How to stream UFC online
Catch every bone-crunching blow live and on demand.
It’s not cheap being a UFC fan. Tickets for fights typically cost well in excess of $60 each. Even staying home and watching pay-per-view broadcasts can set you back a small fortune. However, in addition to the pay-per-view platform, UFC now offers a monthly subscription service much like Netflix.
UFC Fight Pass combines live coverage of a range of UFC events with a massive library of past fights from numerous combat disciplines. For a fifth of the price of a single Fight Night pay-per-view, you can watch hundreds of hours of UFC content, anytime, anywhere.
What is UFC Fight Pass?
UFC Fight Pass is a subscription streaming service providing live and on-demand streams of the biggest fights and events on the UFC calendar. Compatible with TVs, computers and mobile devices, UFC Fight Pass gives fans 24/7 access to the world of UFC.
UFC Fight Pass is available via a monthly subscription and comes packed with plenty of bang for your buck.
What’s included with the UFC Fight Pass?
In addition, to live coverage of fights from all over the world, you’ll get access to the world’s largest fight library, a collection of original UFC programming and documentaries, and an archive of exclusive behind-the-scenes footage.
All live coverage on UFC Fight Pass is completely exclusive to the service. This includes unique Fight Pass events as well as the opening fights from every UFC event on the calendar, even pay-per-view events. Fight Pass also offers live, unrestricted access to all international UFC Fight Night events. US Fight Night events are not streamed live, but will be available on demand approximately 30 days after their ticket date.
Pay-per-view fights offered through UFC.TV are not available live through UFC Fight Pass. Full replays of these fights will make it to Fight Pass roughly one month later.
What else do I get with the UFC Fight Pass?
Beyond the UFC, Fight Pass features over 100 live combat sports events every year, including MMA events from Invicta FC, Pancrase, Victory FC, Titan FC, BRACE, Shooto Brazil, EFN, Cage Warriors, Shooto Japan, XFO, Vale Tudo Japan, Tech-KREP and AFC. For fans of kickboxing and submission grappling, Fight Pass also offers live coverage of GLORY and EBI events.
As the biggest collection of fights in the world, the UFC Fight Pass library covers over 25 different MMA and combat sports organizations, with more than 10,000 fights available to stream on demand from the likes of UFC, Strikeforce, PRIDE FC, WEC, Affliction, EliteXC, WFA, Invicta FC, Pancrase, King of the Cage, Cage Rage, Extreme Challenge, XFO, UCMMA, Hook N Shoot, TKO, King of the Cage, IVC, IMMAF, Shooto Brazil, Tuff-N-Uff, EFN, GLORY and EBI. The library is constantly growing, with hundreds of new fights added each month.

If you can’t wait the 30 days for a pay-per-view event to make it to Fight Pass, UFC also sells individual events in standard definition (SD) and in high definition (HD).
What devices are compatible with UFC Fight Pass?
UFC Fight Pass works with a wide range of modern devices, including computers, smart TVs, mobile phones and tablets.
To watch Fight Pass on your computer, you’ll need to log in to the UFC Fight Pass website with either a Windows PC running Windows XP or later, or a Mac computer running OS X 10.4 or later.
You’ll also need Adobe Flash Player 10.1 or later and a compatible web browser. UFC recommends either Internet Explorer 6 or later, or Mozilla Firefox 1.5 or later.
If you want to keep up with all the UFC action while you’re out and about, you’ll want to download the UFC mobile app for your Apple or Android device.
The iOS UFC app supports iPhones, iPads and iPod Touch devices running iOS 8.0 and up, while software requirements for the Android UFC app vary by device, so you’ll need to load the Google Play store page on your phone or tablet to determine whether it’s compatible.
Plenty of options are available for watching Fight Pass content on your TV. If you’ve got an Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Xbox One or Xbox 360 gaming console, you’ll find the UFC app available in each of their respective app stores. Similarly, if you own a Samsung, LG or Sony smart TV, you can download the UFC app through each of their digital marketplaces.
Alternatively, the UFC mobile app supports streaming to both Google Chromecast and Apple AirPlay devices over a local Wi-Fi network.
How much data does UFC Fight Pass use?
The amount of data UFC Fight Pass uses depends on both the length of a given fight and the video quality you’re streaming it in. Fight Pass requires a minimum 750kbps internet connection to stream in SD and a solid 3Mbps connection to stream in HD.
A single fight might only go for around 15 minutes, which comes out to approximately 85MB for SD and 225MB for HD. However, a full UFC event often runs for around 3 hours, which works out to roughly 990MB for SD and 4GB for HD.
Where else can I watch UFC online?
The UFC Fight Pass isn’t the only way to stream fights. FuboTV, a sports-centered internet TV streaming service, gives you access to the FS1 channel, where you can watch live fights, weigh-ins, UFC Ultimate Insider and more.
With a fuboTV subscription, you get access to live streams and 30 hours of cloud DVR space so you can save fights for on-demand replays. Forgot to record the fight ?
