UFC live stream: watch Fight Night and PPV events online anywhere

UFC, or the Ultimate Fighting Championship in full, is the world's premier mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion, with stars like Conor McGregor, Jon Jones, and Holly Holm some of the biggest draws in all of sports. The often vicious and always unpredictable nature of MMA fights mean that title belts change hands regularly, usually at the promotion's monthly numbered PPV events, which resumed in May with UFC 249 and Justin Gaethje's stunning victory of Tony Ferguson.

Follow our guide and you'll see just how easy it is to find a reliable UFC live stream online and never miss a second of Octagon action ever again. Whether you're a dedicated UFC Fight Night fan or just tune in for the big cards, here's how to watch UFC events wherever you are.

The biggest UFC fights are reserved for its 'numbered' events. These take place once a month – so UFC 249 in May (delayed due to the coronavirus), UFC 250 in June and so on. They're typically available on a pay-per-view basis and held at big name venues in the US, though these are likely to be behind closed doors affairs for the time being.

On top of that, a second-tier of events exist called UFC Fight Nights. These are held on a weekly basis and occur all over the globe, usually featuring up-and-coming local fighters. They're still a darn big deal, though, being held at huge international venues with tickets changing hands for hundreds of dollars. 

Both types of UFC events are shown exclusively on the ESPN+ streaming service in the US and almost always take place on Saturdays. There's also a third series of Octagon bashes called 'UFC on ESPN' – these occur intermittently and air on one of ESPN's TV channels in America. For the events that matter most, follow our guide and find out the best ways to watch a UFC live stream wherever you are.

UFC live stream: how to watch Blaydes vs dos Santos at Fight Night 166 online from anywhere

Two of UFC's most highly rated heavyweights go into battle in North Carolina on Saturday night. It's shaping up to be one of Fight Night's most intriguing clashes for some time, and you watch every moment as it happens with our UFC live stream guide below.

Illinois' Curtis Blaydes faces former champ Junior dos Santos in a showdown that both men will see see as a stepping stone to a title shot against current belt holder Stipe Miocic.

The two fighters share a common low point, having both been on the receiving end of defeats to Francis Ngannou, with Dos Santos losing TKO to the Cameroonian-French star in his last outing. Despite those setbacks, past form shows both brawlers remain more than worthy challengers for the heavyweight crown.

Blaydes boasts a bunch of formidable stats including nine out of his 12 wins coming via KO, and holds also the record for the most number of takedowns in UFC's history. And prior to his defeat to Ngannou, Dos Santos had been on an impressive streak of three wins against big hitters Blagoy Ivanov, Tai Tuivasa and Derrick Lewis.

It looks set to be an enthralling showdown and its you can watch the action in its entirety by following our UFC Fight Night live stream guide below.
