Featherweight contenders Chan Sung Jung and Dan Ige will headline this Saturday’s UFC Fight Night at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas. The entire event will air on ESPN2 and ESPN+ with prelims scheduled for 4 p.m. ET and the main card starting at 7 p.m. ET.

This is Jung’s sixth consecutive main event match; his last fight was a decision loss to Brian Ortega in October 2020. Ige scored a first-round knockout in his March 2021 fight against Gavin Tucker, rebounding from a decision loss to Calvin Kattar last year. Both fighters are working to maintain their place in UFC’s increasingly competitive featherweight division.

UFC Fight Night: Jung vs. Ige will have limited attendance, though UFC has started welcoming fans back to other events. UFC 264: Poirier vs. McGregor will be the first Las Vegas UFC event with fans since the COVID-19 pandemic began.

High-ranking bantamweights Rob Font and Cody Garbrandt will meet in the main event of this weekend’s UFC Fight Night on ESPN+, with coverage beginning at 4 p.m. ET.

Font and Garbrandt are ranked third and fourth in their weight class, respectively, and a win at UFC Fight Night would put them on a fast track to battle for UFC’s bantamweight championship. Font enters the match with three consecutive victories under his belt, including a first-round knockout that earned him UFC’s Performance of the Night honors in December 2020.

Garbrandt previously held the title in 2017 but suffered a trio of losses that left him considering a move to flyweight. He contracted COVID-19 last year and subsequent health complications have kept him out of the octagon since June 2020.

Both the prelims and main card of this week’s UFC Fight Night will air exclusively on ESPN+, with prelim coverage starting at 4 p.m. ET from UFC’s Las Vegas campus. The main card is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. ET.

UFC Fight Night: Font vs. Garbrandt will be held without fans in attendance because of the COVID-19 pandemic. UFC 264 on July 10 will be the first Las Vegas UFC event with a full crowd since the pandemic began. UFC has consistently implemented safety precautions for fighters and staff, including advanced medical screenings, regular testing, temperature checks, and social distancing guidelines.

The UFC’s majority owner Endeavor is eyeing a valuation of over $10 billion for its upcoming IPO

Francis Ngannou UFC

The Ultimate Fighting Championship’s parent company, Endeavor Group Holdings, is eyeing a valuation of over $10 billion for its upcoming IPO, according to an S-1 prospectus filed by the firm.

Endeavor plans to sell 21.3 million shares priced between $23 and $24 a share in hopes of raising $511.2 million in the public offering.

The firm will also raise up to $1.3 billion from private investors like Abu Dhabi’s state-owned investment company Mubadala and the owner of the New England Patriots Robert Kraft.

Endeavor plans to trade on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker “EDR.”

Hollywood power broker Ari Emanuel, the inspiration for Ari Gold in HBO’s “Entourage,” founded Endeavor in 1995 as a talent agency and has since expanded the business to include sports businesses, live events, and concerts.

“The events of 2020 reminded us of the enduring value of premium intellectual property and content while reinforcing the strength of our position within the sports and entertainment ecosystem,” Ari Emanuel wrote in the company’s S-1 Prospectus.

“We believe being a public company will enable us to accelerate this mission and further the vision we set out in 1995 to build a company for where the world was headed. We hope you’ll join us,” Emanuel added.

Endeavor’s major holdings include the UFC, the Miss Universe Pagent, the talent agency WME (which boasts clients like Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson), and Euroleague Basketball. The company plans to use $835.7 million of its IPO funds to buy the portion of the UFC that it doesn’t already own.

Endeavor also recently nominated Elon Musk to its board of directors in the lead-up to its IPO.

The firm had previously attempted to raise $600 million in its first IPO effort back in 2019 at a valuation of roughly $6.5 billion, but ultimately called it off citing poor market conditions after a less than stellar response from investors.

Part of what may have scared off potential buyers is Endeavor’s massive debt load. The firm has $5.9 billion of debt on its books with only around $1 billion in cash.

Net losses in 2020 topped $650 million on $3.4 billion in revenue as well, according to the company’s SEC filings.

If Endeavor does go public, founder Ari Emanuel and executive chairman Patrick Whitesell would have stakes totaling around $900 million, but the company’s biggest shareholder would be Silver Lake, with a stake valued at more than $4 billion.

Gastelum has lost three of his lasts four fights, including matches against Adesanya and Till, but rebounded with a win over Ian Heinisch in February at UFC 258.

The early prelims start at 7:30 p.m. ET and are only available to UFC Fight Pass subscribers. The prelims will begin at 8 p.m. ET on ESPN+ and the ESPN cable channel. The main card is scheduled for 10 p.m. ET and is an ESPN+ exclusive pay-per-view event.

This means that you have to subscribe to the ESPN+ streaming service before you’re able to purchase the main card PPV. An ESPN+ membership costs $6 a month or $60 a year. The UFC 260 PPV event requires a one-time fee of $70 on top of your ESPN+ subscription.

You can access the ESPN+ app on all major mobile and streaming devices, including Amazon Fire, Apple, Android, Chromecast, PS4, Xbox One, Roku, Samsung Smart TVs, and more.

Ways to save on the UFC 260 pay-per-view price

If you plan on signing up for ESPN+ to watch UFC 260, you can take advantage of a special discounted package.

New subscribers can purchase a year-long ESPN+ membership with access to UFC 260 included for a total of $89.98. That’s over 30% off the regular combined price of an annual plan and a PPV match. Following your first year of service, ESPN+ will then renew for the regular annual price of $60.

Stipe Miocic Francis Ngannou
UFC heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic and Francis Ngannou face off at the weigh-in before their March 27 fight.

UFC heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic will face Francis Ngannou in a highly anticipated rematch at UFC 260 on March 27. The main card of UFC 260 is a $70 pay-per-view event and will be exclusive to members of the ESPN+ streaming service.

ESPN+ normally costs $6 a month or $60 for an annual subscription, but new subscribers coming in for UFC 260 can get a 30% discount if they bundle the PPV event with one year of the service. With the deal, you’ll pay $89.98 for UFC 260 and a full year of ESPN+. Without the deal, that combination would normally cost $129.98.

The bundle deal also presents a good alternative for people who might be thinking of signing up for a monthly ESPN+ plan just to watch the PPV. If you sign up for one month of ESPN+ and buy UFC 260, it will cost you $76. The bundle deal gives you 11 more months of ESPN+ for only $14 more.

After a year, your ESPN+ subscription will renew at the normal $60 a year price unless you cancel or alter it. Check out our full ESPN+ breakdown for more info about what’s included with the service.
