UFC 218 live stream - Watch ‘Holloway vs Aldo 2’ fights tonight

Find out what channel UFC 218 is on tonight and how you can watch the pay-per-view (PPV) streaming online, at a local bar and/or on your phone.

The complete UFC 218 fight card will air later this evening (Sat., Dec. 2, 2017) on two different stations -- FOX Sports 1 and pay-per-view (PPV) -- as well as online via "Fight Pass" digital network. UFC 218's "Prelims" undercard will begin at 6:15 p.m. online via "Fight Pass" before transitioning to the FOX Sports 1 television station at 8 p.m. ET. Once the UFC 218 undercard is complete inside Little Caesars Arena in Detroit, Mich., the action will pick up on PPV at 10 p.m. ET, starting with a match up between top-ranked women’s Strawweight contenders Tecia Torres (No. 5) and Michelle Waterson (No. 6). Then it's a ridiculous, hard-hitting 155-pound showdown between former Lightweight champion, Eddie Alvarez, taking on the undefeated ex-World Series of Fighting (WSOF) 155-pound roost-ruler, Justin Gaethje. Third from the top of the PPV bill is a pivotal Flyweight scrap between Henry Cejudo and Segio Pettis, both of whom have their sights set on 125-pound division champion, Demetrious Johnson.

Leading UFC 218's charge is the rematch between the two best mixed martial arts (MMA) Featherweight fighters in the world — champion Max Holloway and former 145-pound kingpin, Jose Aldo. The two fighters first collided at UFC 212 this past summer, with Holloway scoring an impressive third-round technical knockout to unify the division championship . Meanwhile, in the co-main event, Heavyweight monsters Alistair Overeem and Francis Ngannou will lock horns in a battle between two of the heaviest hitters in the sport.

UFC 218 is loaded with meaningful and fun fights — it’s going to be great. UFC 218: "Holloway vs. Aldo 2" will cost $59.95 to watch on PPV (exclusions may, and often do, apply based on geographic location).
