UFC Fight Night 2022 has just started and we’ve already seen a bunch of thrilling pay-per-view events, including championship contests and upsets. You will need to sign up for ESPN+ if you want to catch all the action live during these matchups, which showcase the league’s lesser-known and up-and-coming talent.
Generally, the Ultimate Fighting Championship holds fights every Saturday night, as well as one (or sometimes two) big pay-per-view events every month. A UFC pay-per-view package costs $75 in ESPN Plus. UFC Fight Night events, on the other hand, are entirely free to watch if you have ESPN+. The UFC app offers a wealth of UFC content, including live fights, interviews, press conferences, and shows like Dana White’s Contender Series.
ESPN+ is also the only outlet to watch UFC pay-per-view events, and it’s also the only way to watch Saturday UFC Fight Night live streams. Also, it hosts a ton of other sports content (as we mentioned earlier), so you definitely get your money’s worth. In other words, if you want to live stream UFC fights, such as pay-per-view bouts and free Fight Nights, you’ll need an ESPN+ subscription.

UFC 2022 Schedule
UFC follows a straightforward seasonal cycle that starts in January and ends in December, although since fights occur all year round, they aren’t really “seasons” in the sense that many other sports (such as football) run their schedules. Each month, UFC usually offers one or two pay-per-view events, with Fight Nights taking place every Saturday outside of these big PPV events.
