The ordering process for Ultimate Fighting Championship pay-per-views has changed: UFC 236 is only available on ESPN+ in the U.S.
UFC 236 goes down Saturday, April 13, 2019, and it’s set to be a historic evening of fights. The Ultimate Fighting Championship returns to Atlanta, where for the first time in promotional history, two interim title fights will headline the card.
In the main event, featherweight champion Max Holloway is moving up in weight to take on Dustin Poirier for the interim lightweight title. It’s a rematch that has taken seven years to manifest, as Poirier beat Holloway in his Octagon debut back in 2012.
The co-main event is an interesting bout for the interim middleweight title. Israel Adesanya will take on Kelvin Gastelum in what should be a great fight. Adesanya is coming off of a decision win over Anderson Silva at UFC 234. On that same event, Gastelum was supposed to fight champion Robert Whittaker until the titleholder had to pull out the day of the fight due to a collapsed bowel and hernia.
The UFC 236 main card airs live at 10 p.m. ET live on pay-per-view (through ESPN+ for all American customers). The ESPN prelims begin at 8 p.m. ET and Fight Pass prelims are live starting at 6:15 p.m. ET.
