UFC 243 Live Stream: Watch MMA Fight, Start Time, Main Card Game HD Tv. Watch UFC 243 Kickoff Presser For ‘Whittaker Vs. Adesanya’. While the UFC is busy in California this week with UFC 241, the world’s leading MMA promotion was already thinking ahead. To UFC 243, that is, set to go down this October in Melbourne, Australia. The UFC’s return down under will be a stadium show, with middleweight gold on the line.
That 185lb clash will see champ Robert Whittaker take on interim champion Israel Adesanya, in a hotly anticipated title unification fight. ‘The Last Stylebender’ has had a meteoric rise over the past two years, taking the MMA world by storm after crossing over from kickboxing. Whittaker, meanwhile, has gone from Ultimate Fighter alum to bonafide UFC star, but has struggled with health issues, which have conspired to keep him out of the octagon far more than he has been in it.
Fingers crossed, all those troubles will be a distant memory come October, and fans will get the showdown they’ve been waiting to see.
Wednesday night, the promotion would host a live press conference for the event, featuring the key players atop the card. Tune in at 10PM ET to watch a live stream of the media event, which should get the promotional ball rolling for what could turn out to be one of the biggest fights in Australia’s history.
With more than six weeks until showtime, Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is already beginning to prime its promotional pump for UFC 243: “Whittaker vs. Adesanya,” a blockbuster ESPN+ pay-per-view (PPV) that is scheduled to take place inside Marvel Stadium in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, on Oct. 6, 2019 (but airing stateside on Sat., Oct. 5).
Local heroes and bitter rivals, Middleweight champion Robert Whittaker and interim 185-pound titleholder Israel Adesanya, will hold court tonight (Weds., Aug. 14, 2019) at UFC 243’s kickoff press conference to discuss their upcoming title unification bout, as well as mean mug for the media in attendance one more time … but certainly not the last.
