ESPN+ is a subscription-based streaming service owned by the giant cable network of the same name. Subscribers can utilize the service to follow a wide range of sporting events including all of UFC fights. ESPN+ has been able to obtain exclusive rights to displaying UFC content of all categories and is not limited to just premiering mega-events, unlike many other similar services out there.

Moreover, ESPN+ is a comprehensive online repository of all UFC events to date, this means that users can watch the grandest battles in UFC history with the click of a button.

The service is extremely cheap and costs users merely 6.99 USD per month. You can also purchase ESPN+ at discounted rates of 69.99 USD a year if you choose to pay for the entire year upfront.


As the name suggests, UFC Fight Pass is the official streaming service of the UFC franchise.

Much like ESPN+ UFC Fight Pass is a subscription-based streaming service where you can follow everything related to UFC in real-time.

Again, like ESPN+, UFC Fight Pass is a comprehensive repository of all past UFC events. But being a dedicated service UFC Fight Pass subscribers cannot use Fight Pass to watch other forms of sports, though the service does offer access to a few combat sporting events from third parties.

In addition to sporting events, the service also offers subscribers behind-the-scenes clips from fighters as they prepare for much-anticipated clashes. Viewers can also watch exclusive fighter interviews and training routines, and other niche content that no other streaming service can hope to get their hands on.

UFC Fight Pass is on the pricier side, costing users almost 10 USD per month or a whopping 100 USDs per year but the price is nothing for millions of super fans around the world.


Unlike the other options mentioned in this list, Sling TV is not a streaming service dedicated to combat sports or even sports in general. Instead, Sling TV is a Live TV streaming service that offers a variety of channels including sports channels like ESPN and Fox Sports, both of which subscribers can use to follow UFC action Live online.

The service offers two plans, with the basic one costing 25 USDs a month while the premium one costs users $35 a month.

Sling TV also offers a 7-day free trial to its users so that they can experiment with the service and assess its content before making the purchase.


All three platforms mentioned in this list have their own unique advantages and disadvantages. For instance, while UFC Fight Pass offers users access to exclusive content clippings from the UFC world, the platform is fairly limited when it comes to other forms of entertainment.

Similarly, ESPN+ gives users the ability to watch a variety of different sports but does not offer access to behind exclusives.

Finally, Sling TV might be the most expensive option on the list but it gives users a more expansive and comprehensive entertainment experience.

The service you choose must depend on your unique entertainment needs.
