UFC 296: How to watch, UK Start Time, Full Card

UFC 296 goes down on Saturday evening with an epic main event between Leon Edwards and Colby Covington, and we’re giving you all the details on how to watch the action.

On Saturday evening, the British icon will attempt to defend his championship belt against one of the most controversial men in the sport, in a bout fans can’t afford to miss.

On August 20, 2022, Edwards’ years of hard work and sacrifice culminated in one crazy kick inside the Vivint Arena in Salt Lake City, Utah, United States. When all hope seemed lost, in the fifth round of a fight he was losing convincingly, ‘Rocky’ landed an almighty blow, rendering Kamaru Usman unconscious to claim the welterweight title.

But now, he has another task on his hands — surving Covington’s mind games. The prolific trash talker is renowned for defeating his opponents long before they ever set foot in the cage. However, his abilities far transcend merely getting the better of verbal exchanges.


His remarkable wrestling skills and incredible gas tank, are tools that the American always uses to his advantage, meaning Edwards will have to be switched on for every second of the bout, making this a contest that fans can’t afford to miss. So, without further ado, here’s how you can tune in.
