ESPN Plus has been a huge hit with baseball, soccer, and NFL fans since its launch, but after striking an exclusive deal with the PPV (UFC) in 2019, it’s now a near-indispensable subscription for MMA fans in the U.S.
Under the terms of the deal, ESPN Plus PPV has the right to live stream all UFC events in the United States. Therefore, ESPN Plus will now host every Fight Night and numbered PPV event (although the latter still requires a paid PPV subscription).
Even though ESPN Plus is more of a supplement than an actual replacement for ESPN’s regular cable service, its exclusive access to big fights makes it pretty much an essential purchase for UFC fans. Check out the UFC ESPN Plus price list and discover what exclusive content you can enjoy.
