UFC 266 Volkanovski vs Ortega: Get the Australian stream here
Aussie UFC powerhouse Alexander Volkanovski headlines a mega UFC 266 in Las Vegas as he sets out to defend his crown against Brian Ortega.
The long-awaited title fight between current UFC featherweight champion, Australia's Alexander "The Great" Volkanovski, and number 2 contender Brian Ortega headlines a super card at UFC 266 on Sunday.
The fight was originally scheduled to take place in March, only for it to be postponed after Volkanovski contracted COVID-19. The pair then spent months opposite each other as rival coaches on reality fight show The Ultimate Fighter where they didn't exactly hit it off.
Volkanovski has had plenty to say about his opponent in the lead-up to the fight, bringing up Ortega's 2015 doping ban for steroid use and calling the Californian unworthy of fighting him. The Aussie is favoured to win the bout and retain the title he's held since 2019 but there are no certainties inside the Octagon.
Valentina Shevchenko will defend her UFC women's flyweight championship for a sixth time against Lauren Murphy and Nick Diaz will have his first fight in 6 years, a rematch of his 2004 UFC 47 bout against Robbie Lawler.

UFC 266 will be held at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Sunday 26 September. Preliminary card bouts begin at 8am AEST. Once they're done, strap yourself in for a massive main card which commences at midday AEST.
