ESPN and SiriusXM have teamed up to give listeners access to ESPN's live audio coverage of select UFC events on SiriusXM Fight Nation (channel 156), SiriusXM's dedicated combat sports channel. Listeners tuning into SiriusXM Fight Nation will hear the live call from the UFC audio on ESPN networks. As part of the agreement, SiriusXM subscribers can hear the English-language, live UFC audio broadcast of all UFC Fight Night events -- from beginning-to-end -- the UFC PPV Early Prelims and Prelims and Dana White's Contender Series events.

"We are constantly looking for new ways to give fans more access to our content," said ESPN VP/Programming and Acquisitions Matt Kenny. "SiriusXM's expansive reach will help us bring the excitement of UFC to a broader audience and provide additional ways for these very passionate fans to stay connected to the action."

"We've built SiriusXM Fight Nation to be a daily destination for fight fans to get the latest MMA news and talk about the sport's biggest matchups," added SiriusXM VP of Sports Programming Eric Spitz. "ESPN's live UFC coverage is a tremendous addition to the channel and we're thrilled to give our subscribers access to so many great events, starting this Saturday with UFC 286."

Coverage begins this Saturday, March 18 live from London with the UFC 286: Edwards vs. Usman 3 Early Prelims at 1 p.m. ET and the Prelims at 3pm ET.
