UFC 251 Fight Island Stream – How to Watch UFC Fight Island on ESPN+

Six months ago, no one would believe you if you told them the UFC’s big summer slugfest would be a concept called Fight Island on a tropical beach in Abu Dhabi.

Incredibly, as the world slowed to a halt in mid-March, Dana White started putting together the puzzle pieces for UFC 251 Fight Island, an impressive PPV cage fight that feels more like Enter The Dragon than an actual sports event. The fights will actually be in an arena / octagon build out starting around 2AM local time, which means the main card should be in full swing by sun-up to cater to TV audiences in the United States.

And we couldn’t be more excited for it.

Tonight the world gets its first glimpse of the concept in action via the UFC Fight Island stream. The card is completely stacked too, including a main event welterweight title fight between divisional champion Kamaru Usman and BMF champion, Jorge “Gamebred” Masvidal. UFC fans also get a coveted featherweight rematch between Alexander Volkanovski and Max Holloway, as well as a fireworks between Petr Yan and Jose Aldo for the vacant UFC bantamweight belt.

In other words, UFC Fight Island is going to be epic.

And ESPN+ is the only place to watch the PPV.

UFC 251 main card start time is 10PM ET / 7PM PT. Usman vs. Masvidal start time is estimated to be around 12:00AM ET / 9:00 PM PT, but to be completely honest – we’re not totally sure what to expect.

Below, our guide for how to watch the UFC 251 Fight Island stream online:
