As confirmed by the official UFC website, the Main Card for UFC 280 is expected to start at around 7 PM BST on Saturday, October 22nd 2022

With that in mind, we’re estimating that Sterling will be making his walk to the octagon between 8:30 PM and 9:30 PM BST on Saturday, October 22nd 2022.

It’s worth noting that these are estimates, as it all depends on how long the fights on the Early Prelims and Prelims actually go on the night. If every bout does to the judges, as highly unlikely as that is, then the rest of the night will be massively affected.
