Where can I watch the UFC?

You can stream all UFC pay-per-view (PPV) fights only with ESPN+, as this streaming service is the exclusive broadcaster for these events in the U.S.

All UFC numbered events are $79.99 on top of the ESPN+ membership fee—and if you plan to watch UFC all year long we recommend ordering ESPN+’s annual membership to save $22.

Bellator MMA is still searching for a service to call home since SHOWTIME® dissolved its sports content in December 2023.

The next planned event for Bellator MMA is on Feb. 24, 2024, shared with the Professional Fighters League. PFL vs. Bellator MMA Champs, the first event of its kind, will be streamable on ESPN+ PPV.

Bellator has a title fight slated for March 22, 2024, so be ready to hear where this MMA league will live shortly.

Where can I watch the Professional Fighters League (PFL)?

You can watch the PFL live on ESPN or stream on ESPN+.

Since the PFL season doesn’t start until April, the only matchup on PFL’s schedule is the PFL vs. Bellator MMA event on Feb. 24, 2024. You’ll also be able to stream this event on ESPN+ with a PPV fee.

If you plan to only stream PFL on ESPN+ from April to November, the monthly membership route is the way to go ($11). If you plan on also streaming some F1 races, MLB games, soccer matches, and NHL action, you’ll save $22 per year with the annual membership ($110).

If you want to watch PFL with a TV service, Sling TV is the cheapest option at $40 per month. We’ve highlighted other TV services with the ESPN channel in the table below if you’re shopping for providers.

Where can I watch ONE Championship?

There are four ways to stream ONE Championship fights: Amazon Prime Video or ONE Championship’s website, Facebook page, or YouTube channel.

You can stream all of ONE Championship’s Fight Nights on Prime Video for free (no extra fee). And for the ONE Championship fans who don’t want another monthly subscription, you can pull up live Fight Nights through ONE Championship’s website, Facebook page, and YouTube Channel.

For Friday Fights, MMA fans can stream for free on ONE Championship’s website, Facebook page, and YouTube Channel—and you can cast them to your TV. These particular fights won’t be available on Prime Video.

Some number cards, like ONE 165, are PPV and are only available on ONE Championship’s website—but ONE PPV events are as rare as the Von Flue Choke.
