How to watch the UFC 270 live stream online in the U.S.
There’s no free UFC 270 live stream, unfortunately. Instead, ESPN+ holds the exclusive broadcast rights to the pay-per-view event in the U.S. as it has teamed up with UFC President Dana White to ensure there are no illegal broadcasts going on. It’s the absolute best place to live stream UFC fights.
You’ll need to pay to watch UFC 270 online, and since this is the first UFC pay-per-view of 2022, it’s not one you’ll want to miss (especially with two highly anticipated championship contests on the main card). It isn’t the cheapest but it’s sure to be worth it. The UFC 270 PPV is available to existing ESPN+ subscribers for $75. However, new ESPN+ members can grab an annual subscription and the UFC PPV for $100. That’s a savings of $45 on the usual price if you bought them separately.
The headliners on the UFC 270 main card are the UFC Heavyweight Championship bout between Ngannou and Gane, preceded by the UFC Flyweight Championship trilogy bout between Brandon Moreno and Deiveson Figueiredo. Also on the main card is a welterweight fight between Michel Pereira and André Fialho, along with a bantamweight matchup between Cody Stamann and Said Nurmagomedov. In the wake of some last-minute lineup changes, the early preliminary bout between welterweights Trevin Giles and Michael Morales was bumped up to the main card, as well.
ESPN+ is the best place for all your UFC streams and other sporting needs. Besides letting you easily live stream UFC events, it’s home to plenty of other live and on-demand sports content. That includes PGA Golf, MLB, NHL, NBA, and MLS. There’s also exclusive programming including shows, movies, and documentaries, as well as ESPN+’s extensive archive of highlights and past events.
ESPN+ itself goes for $7 per month or $70 per year, but the better bargain is to sign up for the Disney Bundle for just $14 per month. This gets you access to ESPN+ along with Disney+ and basic ad-supported Hulu for a 25% discount, effectively getting you ESPN+ for free. That works out as a savings of $8 per month on the combined cost of the individual streaming services and means plenty of entertainment for the whole family.
Whatever you decide, signing up for ESPN+ right now is the perfect way to see UFC 270 live when it kicks off tonight. The main card (which is the pay-per-view portion of the event) begins at 10 PM ET/7 PM PT. You won’t regret it, and signing up for an annual subscription means plenty more sports for the next 12 months, too. Looking at it that way, it’s a win-win!
