Join us in the video player above tonight for a ‘radio style’ play-by-play broadcast of the UFC 245 PPV (pay-per-view) MAIN CARD with LIVE updates, results & reactions in our Live YouTube Video Stream, which will begin at the start of the main card, at approximately 9PM CST.

The UFC is showcasing a Welterweight Title Fight in UFC 245’s main event TONIGHT (Sat., December 14, 2019) from inside the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. ‘The Nigerian Nightmare’ Kamaru Usman entering the octagon tonight on a sixteen-fight win streak, takes on Colby ‘Chaos’ Covington, who has a seven-fight win streak under his belt; also on the card is another Title Bout, with the #2 ranked Featherweight, Max ‘Blessed’ Holloway, who will enter the Octagon as a staff favorite against Alexander ‘The Great’ Volkanovski, who is on a seventeen-fight win streak; rounding things out, we will also be treated to a third Title Fight with the likes of Amanda ‘The Lioness’ Nunes vs. Germaine ‘The Iron Lady’ de Randamie… what a night of fights we have to look forward to!

Covington, being the heel that he is, has garnered plenty of media attention this week discussing his public persona, being called a liar by Jon Jones, calling out USADA saying Usman wasn’t tested for EPO, telling McGregor and Cowboy to retire, and saying he will move to the WWE if the UFC doesn’t pay up. Let’s see if he can put his money where his mouth is tonight.

You may have your reasons not to watch this event live or shell out the cash for the PPV – so we did it for you. Maybe there is just something more important going on tonight with the Holidays approaching, where you just can’t be in front of the TV. Whatever the case may be, we’ve got you covered! During the entire five-fight main card portion of UFC 245, Matt Ryan and his co-host Harry Terjanian, will be doing a radio-style play-by-play broadcast of every single important bit of violence. The show is a modern YouTube stream, that will broadcast in the video player above, sort of like a sports talk show/bar hangout meets vlog.

Throughout the telecast, SBN MMA’s Matt Ryan, will engage with the live chat whenever possible. Please join us and consider subscribing to SBN MMA on YouTube. Meanwhile, as the third member of our team, I will moderate your live chat, laying the ‘ban hammer’ down on those pesky spammers and link beggars, as well as offering support to the guys throughout the show with factoids, bonus updates and adding results and updated fight records in full detail, to the chat and description, as well as right here in this post, so no need to go anywhere else…
