Jon Jones and Alexander Gustafsson finally meet again.

As is often the case with UFC fighter Jon Jones, the atmosphere surrounding Saturday’s UFC 232 main event is filled with chaos. Now, Jones—who is one of the most controversial fighters in MMA history because of his arrest record and failed drug tests—is singlehandedly getting the entire card, topped by his main event vs. Alexander Gustafsson, moved from Las Vegas to Inglewood, California, due to a small irregularity with his latest drug test. Fortunately for MMA fans, that won’t impact the Jones vs. Gustafsson live stream, which will determine the UFC light heavyweight championship.

The first time these two fought in 2013, Jones emerged victorious by unanimous decision. Now, they’ll meet again in a rematch. Here’s everything you need to know to watch a UFC 232 live stream.
