This year the UFC entered into a new partnership with ESPN. That's great news for the UFC and the expansion of the sport of MMA, but bad news for consumer choice. Especially if you're one of the UFC fans who want to watch UFC live in the US.
The only way to watch the fight is to stream UFC on ESPN+. You’ll need to sign up for an ESPN+ subscription, and then pay the $69.99 pay-per-view price. The total cost will be $75. Your ESPN+ subscription continues for 30 days afterwards, and includes free streaming of UFC Fight Night, live sports and access to the entire ESPN+ library of on-demand content.
New ESPN Plus subscribers can buy a bundle of one UFC PPV event (streaming in HD) and an ESPN Plus annual recurring subscription for $90. This is a decent deal. The previous bundle gave a saving of 25% but this new bundle is a 35% saving.
