How to Watch UFC on Apple TV

By Lore Apostol / February 15, 2022

The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) events are diverse, and for some, you only need a subscription, while others are pay-per-view (PPV) fights that need to be purchased separately on top of that subscription.

UFC matches are available on a lot of devices considering they are some of the most popular sporting events in the world, with millions of fans watching them every time their favorite fighters enter the arena. You can watch on iOS, Android, consoles, smart TVs, and streaming devices, so let's see how to watch UFC on Apple TV.

Where to Watch UFC

You can watch UFC fights through the ESPN+ platform or through the UFC Fight Pass service.

UFC Fights on ESPN+

Things are pretty simple here - all you need to do is to subscribe to ESPN+ and watch your favorite Fight Nights live. You can either go for the monthly plan, which costs $6.99 per month, or Select the yearly plan and pay $69.99 per year.

If you are not interested in the standalone ESPN+ subscription, you can save 25% compared to the monthly cost of subscribing separately to each of these three services if you choose to bundle ESPN+, Hulu, and Disney+. The Disney Bundle costs $13.99 per month with ad-supported Hulu or $19.99 with Hulu No Ads.

Since UFC Fight Nights are not pay-per-view events, nothing more is required. If you're also interested in the PPV events, read below.


We should mention that an ESPN+ subscription only allows you to watch the Main Card of a UFC PPV event. So, if you want to see all the bouts, you can go for the UFC Fight Pass subscription. This service offers access to the Early Prelims from the biggest UFC pay-per-view cards along with over 200 live events from promotions such as Invicta FC, GLORY Kickboxing, QUINTET (Team Submission Grappling), Eddie Bravo Invitational, Polaris, and many more for $9.99 per month or $95.99 per year.
