DUSTIN POIRIER and Justin Gaethje will main event a huge UFC 291 card THIS WEEKEND. UFC 291 – Dustin Poirier vs Justin Gaethje 2: TV channel, live stream, start time and card for huge Salt Lake City event
Dustin Poirier and Justin Gaethje will clash to crown a new ‘BMF’ champion at UFC 291, in what could be the fight of the year.
Five years after Poirier stopped Gaethje in a thrilling bout, the Americans will square off again, with the vacant ‘baddest motherf*****’ belt on the line in Utah. Since their first in-ring meeting, the lightweights have lost two undisputed-title fights each, but both men have crafted impressive resumes nonetheless.
And Poirier, 34, and Gaethje, also 34, will look to bolster those resumes here, as they fight for the BMF title, which has only been on the line once before. In 2019, the now-retired Jorge Masvidal beat Nate Diaz to become the inaugural champion.
In the co-main event this weekend, former light-heavyweight champion Jan Blachowicz welcomes Alex Pereira to the division, in the latter’s first fight since losing the middleweight belt in April. Elsewhere, there are plenty of exciting match-ups on the card.

One of the most mouth-watering fight cards in recent history is just a few days away from taking over. There is Dustin Poirier vs. Justin Gaethje for the UFC BMF belt, and Jan Blachowicz vs. Alex Pereira for no title (surprisingly), are the headliner fights. Plus, we will have Tony Ferguson, Kevin Holland, and Stephen Thompson, on the sheet as well. Indeed, a line-up cannot get better than UFC 291. While the event needs no build-up and the weekend plan of all the fight enthusiasts is evidently set, there is a certain requirement of getting hold of the broadcast and streaming details of the event.
UFC 291 is scheduled to take place on July 29, 2023. However, due to the phenomena of different time zones, in India, the event will be live televised on July 30, 2023. From the fight card of the pay-per-view to the live streaming details, here are all the details of UFC 291.
Dustin Poirier was victorious the first time around after stopping Gaethje inside four rounds. The two will go head-to-head once again at UFC 291, this time for the vacant BMF title. Aside from the ceremonial belt, the winner of the thrilling bout could stake their claim for a fight with UFC lightweight champion Islam Makhachev.
