UFC 230 has a lot to live up to after the drama of last month's PPV. The main event - Daniel Cormier vs Derrick Lewis - is a serious heavyweight fight and they're all set to go head-to-head. And we'll tell you how to live stream UFC 230 from anywhere.
Daniel Cormier vs Derrick Lewis - when and where?
UFC 230 takes place at Madison Square Garden in New York City, on Saturday, November 3.
The main event - Daniel Cormier vs Derrick Lewis - will take place at around 10pm local time, which means 7pm PT (2am GMT and 1pm AEDT on Sunday).
This UFC 230 Heavyweight bout will see American and former Olympic wrestler Daniel Cormier "DC", defend his title from fellow American Derrick Lewis "The Black Beast".
Cormier has been enjoying the burden of that champion belt since July's UFC 226 when he knocked out Stipe Miocic in the first round. Coincidentally, it's a knock out punch that's earned Lewis his shot at the title, too, so this championship bout could all be over with one mighty blow.
In a fight against Alexander Volkov earlier this year, Derrick Lewis managed to knock the Russian out with just 11 seconds left in the fight. His career had perhaps been faltering until that point so he could be about to make a huge jump up – or get knocked down hard.
Either way this will be an entertaining fight with the huge fighters throwing their weight - and each other - around. So stick with us if you want a UFC 230 live stream. And we're not talking about some dodgy feed you might find at Reddit that can leave you vulnerable to attacks.

How to watch the UFC 230 with a VPN
If you live in a country where there's no UFC broadcast, then there's still a way you can watch. You'll need to use a VPN to dial in to a country that does have one. A VPN is perfect for this as it allows you to change your IP address so you appear to be in a completely different location.
Virtual Private Networks are also handy if you're concerned about streaming safely on the web, thanks to the encryption they use to hide your details. And the best won't log your personal information, either. We've tested hundreds of VPNs and can recommend these as the best VPNs currently available:
1. Express VPN (comes with a 30 day money back guarantee) This is the #1 rated best VPN in the world right now. You can watch on many devices at once including Smart TVs, Fire TV Stick, PC, Mac, iPhone, Android phone, iPads, tablets etc. Check out Express VPN and get 15 months for the price of 12.
2. IPVanish supports up to 10 devices, so great on the go
3. VyprVPN: blazing speeds make VyprVPN a great choice for 4K video
And don't forget that a VPN isn't just for Christmas...there's loads you can do with them. From unblocking restricted sites and watching Netflix in other countries to adding an extra layer of security for online shopping and banking.
UFC 230 live stream: who has the cheapest PPV price?
It's perhaps not unusual that a single event would cost different amounts in different countries. But what is perhaps stranger is that a Cormier vs Lewis live stream has different prices on the same watching platform depending on where in the world you are.
For example, you'll need to come up with $64.99 in the US to pay for the main event at UFC 230. Yet in somewhere like Hong Kong it costs the equivalent of around $25 USD. So depending where in the world you and your TV, computer or laptop is, you could end up paying less than the host country the US.

Stay protected with a VPN
Kodi's versatility and vast range of content has changed the landscape of live sport watching over the past few years.
