Tonight we will finally find out if Stipe Miocic can avenge his last defeat in the octagon against Junior Dos Santos. Miocic is the UFC heavyweight champ but he lost a decision to Dos Santos in 2014. Since then Miocic has won four straight fights and has been unstoppable with KO wins over Alistair Overeem, Fabricio Werdum, Andrei Arlovski and Mark Hunt. Dos Santos has only fought twice since then going 1-1 with a win over Ben Rothwell and a loss to Overeem.
In addition to Miocic-Dos Santos we will also get to see Joanna Jedrzejczyk defend her strawweight title against
Jessica Andrade. Jedrzejczyk has been dominant since joining the UFC in 2014 but Andrade has won three straight and looking to take the title back to Brazil.
The main card which starts at 10 p.m. ET will champion Stipe Miocic vs.Junior Dos Santos for the UFC heavyweight title, Joanna Jedrzejczyk vs. Jessica Andrade for the strawweight belt, Demian Maia vs. Jorge Masvidal, Frankie Edgar vs. Yair Rodriguez and former WSOF champ David Branch vs. Krzysztof Jotko will start the pay per view.
The undercard of the show will be shown live and for free on FX instead of Fox Sports 1 at 8 due to the NASCAR race. FX will show former lightweight champ Eddie Alvarez vs. Dustin Poirier, Jason Knight vs. Chas Skelly, Rashad Coulter vs. Chase Sherman and Marco Polo Reyes vs. James Vick.
Fight Pass will stream Jessica Aguilar vs. Cortney Casey, Enrique Barzola vs. Gabriel Benitez and Gadzhimurad Antigulov vs. Joachim Christensen beginning at 7:30 PM ET.
With the two big title fights tonight you will not want to miss out on the show in Dallas on pay per view.
You can order the UFC pay per view by calling your local cable TV provider or Direct TV. It’s also available on Roku for streaming if you have that on your TV. If you are in Brazil you can catch the show on Combate. If you are in Mexico, Paraguay, Peru or Argentina you can watch the show on the UFC Network. Fox South East Asia will air the event in Papau New Guinea, Singapore and most other Asian countries. In Ireland UFC 194 will be shown on TV3 on delay. Abu Dhabi Sports 6 will air the sport in most Middle East countries such as Kuwait and Saudi Arabia. Australia will also feature the show on Main Event. New Zealand will show it on SKY TV.
There are sites online that have streams and live feeds of the show. However, they typically go down during the event and you wind up missing the fights. Ordering straight from the UFC is the best way to see the event live without any interruptions. Some folks will attempt to stream UFC 211 on Twitter’s periscope app but it will get shut down by the UFC eventually and isn’t very relaible.
You could check out a local sportsbar around town such as Hooters or Buffalo Wild Wings if you can find a booth or place to sit. Typically bars fill up very fast for big UFC events such as this one. If all else fails you can catch the highlights on Youtube or other sites such as ESPN or FoxSports.
Be sure to turn your phone off and stay off of all your social media accounts just in case something big happens. If there is a big upset or highlight reel KO on the show your friends will be texting you about what happened in Dallas tonight.
