UFC Fight Night 226 UK Time: When does the event start?

Last updated

UFC Fight Night 226 is making its way to Paris, with the heavyweight bout between Cyril Gane and Serghei Spivak taking centre stage.

Gane, a native of France, is returning to his homeland, hoping to echo his previous success against Tai Tuivasa during the first-ever UFC event in France.

However, Gane’s recent setback against Jon Jones at UFC 285, where he narrowly missed out on the heavyweight title, is still fresh in memory.

UFC Fight Night 226: Gane vs Spivak – The Main Event

Serghei Spivak is not to be underestimated. With a winning streak of three fights, including a notable victory over Derrick Lewis via submission earlier this year, he’s a formidable opponent.

Gane acknowledges the challenge, stating that while Tai Tuivasa was indeed a tough competitor, Spivak brings a more rounded skill set to the octagon.

Spivak’s ability to strike, wrestle, and dominate the ground game makes him a significant threat.

The much-anticipated UFC Paris event is scheduled for Saturday, September 2nd, at the renowned Accor Arena. For fans in the UK, the preliminary card will kick off at 5 PM UK time.

The main card, featuring the headline bout between Gane and Spivak, is set to commence at 8 PM UK time.
