UFC 289 live stream: Preview

UFC 289 sees the Ultimate Fighting Championship return to Vancouver for the first time since 2019. And it promises to be a doozy.

Originally scheduled for UFC 288, the co-main event was pushed back because Oliveira was injured. But the Brazilian has been on top form of late: his incredible run (which saw him win a lightweight title and then defend it, and win 11 victories on the trot) was only ended late last year by Islam Makhachev in Abu Dhabi. This is his first fight back.

He faces the American Beneil Dariush, who has been injury prone for years. But his persistence looks to be paying off, and a win over the Brazilian would surely set him up for a shot at the lightweight title.

Nunes vs Aldana

The other headline fight is between Amanda Nunes and Irene Aldana. Brazilian Nunes will be looking to defend the bantamweight that she won back last summer. After suffering her first loss in seven years, Nunes' rematch with Julianna Pena showed what she's made of. In fact, she's beaten every single other fighter to have ever held the bantamweight title.

But Mexican Aldana could pose some problems for the champ, having won four of her last five matches. Expect fireworks.
