Online preliminaries will start at 6 p.m. ET, with regular preliminaries starting from 8 p.m. ET. The main event card will start from 10 p.m. ET – and the main event fight card can be seen below. UFC 166 can be watched on UFC pay-per-view (PPV) or can be watched online through live stream (details below).
Tonight's main event, Cain Velasquez and Junior dos Santos, will be fighting it out to try and prove who is the best in their third match up, which has been billed as a decider between the pair. The two top fighters have of course taken one a piece in their previous two fights, and the winner tonight is touted by some to be fast-tracked to become the best heavyweight fighter in MMA history.
In the first meeting between Dos Santos and Velasquez, Dos Santos knocked Velasquez out in a dramatic first round.
However, in their second clash, Velasquez dominated from the opening and looked far the superior fighter in the rematch.
These two are clearly the best heavyweights in the world, and whoever wins tonight will have claim to being the number 1.
Even though UFC 166 will clearly be focused on this main fight, there are a number of other top fights in the light heavyweight and lightweight divisions.
Daniel Cormier will be taking on Roy Nelson, and although Cormier is fighting at heavyweight tonight at UFC 166, if he can win well tonight then he could be put on the track for a light heavyweight title shot.
Gilbert Melendez will also be featuring tonight, in his first fight since his controversial loss to then-champ, Benson Henderson. He will be taking on former title challenger Diego Sanchez.
