Where to Stream the 2019 World's Ultimate Strongman Competition

Last year marked the arrival of the first ever World’s Ultimate Strongman competition, and to no one’s surprise, Hafþór Björnsson—a.k.a. The Mountain—ended up winning the top prize. The one-day competition features six different events, and this year’s events include a truck pull, a log press, and a yoke press. A max-weight deadlift will also take place as part of the festivities the night before competition.

The 2019 competition is set to begin on Friday, October 25th. Here’s how you can watch.

How to watch the 2019 World’s Ultimate Strongman competition

The 2019 World’s Ultimate Strongman competition is being held in Dubai, and fans will be able to view the competition via a ticketed live stream on October 25, starting at 3 p.m. Gulf Standard Time. World’s Strongest Man 2017 champ Eddie Hall isn’t competing, but he’ll be providing live commentary on the stream.

For those on the East Coast, that will be 7 a.m. EST, and for those on the West Coast, it’ll start at a very early 4 a.m. PST. The live stream link is here, and it costs $1.99.

Who will be competing in the 2019 World’s Ultimate Strongman competition?

Competitors this year include:

And while The Mountain is listed as a competitor on the event’s official site, BarBend reports that Björnsson will be sitting this one out. The strongman posted a YouTube video clarifying that he’ll be in attendance for the event, but he won’t actually be competing.

For fans hoping to see him face off with reigning World’s Strongest Man Martins Licis, that might be disappointing. For now, you’ll just have to settle for the fun photos the two shared from their time palling around Dubai.
