On January 23, Conor McGregor returns to the Octagon in the UFC 257 main event. The former two-division champion will step back inside the cage for the first time since defeating Donald Cerrone in just 40 seconds in January last year.

At UFC 257, McGregor will face former interim lightweight champion Dustin Poirier in a fight that will likely determine who goes on to compete for the UFC Lightweight Championship next. For Poirier, it’ll be an opportunity to avenge his earlier defeat to McGregor at UFC 178 in September 2014.

UFC 257 is a pay-per-view event and that means fans will be required to order the event via the official ESPN website.

In 2019, the UFC finalized a deal with ESPN that would see all live UFC pay-per-view events move to the ESPN+ digital streaming service. It’s no longer possible to order and watch UFC PPV events via traditional cable or satellite providers.

All UFC PPV events — including UFC 257 — can only be viewed live on ESPN+.

An ESPN+ subscription is required to access the UFC 257 event as well as all other live UFC PPV events in 2021. ESPN+ is a digital streaming service that enables fans to watch live sports and shows on their TV’s, computers, laptops, phones, and other smart devices.

It sucks to be a UFC fan which I am. I am actually a huge sports fan of NFL, NBA, and MLB. I am able to watch all my favorite sports and stay up to date with everything for basically no cost unless I attend an event which I do as often as I can afford. I would definitely pay to see UFC fights as I live in Phoenix so Vegas is a short trip. But, paying so much to watch the PPV part of the fights just isn’t available to me especially right now. I was tuning in to one of the sights that allowed you to watch the events I guess illegally but that sight has been taken down. I saw a video where Dana White was angry at “streamers” and I have decided not to pursue this anymore. It looks like I will lose touch with the UFC and not be a participating fan anymore. UFC is a rich man’s sport. I have never been that and even if I were the PPV price is exorbitant for just me to watch. I don’t have any other UFC friends so splitting the cost is out of the question. I really wish there was a way for me to stream the fights. I buy lost of fan gear for all the sports I love and try to collect memorabilia so it’s not like I am not contributing at all. If anyone from the UFC reads this please consider doing something for huge fans that can’t afford to pay so much. I would watch all of the events and attempt to go to fights once the covid situation allows. Isn’t that enough for a dedicated fan? Please help.
