UFC live stream: watch Fight Night and PPV events online anywhere

The Ultimate Fighting Championship, or UFC as it's better known, is without question the world's biggest MMA (mixed martial arts) promotion. Octagon stars like Conor McGregor, Jon 'Bones' Jones, and Holly Holm are some of the biggest draws in the entire sports world, while the often vicious and always unpredictable nature of MMA fights mean that title belts change hands regularly.

This usually happens at the promotion's monthly numbered PPV events, which resumed in May with UFC 249 and Justin Gaethje's career defining victory over Tony Ferguson. Building up to these, UFC Fight Nights help separate the best from the rest and are also back in action this May after a Covid-19 enforced shutdown period. 

Follow our guide and you'll see just how easy it is to find a trustworthy UFC stream online and never miss a second of Octagon action ever again. Whether you're a dedicated UFC Fight Night fan or just tune in for the big cards, here's how to watch a UFC live stream from anywhere in the world.

As we've said, the biggest UFC fights are reserved for its 'numbered' events. These take place once a month - so UFC 249 in May (delayed due to the coronavirus), UFC 250 in June and so on. They're typically available on a pay-per-view basis and held at big name venues in the US, though these are likely to be closed doors affairs for the time being - as has been in the case recently in Jacksonville.

On top of that, a second-tier of events exist called UFC Fight Nights. These are held on a weekly basis and occur all over the globe, usually featuring up-and-coming local fighters. They're still a darn big deal, though, being held at huge international venues with tickets changing hands for hundreds of dollars. 

Both types of UFC events are shown exclusively on ESPN and the ESPN+ streaming service in the US, usually taking place on Saturday nights. There's also a third series of Octagon bashes called 'UFC on ESPN' - these occur intermittently and air on one of ESPN's TV channels in America.
