The ordering process for Ultimate Fighting Championship pay-per-views has changed: UFC 243 is only available on ESPN+ in the U.S.
The Ultimate Fighting Championship on Saturday will head to Melbourne, Australia, for UFC 243. Fittingly, the event goes down at Marvel Stadium.
In the main event, the middleweight title will be on the line as champion Robert Whittaker will return to the Octagon for the first time since UFC 225 in June of 2018. He is also looking for his first official title defense. He will be taking on the interim middleweight champion Israel Adesanya, who is a spectacular 17-0 and 6-0 in the UFC.
The UFC 243 main card airs live on pay-per-view at 10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT, while the prelims are on at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on ESPN 2, and the early prelims at 6:45 p.m. ET/3:45 p.m. PT on ESPN Plus.
