UFC live stream on ESPN Plus at $6.99 (offer 2022)

In the United States, UFC is exclusively broadcast on ESPN. The “Fight Night”-themed and PPV events are exclusively available on ESPN+. For a limited time, you can watch certain UFC events for free with Hulu / Sling subscriptions.

It can be confusing to figure out how to watch UFC events, whether you are a fan of Conor McGregor or Jon Jones. However, there is good news: since its sale to ESPN in 2019, the premier mixed martial arts organization has simplified its events and content into a few key areas, and if you break them down, you can start watching after a few minutes.

UFC debuted on ESPN+ with a showdown between flyweight champion Henry Cejudo and bantamweight champion TJ Dillashaw for the flyweight title. There are many other excellent UFC events to stream on ESPN+, but you can only stream them through the ESPN+ service.

About UFC Fight Night

UFC Fight Night first aired on Spike TV in August 2005 under the name UFC Ultimate Fight Night. UFC Fight Nights are exclusively available on ESPN+ since January 2019, while UFC on ABC and UFC on ESPN continues to air on their respective channels. The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) was an MMA reality TV show that featured aspiring MMA fighters under the tutelage of well-known UFC stars.

Recently, ESPN+ brought back the reality show, The Return of the Ultimate Fighter, with weekly episodes.

Steps How to Live Stream UFC Fights on ESPN+

  1. Navigate to ESPN.com using your favorite web browser.
  2. Click the silhouette icon in the upper-right corner of the page and select Login.
  3. Select login, then enter your email address and password for your ESPN+ account (You will have to sign up for an ESPN+ subscription if you don’t already have one. A cable subscription with ESPN does not grant you access to ESPN+ streams).
  4. Click on the UFC fight stream. (If the fight is currently happening, or about to happen, it should show up front and center. If you don’t see it, click further down the page, or search for UFC to find it.)

ESPN does not offer a free trial service, so it’s not possible to stream UFC on ESPN+ for free. ESPN Plus’s free trial was offered in the past but ended in 2020.

The ESPN+ subscription is fairly inexpensive, especially compared to the cost of a regular PPV UFC event, so if you intend to watch the match, it’s worth keeping.
