UFC 266 Starttid i Storbritannia: When is Volkanovski vs Ortega and how can I watch it tonight?
The card also sees Nick Diaz return after six years out, for a rematch with Robbie Lawler that is 17 years in the making

The featherweight title is on the line in the main event of UFC 266 this evening, som Alexander Volkanovski defends his belt against Brian Ortega i Las Vegas.

Ortega (15-1) came up short in December 2018 as he first attempted to win the gold, suffering his first career loss as he was dominated on the feet by then-champion Max Holloway for four rounds. A year later, it was Australian Volkanovski (22-1) who ended Holloway’s reign by outpointing the fan favourite, before doing so again in July 2020 – though many fans disagreed with the judges’ scorecards.

Ortega recovered from his devastating defeat by Holloway to beat Chan Sung Jung via decision last December, with the jiu jitsu expert producing a striking masterclass over 25 minutter. Nå, the 30-year-old Californian goes for UFC gold again, with Volkanovski defending his belt for the first time since his rematch with Holloway, following the headliners’ time spent as opposing coaches on the Ultimate Fighter TV show.

In the co-main event at the T-Mobile Arena, Valentina Shevchenko (21-3) defends her women’s flyweight belt against Lauren Murphy (15-4), samtidig som, elsewhere on the card, Nick Diaz – older brother of Nate – returns after six years out to fightRobbie Lawler in a middleweight bout.

The pair squared off 17 År siden, with Diaz (26-9) knocking out fellow American Lawler (28-15) i andre runde.
