UFC 265

No. 2-ranked contender, Derrick Lewis, will collide with undefeated striking sensation and No. 3-seeded Ciryl Gane for the interim Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Heavyweight title in the ESPN+streamed pay-per-view (PPV) main event of UFC 265, which will take place inside Toyota Center in Houston, Texas, on Sat., Aug. 7, 2021. The winner of the colossal 265-pound showdown will earn a future fight against incumbent champion, Francis Ngannou, to unify the belts later this year. In UFC 265's re-worked co-main event, former UFC Featherweight champion, Jose Aldo, will face off with No. 8-ranked Pedro Munhoz in a Bantamweight bout that's all but guaranteed to spark fireworks. We'll stockpile all the real-time UFC 265 updates, odds, start time, tickets, weigh ins, predictions, previews, video highlights, press conferences, winners, losers and much more from "Space City" right here before, during and well after the live show concludes.
