This is a big weekend for UFC fans with not one but two title fights as a host of champion fighters enter the octagon. The main event will see Oliveira and Makhachev clash over the lightweight championship crown, while Aljamain Sterling will be attempting to defend his bantamweight title against TJ Dillashaw. Read our guide on how to live stream Oliveira vs Makhachev online and watch UFC 280 from anywhere.

This will be an important fight for Oliveira. Back in May he was set to make his second title defence against Justin Gaethje, but when he weighed in over the limit, he was stripped off his title, leaving the belt vacant of a champion.

Can the number one pound for pound fighter hold his position, or will Makhachev get the better of him? It will be a close match, and one you won't want to miss.

But it's not just the title fights that make this event worth tuning in for this weekend, Petr Yan will be facing Sean O'Malley, once again rocking a haircut that looks like he's caught up in a Skittles campaign. 

Will Makhachev see his second ever defeat or can he overpower Oliveira for the title position? And can Dillashaw reclaim his title position? Find out this weekend with a live stream of UFC 280 with all of the streaming options listed below.
