UFC 272 comes to you live on Saturday, March 5th from the T-Mobile Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. The PPV begins with an early preliminary card that consists of four matches at 6:00 p.m. ET. and a preliminary card follows with four matches of its own and starts at 8:00 p.m. ET. The main card features five fights and should get started at 10:00 p.m. ET. The main event is a welterweight matchup between Colby Covington and Jorge Masvidal and it will tentatively get scheduled to start at 12:15 a.m., but it depends on the pacing of the matches preceding it.
