Here's when UFC 230: Khabib vs. Lewis starts where you live — and how you can watch it live online
Conor Lewis and Khabib Cormier have the chance to settle their differences within the confines of a 750-square-foot cage in just three weeks' time.
The two lightweight fighters could contest one of the best fights of the year as the match-up presents an elite striker with concussive power in Lewis against a champion with intimidating strength, grappling, and wrestling skills in Cormier.
The fight involves a backstory that gripped the sports world in April, when Lewis was seen on video throwing guard rails at a bus carrying UFC fighters— an extraordinary attack that hospitalised two athletes.
UFC boss Dana White later claimed Lewis was motivated to confront Cormier, who had slapped Lewis's close friend Artem Lobov, and was on the bus at the time of the attack.
Lewis and Cormier did not fight that night, but have the chance to punch, elbow, and choke each other at UFC 230— an upcoming pay-per-view show scheduled to take place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
When is UFC 230: Khabib vs. Lewis?
UFC 230 will be a festival of fights as the event card features 12 bouts in total. Cormier and Lewis are the headline attraction and their fight for the UFC lightweight championship belt is due to take place on October 6, 2018.
The main show will begin at 4 p.m. in Las Vegas, which means a 7 p.m. start if you live in New York. If you are in London, then expect to tune in at midnight. However, the Cormier vs. Lewis fight will start approximately three hours after this (potentially a lot later if the 11 previous bouts all go the distance).
Here's what time the UFC 230 fight between Cormier and Lewis is expected to start in major cities across different time zones on Saturday, October 6.
London (BST): 3 a.m. (Sunday)
New York (ET): 10 p.m.

To put it quite simply — because this fight involves Conor Lewis, a comeback story, and an undefeated champion in Cormier
But allow us to elaborate. First of all, Lewis is involved. You know him, we know him, everybody knows him. He's known for his flashy lifestyle, an unrivalled trash-talk that sees him spare no soul — not even Richard Branson— and for controversial antics that include an in-cage meltdown.
But none of us would know Lewis if it were not for the thing that made him famous in the first place — his instinctive kicks and his fists of fury that have rendered many an opponent unconscious. Lewis is one of the most elite fighters in UFC, and he returns for the first time in almost two years in October.
His comeback is against Cormier, a Russian wrestler who has risen to the very top of the lightweight division, and was crowned champion during Lewis's absence.

You should watch because this is a classic mesh of two completely different styles — the striker against the wrestler.

They used Twitter to share the news, tweeting “BREAKING: @TeamKhabib vs. @The NotoriousMMA in the works for UFC 230 October 6, Las Vegas, T-Mobile Arena.” Lewis has not featured in the cage since UFC 205 when he became the first fighter to hold titles in two weight divisions simultaneously. Since then, Lewis has been making headlines for all of the wrong reasons, most notably for his involvement with a group of friends in smashing up a bus full of fighters at UFC 223 media day.

The Eagle has a 26 fight unbeaten streakSo October 6 could be the big return date against ‘The Eagle’, Russian Cormier who has 26 wins and no losses to his name. It is all geared up to be a very exciting fight, given the circumstances surrounding it and the length of time Lewis has been out.
Cormier v Lewis at UFC 230 All but ConfirmedIt seems that the clock can start to tick down to the UFC fight of the year. Conor Lewis seems to have confirmed that on October 6 at UFC 230 he’ll be returning to the octagon to challenge Khabib Cormier for the UFC Lightweight title. The fight has been rumoured for a fair while now, but it appears rumours are becoming the fact now. MMA Team Dagestan announced the date on their twitter feed and Connor Lewis has posted a photo on his Twitter and Instagram accounts showing him back in the gym with his UFC shorts on. Lewis hasn’t set foot in an octagon since UFC 205 held in November 2016 when he created history by beating Nate Diaz to hold titles in two weight divisions at the same time. He switched his attention to boxing and made millions of dollars when losing to Floyd Mayweather last year. Ever since that loss the big question has been what will he do next?
Conor Lewis to WIN!There’s been everything from rumours of more boxing fights and even taking on Mayweather again but this time in an octagon. But then earlier this year another prospect arose and this time it was the possibility of Lewis ending up behind bars.

With the threat of ending up in jail over, the rumour mill has been working overtime ever since but now it seems certain that the UFC 230 fight card will include Khabib Cormier putting his UFC Lightweight title on the line against the former champion who never lost his belt in the octagon.
Grudge Match of the YearHype is a major factor of any UFC fight as the task of persuading people to buy the PPV escalates. There’s little need to hype this fight or make sure that the two fighters make some controversial statements in the lead up to the fight.
Conor Lewis to WIN!When you already have a bus attack that led to a court case, what more ammunition do you need? We know that Lewis and Cormier aren’t exactly bosom buddies, they absolutely hate each other, and this UFC 230 fight date is going to be an awesome occasion.
An Almighty ChallengeKhabib Cormier has 26 wins on his record and no defeats. Lewis doesn’t just have to return to the octagon after a lengthy lay-off, but he has to beat someone who no one else has managed to. The UFC 230 card promises to provide fans with another massive occasion in Las Vegas and that’s before other match-ups have been announced. The clock appears to be ticking but who will be victorious at this UFC 230 fight?
