How to Watch UFC on PlayStation

By Lore Apostol / February 15, 2022

The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is one of the most popular sporting events in the world, and millions of fans watch them every time their favorite fighters enter the arena. To watch the UFC fights, you need a subscription. However, the UFC pay-per-view (PPV) fights need to be purchased separately. UFC matches are available on a lot of devices considering their popularity, including on iOS, Android, consoles, smart TVs, and streaming devices, so let's see how to watch UFC on PlayStation.

Where to Watch UFC

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

UFC Fights on ESPN+

You can watch your favorite Fight Nights live with one simple step: all you need to do is to subscribe to ESPN+. You can either select the monthly plan, which costs $6.99 per month, or a yearly plan for a better price overall and pay $69.99 per year. Since UFC Fight Nights are not pay-per-view events, nothing more is required.

Besides the standalone ESPN+ subscription, there's also another option. 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. 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.

What Supported PS Devices Are Supported by ESPN+?

We can surely tell you that Sony PlayStation 4 and 5 consoles are definitely compatible. Here is a breakdown of the console models that can run the ESPN app, as per the ESPN Plus website:
