UFC 293 Live Stream: Start Time, Fight Card, Price, Where To Watch Live

Live from the Qudos Bank Arena in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia, Israel Adesanya defends his UFC Middleweight Championship against Sean Strickland in the main event of UFC 293!

“The Last Stylebender” returns to the octagon at UFC 293. Having won four of his last five fights (the loss coming at the hands of Alex Pereira at UFC 281 in November 2022), Adesanya enters the ring with a 24-2 record. His opponent, Sean Strickland (27-5), has won his last two fights, but lost his previous two bouts (to Jared Cannonier and Alex Pereira at a December 2022 UFC Fight Night event and UFC 276, respectively). Who will exit Australia draped in middleweight championship gold? We’re about to find out.
