There's still plenty of time to watch a UFC 271 live stream tonight as the main card events have yet to start. We've got everything laid out for you to catch the Adesanya vs Whittaker PPV online as they compete for the Middleweight title.

The main card Middleweight title bout between Israel Adesanya and Robert Whittaker is set to take place around 10pm ET / 7pm PT / 3am GMT. As UFC 271 is a PPV event in the US, you may as well check out the earlier fights on the card too. The early prelim fights began at 6pm ET / 3pm PT / 11pm GMT. We'll tell you how to watch UFC 271 online in the US first, but we also have local options for the UK, Europe, and Australia further down the page. US links for the UFC PPV prices on ESPN+ are directly below if you just want to get straight to it.

The main event sees Israel Adesanya aiming to defend his Middleweight title for the fourth time. While undefeated in his division, he did pick up his one and only defeat in March last year to Jan Błachowicz when he tried to move up a weight class and had a shot at the Light Heavyweight title. He recovered from that defeat and was able to successfully defend his Middleweight title a few months later, so he's very much still the man to beat. Whittaker will be all too aware Adesanya has beaten him before and hoping his strong wrestling game can disrupt Adesanya's striking ability.
