Watch UFC 257 Live On ESPN+ in the United States

ESPN owns broadcasting rights for UFC matches, PPV events, and weekly fight nights. You can watch the fights with an ESPN+ PPV subscription for only $5.99 per month. Need a better subscription bundle? Go for ESPN with Hulu and Disney for only $12.99 per month to watch live sports and countless TV shows.

If you are one of those who stream UFC matches every week, then a UFC Bundle might cost you $84.98 per year including an ESPN+ subscription. This gives you unlimited access to UFC matches, Ariel and The Bad Guy, Dana White’s Contender Series, and UFC Destined.

But ESPN doesn’t work everywhere and you cannot access the service from outside the USA, even if you are a paid subscriber. You have to use a VPN app to watch McGregor vs Poirier on ESPN from anywhere else in the world.

Stream UFC 257 Live on BT Sport in the United Kingdom

UFC fights are live exclusively on BT Sport, whether you are in the UK or Ireland. You can enjoy all Weekly Fight Night as well as after-fight analysis and prelims, live. The best part is BT Sport subscribers can watch main events such as McGregor vs Poirier without any UFC fight pass or extra bundle.

On top of that, stream live MMA fights on the BT Sports app on the go if you are in travel mode. If you are in the UK right now then you are in luck, pal. However, BT Sport is not available from outside the UK for existing and new subscribers. You have to use a VPN app exactly like we shared above and unlock BT Sport from abroad.

Watch Live UFC Fights and PPV Events in Canada

Another option is getting a UFC Fight Pass that gives you access to live UFC events and 1,000+ hours of combat sports at the tip of your fingers.

Further, you can enjoy UFC events on TSN if you happen to be in Canada on Saturday. TSN offers exclusive sports content from around the globe.

Don’t have access to Sky Arena and UFC Fight Pass? Switch to ESPN (US) or Match TV (Russia) to satisfy your UFC FOMO. Although you need to buy an ESPN subscription, Match TV features live main events for free.
