UFC 287 takes place in Miami, FL and will feature some of the UFC's best fighters.

UFC 287 is headlined by Alex Pereira and Israel Adesanya. This will be the second time they do battle in the UFC and the fourth time overall. Pereira currently has a 3-0 record in MMA and kickboxing against Adesanya, but the former champion is looking to regain his belt at UFC 287.

In the co-main event, Jorge Masvidal will bring the UFC back to Miami in a big way against Gilbert Burns, who lives in South Florida now. Masvidal has been praised for his boxing and storied career at the top of the sport, but Burns has been in there with the best and looks to add Masvidal to his already impressive resume. Burns is looking for another shot at the title and a big win against Masvidal in his hometown could do the trick.

UFC 287 is a pay-per-view main card which means you'll need to pay for the PPV to watch the top portion of the card. You can also try to find an illegal stream, but we don't condone that and we won't be able to help you with finding one (sorry!).

To watch the PPV, log into ESPN+ (which requires a monthly subscription). You won't be able to watch this on traditional cable, unfortunately.

You can watch the early prelims on UFC Fight Pass or ESPN+ but both require subscriptions. The preliminary card can be watched on ESPN+ or ESPN. The prelims will be the only fights you'll be able to watch on cable if you have the ESPN channel. The main card is PPV only.

The card starts at 3:45 pm PT due to a last-minute fight cancelation.
