UFC 227 - when and where
UFC 227 will be taking place at The Staples Center in Los Angeles on August 4, 2018.
The main event will take place at 7PM LA time, which means 10pm ET or 3am BST and midday AEST on Sunday.
The rematch you've been waiting for is set to take place at UFC 227. Cody Garbrandt is taking on champ T.J. Dillashaw in a bantamweight title battle that should be totally barnstorming!
In their last encounter back at UFC 217, Dillashaw won with a knockout in the second round as Garbrandt experienced his first career loss. As former teammates this was a huge fight that could only be outdone by a rematch...and here it is.
Having trained together for years, Dillashaw observed: "You obviously look for their strengths and weaknesses. I know the technical difficulties [Garbrandt] has. I know where he’s good, where he’s not [...] I’m going to know Cody like the back of my hand. It’s going to be a good night for me."
The UFC 227 undercard sees flyweight Demetrious Johnson take on Henry Cejudo as well as strawweight Polyana Viana battle it out with JJ Aldrich. You can stream all the action live using this handy guide, meaning you can watch from wherever you are in the world.

How to watch UFC 227: Canada live stream
Fight Pass is the best option in Canada
Canada's Sports Net which usually airs a lot of UFC won't have UFC 227. That means that the cheapest way to live stream UFC 227 is via the Fight Pass.
Pay-per-view on BellMTS is an option as well. But at $64.99, we don't know why you wouldn't go for the much cheaper UFC TV option instead.
