ESPN+ members can stream UFC 270 ($75) live on January 22 with the main card starting at 10 p.m. ET.
Heavyweight champ Francis Ngannou will defend his title against undefeated interim champ Ciryl Gane.
Flyweight champion Brandon Moreno will fight former champ Deiveson Figueiredo for the third time.
UFC 270, the league’s first pay-per-view event of 2022, features a pair of championship fights on January 22. Heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou and flyweight champion Brandon Moreno will both enter the ring in their first title defenses.
Ngannou will fight interim heavyweight champion Ciryl Gane. Ngannou won the heavyweight belt in March 2021 but contract disputes with UFC led the promotion to hold an interim championship fight between Gane and Derrick Lewis in August 2021. Gane is undefeated in 10 career fights, while Ngannou has 16 wins and three losses.
Moreno will face Deiveson Figueiredo in a trilogy fight. Moreno defeated Figueiredo by submission to earn UFC’s flyweight belt in June 2021, and their first match in December 2020 ended in a draw.
UFC 270 will stream live on ESPN+ from the Honda Center in Anaheim, California. The main card is a $75 pay-per-view event. You’ll also need an ESPN+ subscription, which costs $7 a month or $70 per year, to order the fight.
