What time is the Israel Adesanya vs. Marvin Vettori fight at UFC 263?

The UFC 263 main event is for the middleweight championship. We break down when Israel Adesanya and Marvin Vettori are expected to touch gloves in the Octagon.

UFC is back for its June PPV with UFC 263 getting underway Saturday evening at Gila River Arena in Glendale, Arizona. The five-fight early preliminary card gets underway at 6 p.m. ET and will air on UFC Fight Pass. That is followed by the four-fight preliminary card at 8 p.m. on ESPN & ESPN+.

The main card for the event is scheduled to get started at 10 p.m. and will be available for purchase through ESPN+ PPV. The card is headlined by a pair of championship fights. Deiveson Figueiredo and Brandon Moreno will face off in the co-main event for the flyweight championship and then Israel Adesanya and Marvin Vettori will meet in the main event for the middleweight championship.

The Adesanya-Vettori main event is estimated to get going at just after midnight, according to UFC projections. The main card starts at 10 p.m., so it will depend somewhat on how long the first four fights go, and then how long ring entrances with pomp and circumstance is for the title fights. But just after midnight on the east coast is probably a safe bet.
