Marlon Vera vs Cory Sandhagen time: When does UFC Fight Night start in UK and US?

·2 min read

A new bantamweight title challenger could be crowned this weekend, as Marlon Vera and Cory Sandhagen meet in a UFC Fight Night main event.

Vera is looking to make it five wins in a row, with the highlights of his current streak having come against former champions Dominick Cruz and Frankie Edgar. Both Americans were ahead on the scorecards against Vera, before the Ecuadoran knocked out each man in impressive fashion.

Meanwhile, American Sandhagen has twice come up short against ex-champions in recent times, losing agonising decisions to Petr Yan and TJ Dillashaw before bouncing back with a TKO of Song Yadong in August.

In the co-main event, former champion Holly Holm takes on Yana Santos in a women’s bantamweight clash.

Here’s all you need to know.

When is it?

The event will take place on Saturday 25 March, at the AT&T Center in San Antonio, Texas.

The prelims are scheduled to begin at 8pm GMT (12pm PT, 2pm CT, 3pm ET), with the main card following at 11pm GMT (3pm PT, 5pm CT, 6pm ET).

How can I watch it?

The card will air live on BT Sport in the UK, with the broadcaster’s app and website also streaming the fights.

In the US, ESPN+ will stream the action live, as will the UFC’s Fight Pass.
