UFC 280: Oliveira vs. Makhachev is the big Ultimate Fighting Championship event for October, and since it’s a pay-per-view, you’ll need to hand over some cash to tune in. ESPN+ is the only outlet for streaming live UFC pay-per-view events like these in the United States, so if you’re looking for a way to enjoy all the action online, read on. We’ve got everything you need to know about UFC pay-per-views on ESPN+, including how to sign up, how much it costs, and how you can save.

ESPN+ is a premium streaming service for all things sports, from MMA and boxing to soccer and much, much more. Since launching its streaming platform in 2018, ESPN has continued to develop a very close relationship with the Ultimate Fighting Championship, and in 2022, ESPN+ is the go-to app for streaming UFC content. It’s also the only outlet where you can watch UFC pay-per-view events online. ESPN+ is compatible with virtually all modern PC web browsers and streaming-capable devices, which includes smartphones, tablets, smart TVs, and Xbox and PlayStation gaming consoles.

Subscribing to ESPN+ costs $10 per month or an even cheaper $100 for the first year following a recent price increase (and just $70 per year after that). If you’re after a bigger streaming package — perhaps you’re new to the whole streaming thing, or you’re cutting the cord and ditching cable TV altogether — then the best value by far is the Disney Bundle. This rings in at $14 per month and gets you ESPN+, Disney+, and ad-supported Hulu.

ESPN also offers bundle deals ahead of every UFC PPV event, which is another great way to save on both ESPN+ as well as UFC pay-per-views. Normally, a year’s subscription to ESPN+ would cost you $100, while the price of a UFC PPV ticket is currently $75 (a $5 increase from last year) — a combined total of $175. If you’re new to ESPN+ or a monthly subscriber, though, then you can grab the pay-per-view bundle, which includes a year’s worth of ESPN+ along with the UFC PPV package for just $125, saving you a cool $50.
