The ESPN+ and UFC PPV Bundle has returned in time for UFC 246: McGregor vs. Cowboy this Saturday.
The promotion enables new subscribers to save more than 25% on their annual ESPN+ subscription by purchasing the upcoming UFC 246 PPV and one-year of ESPN+ for a discounted price of $84.99.
Fans in the United States can only order and watch UFC PPV events if they have an active ESPN+ subscription.
An ESPN+ subscription usually costs $4.99 monthly or $49.99 annually, and the cost of ordering a UFC PPV event in 2020 has increased to $64.99. This means that UFC fans are now required to pay more than ever before to watch all live events.
Fortunately, the ESPN+ and UFC PPV Bundle means that new subscribers can grab the upcoming UFC PPV ($64.99) and one-year of ESPN ($49.99) for the discounted price of $84.99.
Now that the UFC has teamed up with ESPN to distribute all live events, the overwhelming majority of UFC events — including this Saturday’s UFC 246 event — can only be viewed by ESPN+ subscribers.
