Add UFC to your ESPN+ Annual Plan and save over 25%
Stream anytime, anywhere and never miss a moment of live UFC.
Disney added ESPN+ to its streaming services in 2018, and it’s since gotten over 2 million subscribers. The ESPN+ library of programming comes with access to live games not shown on the ESPN TV network. But games hosted on the network aren’t available on ESPN+ — making it a supplement to the network, rather than a replacement.

While it can’t replace your ESPN cable channel, ESPN+ has a number of features that may make it a valuable addition.
You can still access the ESPN app for free, but you’ll have to be an ESPN+ subscriber to get the complete game-viewing package. Certain live events, on-demand games, highlights and gametime shows are only available to ESPN+ subscribers.
In addition to live and on-demand games, you’ll also get original ESPN shows — including complete access to over 60 installments of the ESPN documentary series, 30 for 30.
Some news, scores, radio stations and podcasts are still available for free through the ESPN app, but only ESPN+ subscribers get total access. Get the latest on upset draft picks, expert predictions and fantasy league draft information with your subscription.
Live games, pre- and post-game shows, on-demand games, ESPN originals and highlights are all available to stream with ESPN+.
You can watch UFC pay-per-view (PPV) events through ESPN+, but it’ll cost you. You can get an annual subscription of ESPN+ with UFC 243 — the next planned PPV event as of September 2019 — for $79.98. That means you’re essentially paying $30 for UFC.
One of the main draws of ESPN+ is the number of devices you can use it on.
You can get ESPN+ for $4.99 a month, or $49.99 a year. The subscription can be canceled at any time.
