IT’S A GRUDGE match in Miami tonight for UFC 287.

The headlining fight sees former middleweight champion Israel Adesanya getting a much-anticipated rematch against his rival, the current champ Alex Pereira. The duo previously headlined UFC 281 in November, when Pereira took the middleweight belt from Adesanya via fifth-round knockout. Tonight, Adesanya gets a chance at redemption.

Below is everything you need to know about the UFC event, including details on how to watch Pereira vs. Adesanya 2 online using ESPN+, betting odds, and the fight’s start time.

ESPN+ subscriptions cost $9.99 per month or $99 annually if you pay for a year upfront. However, a better way to get ESPN+ is to sign up for the Disney Bundle. This bundle includes subscriptions to ESPN+, Disney+, and Hulu — all for $12.99 a month. This saves you about $11 a month compared to paying for each streaming service separately.

As with past UFC PPV events, ESPN+ is running a bundle deal to promote UFC 287 that delivers big savings on an annual ESPN+ subscription. For $124.98, the bundle gets you the UFC 287 PPV livestream and a year of ESPN+. That’s about $55 less than buying the PPV and an annual ESPN+ subscription separately, making it a great choice if you plan on using ESPN+ throughout the next year (say, to watch other UFC events).

When is UFC 287? Date, Time

UFC 287 is happening tonight, Saturday, April 8 at the Miami-Dade Arena in Miami, Florida.

The action kicks off with early prelims at 6 p.m. ET / 3 p.m. PT before prelims at 8 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. PT. The main card is scheduled to start at 10 p.m. ET / 7 p.m. PT.

UFC 287: Pereira vs. Adesanya 2 Odds, Fight Card

Pereira and Adesanya have previously fought three times: once in last year’s UFC 281 and twice in kickboxing matches. However, Adesanya is the slight favorite in tonight’s matchup with moneyline odds of -142 against Pereira’s +116.

So why is Adesanya the favorite in the rematch against Pereira, despite losing to “Poatan” three times? It likely comes down to the fighters’ professional histories. Adesanya has an MMA record of 23-2 and a pro kickboxing record of 75-5, while Pereira is 7-1 in MMA and 33-7 in kickboxing.

“The Last Stylebender” Adesanya is also more accomplished in the UFC, making his debut in 2018 before grabbing the middleweight belt the following year. He then defended the title five times before losing to Pereira.

Pereira debuted in the UFC less than two years ago and leveraged his kickboxing record and a 2022 knockout of Sean Strickland to get a shot at Adesanya’s title last year.

Another win from Pereira would almost certainly put an end to the duo’s buzzy rivalry. The opposite outcome would see a continuation in a third UFC fight.

“This is the point where I’m down two fights in kickboxing, one fight in MMA,” said Adesanya. “I’m down three. This is in every movie, that one shot. This is my Eminem moment, my 8-Mile moment. ‘You get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow. This opportunity comes once in a lifetime.’ This is it for me.”

Of course, Pereira and Adesanya aren’t the only fighters entering the octagon tonight. We’ll also see some exciting prelims before the main event, including a fight between welterweights Jorge Masvidal and Gilbert Burns. Here’s the full UFC 287 fight card:
