What time does UFC 258 main card start?

As the fights are back in the USA, it should make things a bit easier for MMA fans on the east coast.

UFC is back in action in Las Vegas this Saturday evening for its UFC 258 PPV event. The 12-fight card is headlined by welterweight championship bout featuring champion Kamaru Usman and No. 2 Gilbert Burns. That will be the only championship belt being contested on the evening, but there are nine fighters ranked in the Top-15 competing on the full card.

UFC 258 will get underway at 6:15 p.m. ET with the early preliminary card on UFC Fight Pass. Once the two early preliminary fights wrap, the regular preliminary card is scheduled to start 8 p.m. ET. and will air on ESPN and ESPN+. There are currently four fights scheduled for that part of the show.

The main card is currently scheduled to get started at 10 p.m. ET, and will take place on live on ESPN+ PPV. Even if it is delayed, that’s close enough to plan your evening accordingly. And if you only care about the main event between Kamaru Usman and Gilbert Burns, it’s estimated that will start just after midnight ET. That’s 9 p.m. in Las Vegas, and should give plenty of time for those one the west coast to still enjoy a later evening.
