UFC 285 live stream: Preview
UFC 285 marks the return to Octagon action for Jon Jones after a three-year hiatus, with "Bones" having not fight since his February 2020 victory over Dominick Reyes.
Jones was previously dominant at Light Heavyweight, with a supreme 26-1 winning record, but his career has been clouded by three drug bans.
The 35-year-old now steps up to Heavyweight for the first time, with No.1 ranked contender Ciryl Gane standing in the way of the American claiming the coveted belt.
In the time that Jones has been away from the sport, French star Gane has claimed a string of big name scalps, including Alexander Volkov, Derrick Lewis and Jairzinho Rozenstruik, with the former light-heavyweight champion set to be a formidable opponent for the likely rusty Jones.
Saturday's bill also sees Valentina Shevchenko make her eighth defence of her 125lb title against first-time challenger Alexa Grasso.
The UFC 285: Jones vs Gane main card is expected to get started at off at 2pm AEDT / 3am GMT / 10pm ET / 7pm PT on Saturday 4th March, at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Make sure you know how to watch a UFC 285 live stream by following our guide below.
