The waiting is over...it's time for MMA fans to turn their attention to the Octagon in Chicago. That's where Henry Cejudo and Marlon Moraes - as well as plenty more UFC stars - will do battle tonight, and you're in the right place to discover how to get a UFC 238 live stream - it doesn't even matter where in the world you are.
UFC 238 - where and when?
UFC 238 is taking place right now! It's all happening at the United Center in Chicago, Illinois.
While you can tune in to the prelim fights now, the main card for UFC 238 will begin at around 10pm ET, 7pm PT and 3am BST.
Henry Cejudo and Marion Moraes might be the headline fight but in the women's flyweight the acton should be flowing as Valentina Shevchenko lets Jessica Eye take a look at her title.
The vacant Bantamweight Championship title is up for grabs and the 2008 Olympic gold medalist in freestyle wrestling, as well as current flyweight champion Henry Cudjo, has got his eyes on it. But former WSOF Bantamweight champ Marlon Moraes isn't one to back down easily. As such this should make for an action-packed title fight.
The next big fight on the card is the battle of Valentina Shevchenko – yes the current flyweight champion – as she defends her title against Jessica Eye. As "one of the best strikers in the women's division", Eye could pose a real threat to the current queen of the flyweight category.

How to watch UFC online in the US exclusively on ESPN
Gone are the days of watching UFC on cable television as ESPN+ has secured the rights to show UFC 238 as well as all upcoming UFC Fight Nights. ESPN+ has already made a name for itself by hosting big-ticket tennis, soccer and boxing events.
If you don't already have a subscription, then the way to go seems to be a UFC Bundle, costing you $79.99. That won't just buy you the UFC 238 PPV, but you’ll get a year-long subscription to ESPN+ (that would normally cost $60 alone).
For those that already have an ESPN+ subscription, you can still buy access to UFC 238 for $59.99.
