10 sec. ago added. How to watch Live UFC: Barboza Vs. Chikadze Live Stream Online. Saturday’s UFC Fight Night promises to be an eventful one, with the return of well-known familiar faces alongside bright prospect newcomers.
Kevin Lee has not been seen inside a UFC Octagon since early last year, where the lightweight standout suffered a submission loss to current champion Charles Oliveira. He will be looking to regain his footing in the UFC’s toughest division, against a lesser-known, Daniel Rodriguez, who will want to make a name for himself at the expense of the Motown Phenom.
The Ultimate Fighter: Team Volkanovski vs Team Ortega will also reach its culmination during this event. Bryan Battle and Gilbert Urbina will fight for the middleweight trophy, while Ricky Turcios and Brady Hiestand will see who comes out on top of the bantamweights. While the coaches will fight it out themselves on pay-per-view next month, this week, the glory is all Volkanowski’s, as all four hopeful TUF winners have come from the featherweight champion’s team.
Chikadze’s most recent victory, a first-round TKO of Cub Swanson, has officially put him on the map as yet another dangerous striker in the shark tank that is lightweight MMA.
However, there are very few people who can claim the resume of Edson Barboza. With a laundry list of exciting knockouts to his name, including those of Terry Etim, and Beneil Dariush, few can match the speed and athleticism that has made him such a threat over the years.
This main event is a striker’s delight, and will be sure to deliver. Be sure to tune in, as you won’t want to miss it.

A single loss can be a major setback in a deep and competitive division. On Saturday night, Edson Barboza and Giga Chikadze will look to avoid that fate when they clash in the featherweight main event of UFC Fight Night from the UFC Apex in Las Vegas.
Barboza is looking to pick up his third straight win, battling back from a stretch in which he went on a 1-5 skid. Those losses came against some of the toughest opposition possible, including Khabib Nurmagomedov, Justin Gaethje and Paul Felder. In 2020, Barboza made the move from lightweight to featherweight, losing a split decision to Dan Ige before picking up a decision win over Makwan Amirkhani and a knockout of Shane Burgos.
Chikadze has not faced the same elite level of competition as Barboza, but he is undefeated in the UFC with a perfect 6-0 record in the Octagon. His last setback was a submission loss on Dana White’s Contender Series, but back-to-back wins on the regional scene in less than one minute combined landed Chikadze on the UFC roster. Chikadze’s results have been increasingly impressive, moving from a pair of split decisions to a pair of unanimous decisions and now back-to-back TKO victories.
