What channel is the UFC fight tonight?

UFC 295 is an exclusive UFC PPV event in the U.S., and it will be broadcast tonight, Saturday, November 11. The main event will be streamed on ESPN+, and you’ll need to buy the PPV. While the fight won’t be broadcast on ESPN, so this technically isn’t a channel, you can still watch it on any smart TV, phone or computer with an ESPN+ account. You can read more about your sign up options below.

While the main event costs $80 and is streamed exclusively on ESPN+ PPV, there are more fights happening at the event that you can stream for cheaper, or even for free. At 6:15 p.m. ET, a round of early prelim fights start streaming on ESPN+ and YouTube, from the ESPNMMA account. There are four fights of various weight classes. At 8:00 p.m. ET, ESPN+ and ESPNMMA on YouTube will broadcast four more prelim fights. Then finally, around 10:00 p.m. ET, the main event starts. It will feature five total fights including an interim title fight and the Light Heavyweight Championship bout between Jiří Procházka and Alex Pereira.

How to watch the UFC 295 live stream

The main card of UFC 295 is an ESPN+ exclusive PPV. That means you’ll have to buy the event and also be an ESPN+ subscriber. The PPV portion of the event costs $80, and there’s no way around that. There are, however, a few different options for buying the ESPN+ subscription. Unfortunately there isn’t an ESPN+ free trial, so the cheapest option is to get one month of ESPN+ for $11, bringing the total for the event to $91. If you don’t yet have a Disney+ or Hulu account, you can buy the Disney Bundle for $15. This gets you access to all three streaming sites, so it’s definitely worth it if you’re interested in even two of them.

The third option is a special promotion for this UFC event. You can currently buy the PPV and a year of ESPN+ for $135. Since a year of ESPN+ is normally $110, this is saving you $55 total. This is a great chance for UFC fans to grab an ESPN+ subscription and save some money. Remember, you’ll have to be an ESPN+ subscriber for the next UFC PPV too, so you might as well have a membership.

If you want to watch UC 295 early prelims and prelims, you don’t actually need any subscriptions at all. They will all stream on the ESPNMMA YouTube account. They will also stream on ESPN+, so if you already have an account or buy one for UFC 295, you can stream them there too. If you’re not in the U.S. there are a wide variety of options for watching around the world, all of which are PPVs. You can also just use one of the best VPNs for streaming to connect to a server in the U.S. and watch the fight that way.

UFC live stream: How to watch UFC from anywhere, legally

High-speed internet has made it easy and economical for millions of people to "cut the cord" and ditch traditional cable or satellite TV in favor of online streaming services. But due to regional broadcasting restrictions, sports fans had to wait a while longer to enjoy live and on-demand content. Movies and TV shows have been available on services like Netflix, Hulu, and Prime Video for about a decade now, and today's 4K smart TVs even come with built-in internet connectivity and pre-loaded streaming apps -- but only recently have broadcasters like ESPN done the same thing for live-action sports, including UFC live streams like UFC 295 tomorrow.

The world’s biggest mixed martial arts fighting league has joined with ESPN to bring you all of your favorite UFC content in 2023, both online and on TV. Fox previously held exclusive broadcasting rights to UFC through 2018, but starting in 2019, the contract went to ESPN. ESPN rolled out its own premium streaming service called ESPN+ in the spring of 2018. This is great news for MMA fans, as the UFC's tight relationship with ESPN now makes it easy to stream UFC fights online. Although some fight cards are broadcast on ESPN's TV channel and UFC Fight Pass, ESPN+ is the only venue for watching UFC PPVs online, including the UFC 295 live stream. This means that for the foreseeable future, all Ultimate Fighting Championship content is airing only on this network, and if you're looking for the best way to watch every UFC live stream online, ESPN+ is what you need.
