Another weekend, another UFC event. This time, Fabricio Werdum plans to improve on his 18-5-1 record when he takes on the “Super Samoan” Mark Hunt for the Interim Heavyweight Title.

To help you keep track of all the action, we’ve put together this simple watch guide for the big event. Most options require a bit of dough to stream the fight, but are you going to let that stop you from missing monster hits? We didn’t think so.

What follows is our guide on how to watch all the action at UFC 180, including the main event.

Streaming

If you don’t have cable or a Roku box, you can watch the fight using your computer through the Internet by going to UFC.TV. The site streams the event, and you have multiple viewing options to choose from. For instance, you can pay $55 for access to an HD stream, or $45 for an SD stream. You can also pay for term-based passes which offer discounts on streams for future fights. YouTube also offers a stream of the event, but it costs about the same.

Mobile

Tablet and smartphone users have options too. You can download the UFC TV app for iOS, Android, and Blackberry. Similar to the streaming services offered, the mobile versions require a fee to get access to the fights.

Set top box

Due to the fact that cable continues to be expensive and stressful to deal with, many people are ditching their subscriptions for set top boxes.There exists a number of options for streaming the upcoming fights with set top boxes. Whether you have a Playstation, Xbox, or Roku, you have the ability to access this event using apps on those devices. Just download the appropriate app on your device, and start streaming.

Questionable streaming sites

There are a wide variety of online streaming sites which grant access to many live sporting events. These sites provide multiple streams, but most of them come packed with spam, malware, and pop-ups. We don’t recommend these sites.

Sites like First Row Sports or VIPBox Sports are some of the most popular picks when it comes to watching streams of sporting events online. While these might be of use, the hassle of having to avoid spam and deal with low quality streams makes these services more of an inconvenience than a help.

As a rule of thumb, never click on any link which asks you to download any HD Players, update your streaming software, or install any “required” media players. These are often just spam links which could infect your computer with malware.

Other resources

Reddit’s UFC page

An incredible resource of pre-fight videos, articles, and various UFC-specific content, the UFC subreddit is sure to please any and all fight fans. The site may provide additional links for viewing the upcoming fight, but do keep in mind that many of these could link you to a questionable streaming site.

Nevertheless, the astounding amount of daily content uploaded by Reddit’s loyal band of users is sure to satisfy your UFC needs leading up to the big event. Reddit has the ability to consume entire weekends in the blink of an eye, so don’t say that we didn’t warn you.

ESPN’s Werdum vs. Hunt Fight HQ

Though this is not an option for live video streams during the event, ESPN offers plenty of videos, statistics, and insight into the upcoming event. Leading up to the fight, ESPN’s fight analysts preview the bout, and give their picks on who will end up victorious. During the fight, fans have access to fight statistics, fan conversations, and various information about the event.

ESPN also covers each of the other fights that are scheduled to take place at UFC 180.
