UFC 265 has Lewis vs. Gane online this Saturday night, and fans who also love Alexa need to figure out how to watch UFC 265 on Amazon Fire TV. Don’t wait until the fights are starting to make sure you have a streaming device you can rely on to stream all of UFC’s latest Pay-Per-View event. If you have a Fire TV device, you’ll find it simple to set everything up for the big fights.

On August 7, UFC 265 is broadcasting a night of MMA fights live from the Toyota Center in Houston. The Pay-Per-View Main Event is headlined by two of the biggest baddest heavyweight fighters in the UFC fighting for an interim title.

Derrick “The Black Beast” Lewis (25-7) is already deserving of a proper shot at the undisputed heavyweight title, but the Champion Francis Ngannou needed just a little more time to recover from his last fight. Instead of waiting, the UFC has lined up an interim title fight for Lewis, but he’s going to have to take on a powerful new foe. That opponent is Ciryl “Bon Gamin” Gane (9-0), an undefeated fighter who was the heavyweight champion in a smaller promotion earlier in his career. Can Gane beat the “Black Beast” and earn his way into the octagon with Ngannou?
