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.
