeit their first match due to coming in over the weight restrictions.

A second forfeit was almost announced when Figueriredo tested positive for Covid-19, however a second negative result has him back in the game. And good news too considering Figueiredo vs Benavidez is an excellent leading match for a UFC Fight Night live stream.

Benavidez is a 2x UFC title challenger and is currently tied for the most wins in the division. Figueiredo on the other hand is the #1 ranked Flyweight fighter, currently holding 15 wins by knockout or submission and only one professional loss...his current 3-fight win streak makes him a likely winner for his first championship in this bout.

Look past the title fight and another big match to watch out for is Hermansson vs Gastelum. Hermansson has won 4 of last 5 fights and has 16 wins by knockout or submission and Gasteum is a 3x performance of the night winner and UFC title challenger, with knockout wins over multiple former champions.

Ready to catch all of the action with a UFC Fight Night live stream? We’ve listed everything you need to know about watching it all happen in all of the key countries below.

Like the US, one service has stepped in with exclusive UFC rights in the UK and that's BT. Also like ESPN above, because BT has the exclusive rights, a subscription will mean you never miss a single UFC event if you plan to hold onto it post-Fight Night stream.

You can watch BT Sport using a BT Sport pass which you can score for £25 a month. The great news here is that this pass gets you access to pretty much every BT Sport channel and all of the sporting events throughout the year. 

You can tune in for prelim fights at 11pm on Saturday and the main card will be kicking off a couple of hours later at 1am on Sunday. Way too late at night for you? BT Sport offers spoiler-free replays meaning you don't have to worry about abiding by UFC's incredibly early viewing sessions in the UK. And if you find yourself outside of the UK when it airs, look into using a VPN to watch it.
