UFC London 2022: Start time, card, live stream and TV channel

Just four months after the UFC last visited London, mixed martial arts’ flagship promotion returns to the English capital this weekend.

March’s UFC London card broke Fight Night and O2 Arena records, as British fighters shone in front of a raucous crowd in the first edition of the event since 2019. It was also one of the first Fight Nights to have fans present since before the Covid pandemic began, making for a jubilant evening in London.

Tom Aspinall takes on Curtis Blaydes in a heavyweight showdown topping the bill at UFC London this Saturday night at a sold out O2 Arena. Find out how to watch or live stream here.

The wait is finally over as the best night in British MMA rolls around for a second time in four months when UFC London comes to back BT Sport tonight.

March’s historic success will be a tough act to follow after one of the most memorable evenings of action in the Octagon we’ve ever had on British soil.

But with nine Brits on the card once again tonight including Tom Aspinall, Paddy Pimblett and Molly McCann, it’s going to be another another unmissable event – and it all goes down exclusively live across the BT Sport network.

Tom Aspinall tops the bill in his second straight five-round assignment as he takes on fellow heavyweight contender Curtis Blaydes in the main event.

Aspinall produced the best performance of his fledgling career last time out as he made light work of Alexander Volkov – but the Salford fighter faces another huge leap in competition in the form of perennial title hopeful Blaydes tomorrow night.

Swedish middleweight Jack Hermansson takes co-main honours as he faces late replacement Chris Curtis following Darren Till’s injury-enforced withdrawal earlier this month.

Liverpool will still be well represented on the main card with rising star Paddy Pimblett looking to blow the roof off the O2 Arena once again when he takes on Jordan Leavitt in a lightweight contest not to be missed.

What time does UFC London 2022 start?

Thankfully, unlike other events held across the Atlantic, UFC London 2022 has a much more UK-friendly start time. Prelims start at 5pm, with the main event set to begin at 8pm on Saturday 23 July.

Therefore, fans in Europe do not have to stay up all night long to catch all the action this weekend. It certainly makes for a nice change, doesn’t it?

Where can I watch it?

BT Sport is the home of UFC coverage in the United Kingdom, and UFC London is no different. This Fight Night will be live on BT Sport 1 from 6pm, with prelims happening before the main event.

As ever, to watch this service, you need a subscription. BT currently offers a monthly pass, which costs £25 a month and can be cancelled anytime.

For BT TV users, this is channel number 408 (HD is 430). On Sky, BT Sport 1 HD is channel 413, and for Virgin Media, it is channel 527.

However, you do not have to watch this exclusively via TV. A number of devices can stream the event via the BT Sport app. Tablets, smartphones, and Amazon Fire sticks are all able to provide a live stream of the action.
