What time the UFC 260 main card starts on March 27th

UFC’s heavyweight championship in on the line this Saturday from the APEX in Las Vegas, but when will they begin?

Saturday’s UFC 260 event should feature a fairly compelling card from the UFC Apex in Las Vegas on Saturday, March 27th. The five-bout main card will be highlighted at the top with a rematch for the heavyweight title between Stipe Miocic and Francis Ngannou.

Miocic and Ngannou last fought in 2018 with Miocic winning by unanimous decision. Miocic then lost the belt to Daniel Cormier before regaining it and then retaining it with consecutive victories over Cormier, most recently at UFC 252 in August 2020. Ngannou is a slight favorite heading into Saturday night according to the odds on DraftKings Sportsbook.

UFC 260 will get underway at 7:30 p.m. ET with one fight on the early preliminary card on UFC Fight Pass. Once that wraps, 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 Stipe Miocic and Francis Ngannou, it’s estimated that will start just after midnight ET. That’s 9 p.m. in Las Vegas, which will give west coast people plenty of time to still enjoy a night out after the card.
