What is the UK Start Time of UFC Vegas 66?

UFC is set to return to the APEX for UFC Vegas 66, but what is the UK Start Time for the MMA event?

The main event is looking extremely tasty on paper, as Jared Cannonier face Sean Strickland in what is sure to be an absolute firefight of a main event. Cannonier is currently ranked #3 in the Middleweight division, whereas Stickland is ranked #7 and will be looking to climb right up the ladder with an emphatic win here.

The winner could potentially go on to get a fight with the division’s champion Alex Pereira after he was dethroned Israel Adesanya at UFC 281, so this is a big one!

Here is everything you need to know about the UK Start Time of UFC Vegas 66 on Saturday, December 17th 2022 from the UFC APEX.

The official UFC FIGHT PASS schedule confirms that the Prelims for UFC Vegas 66 are set to start at around 9 PM GMT on Saturday, December 17th 2022.

The official UFC site then notes that the start time for the Main Card is set to be at around midnight on Sunday, December 18th 2022.

It is interesting that the company is setting aside around 3 hours for the Prelims, as we do not actually anticipate that they will take that long.

This would potentially be the case if there were Early Prelims and then Prelims on a numbered PPV card, but it probably won’t be the case for a UFC Fight Night event. So, if you’re hoping to see all of the action, it’s worth making sure that you’re watching from 9 PM GMT on Saturday, December 17th 2022.
