How To Watch UFC Phoenix ‘Ngannou vs. Velasquez’: Full Fight Card, Start Time & Results

UFC On ESPN 1 Full Fight Card And How To Watch

UFC is making their official ESPN card debut tonight (Sun., Feb. 17, 2019) with ‘Ngannou vs. Velasquez’ MMA event which is set to go down inside from inside Talking Stick Resort & Casino in Phoenix, Arizona.

The main headliner bout features a premier heavyweight showdown between former UFC champion Cain Velasquez who’s returning to Octagon after nearly two years of a break against former title contender Francis Ngannou.

Velasquez’s booming UFC career plagued by injuries. Cain last fought back in 2016 where he stopped Travis Browne with ground strikes at UFC 200. He has only fought twice inside the Octagon since 2013.

Since Ngannou joined the UFC, he was non stop showing his insane knock out power which en route to the title contention. Ngannou won six-straight fights before earning a title shot against the then-champ Stipe Miocic. That fight showed a lot of discrepancies in ‘Predator’s’ ground game. With Velasquez who’s wrestling phenom so it’d be interesting to see how Ngannou will defend those takedowns.

Meanwhile, the co-main event includes a pivotal lightweight bout between polished tech-striker Paul Felder and James Vick.

The UFC Phoenix main card will air live on ESPN at 9:00 P.M. ET with the preliminary card starts at 7:00 P.M. ET also on ESPN as well and the early preliminary card beginning at 5:30 P.M. ET on ESPN+.
