Earlier this week, UFC President Dana White issued a stern warning to anyone even thinking about broadcasting UFC 257: Poirier vs. McGregor 2 online illegally. Now that it’s the day of the fight, we’re here to save you a click by reiterating that there isn’t a free UFC 257 stream. This is a pay-per-view event, so you need to part with some of your hard-earned cash if you want to watch the action unfold live.
Fortunately, it couldn’t be easier to watch UFC 257online tonight. The event is being broadcast to the nation exclusively through ESPN+. Pricing is set at $70 for the UFC 257 PPV, though new ESPN+ subscribers can save $40 when they bundle it with an annual membership to the streaming service, which will be required to watch all future UFC 2021 PPV event, coming in at $90 all-in.
Just as a dog isn’t just for Christmas, ESPN+ isn’t just for UFC. The streaming service is also the leading destination for both live and archived MLB, MLS, NBA, and NHL matches, and PGA Golf, Top Rank Boxing, and the United Soccer League. That’s right — archived. This means can watch back the latest fights, games, and matches — even if you previously watched them live — at no added cost.
You’ll need to act fast, though: The so-called ‘ESPN+ UFC 257 PPV Bundle’ is only valid before the event starts. As a reminder, by signing up now, you’re saving $40 on what it would usually cost to take out the ESPN+ subscription needed to tune into UFC fights and for the UFC 257 PPV. If you’re a sports fan and can see yourself using ESPN+ again in the future, it’s a no-brainer.
