The UFC heads to Singapore on June 11 with two title fights and an exciting rematch. Glover Teixeira faces Jiri Prochazka in the main event and it’ll be Valentina Shevchenko vs. Taila Santos in the co-main event.

In July, we have UFC 276: Adesanya vs. Cannonier and UFC 277: Pena vs. Nunes 2 forming what will be one of the biggest months for the UFC in 2022.

Need to know: UFC fights in the United States are exclusive to the ESPN+ digital streaming service. The UFC formed an important partnership with ESPN+ in 2019 and that means UFC events can no longer be viewed on satellite or cable providers and only by ESPN+ subscribers.

Ready to watch these fantastic PPV fights and all of the regular UFC Fight Night events, as well? Here’s how to get started.

How to watch UFC fights online

The only way to watch UFC fights in the United States is by streaming the fights online with an active ESPN+ subscription. ESPN+ costs $6.99 per month or $69.99 for the annual plan. An ESPN+ subscription enables instant access to all UFC Fight Night events and replays but it does not include UFC PPV events.

An ESPN+ subscription allows fight fans to stream live UFC fights and UFC replays to their preferred devices. If you want to sit back and watch the fights on your TV, desktop computer, laptop, or mobile device, you’ll need an ESPN+ subscription to do so.

UFC PPV events must be purchased separately — and they can only be purchased by ESPN+ subscribers. UFC PPV events feature the biggest and best fights, including the vast majority of title fights. Here’s how to order a UFC PPV event and stream UFC fights online.

If you don’t have an ESPN+ subscription

An ESPN+ subscription is required to watch UFC fights online.

The best way to get started is by purchasing a special UFC PPV and ESPN+ bundle that includes almost $145 of value for just under $100. The bundle includes one-year access to ESPN+ (normally $69.99) and the next upcoming UFC PPV ($74.99) for just $99.98, representing a huge saving for new subscribers.

If you are an ESPN+ subscriber

UFC PPV events can be purchased on the ESPN+ website for $74.99.
