Watch UFC 292 live stream: preview and prediction

There's bad blood brewing ahead of UFC 292, as bantamweight champ Aljamain Sterling takes on sworn enemy Sean O'Malley at TD Garden in Boston on Saturday night. 

Sterling will be looking to defend his belt for the fourth time but has hit out at his opponent's perceived preferential treatment.

While the Funk Master claims he has had to work his way up through the ranks, the champ claims O'Malley has an easy passage to title challenge since winning a contract on Dana White’s Contender Series.

With just a three-month gap since his last defence against Henry Cejudo at UFC 288, Sterling has also hit out in the build-up over being forced to return to the Octagon sooner than he would like, allowing  O'Malley - who hasn't fought since last October -  an opportunity look to take advantage.

For his part, O'Malley has hit back, claiming his opponent is getting his excuses in early, further ensuring the likelihood of fireworks in this much-anticipated grudge match.

The main card starts at 10pm ET / 3am BST, while the Sterling vs O'Malley cagewalks are expected at around 1am ET / 6am BST. Follow our guide below as we explain how to watch a UFC 292 live stream, so you can catch Sterling vs O'Malley and the rest in the Octagon, from anywhere.
