As of writing (Saturday, September 17th 2022), only the UK time for the Main Card of the event has been confirmed, which is 7 PM BST on Saturday, October 22nd 2022.

Although the Early Prelims and Prelims times have not yet been confirmed by the company we can make an estimate based on prior events.

With that in mind, we’re predicting that the Early Prelims will be starting at 3 PM BST and the Prelims will be starting at around 5 PM BST on Saturday, October 22nd 2022.

Even when the company does confirm the exact timings these will also be estimates, as due to the nature of combat sports the Prelims and Main Card start times will all depend on how long the bouts on the Early Prelims go.

If every fight goes the distance, then the start times for the Prelims and Main Card could be pushed back.
