UFC 284 live stream: Preview

The hugely-anticipated main event sees Makhachev put his 155lb title on the line for the first time as he takes on the reigning featherweight king and current pound-for-pound champion Alexander Volkanovski.

Aussie star Volkanovski has been unbeaten for almost a decade, with this event marking his first fight on home soil since 2018.

For added intrigue, the co-main event sees Yair Rodriguez and Josh Emmett go head-to-head for the interim featherweight crown in Volkanovski’s absence, with the winner of that fight likely to be given the opportunity to challenge for the undisputed title whenever Volk returns to his regular weight.

Russian fighter Makhachev has won 11 consecutive bouts in a row including his successful challenge for the vacant lightweight belt against Charles Oliveira at UFC 280 back in October.

Volkanovski is meanwhile on a run of 12 UFC victories, including four successful defences of his featherweight belt, with 22 straight wins across all competitions. 

The UFC 284: Makhachev vs. Volkanovski main card is expected to get started at off at 2pm AEDT / 3am GMT / 10pm ET / 7pm PT on Saturday 11th February, at the RAC Arena in Perth. Make sure you know how to watch a UFC 284 by following our guide below.
