UFC 289 is set to stream tonight, June 10, from Rogers Arena in Vancouver, Canada. The main event features a women’s bantamweight title match between current champ Amanda Nunes and challenger Irene Aldana.
The pay-per-view livestream is exclusive to ESPN+ members in the US, but if you’re outside the country, don’t worry, there are a few international viewing options. We’ll also guide you step-by-step on how to use a VPN to watch UFC 289 no matter where you are.
Amanda Nunes first won the UFC women’s bantamweight title in a July 2016 victory over Miesha Tate, but then lost the title in a December 2021 fight against Julianna Peña. Nunes and Peña had a rematch in July 2022, where Nunes won the bantamweight title back.
Though UFC 289 was originally supposed to be headlined by another rematch between Peña and Nunes, Peña had to withdraw due to an injury. Irene Aldana will replace her on the main card. Aldana is currently ranked fifth in the bantamweight division.
