How to Watch UFC 264 in the US Without Cable?

If you live in the United States and want to watch all the action from UFC 264 live, you can live stream the UFC 264 event on ESPN+, as there is a partnership between the two sports giants.

Since UFC 264 is a pay-per-view event, an ESPN+ subscription will not be enough to get access to it.

Where to Watch UFC 264 in the Other Countries?

UFC is one of the most popular sports in the world. And with Conor McGregor in action, this weekend's UFC 264 event is sure to get a lot of attention from people all over the world.

UFC 264 Fight Card

If you thought the UFC 263 card was packed, wait till you see the UFC 264 Fight Card. All eyes will be on the Octagon in Las Vegas this weekend as Conor McGregor makes his eagerly awaited return for his trilogy fight against Dustin Poirier. There is no love lost between these two long-time rivals, and McGregor will no doubt want to gain revenge after being shocked by Poirier when the two met in January.

Dustin Poirier rejected the chance to fight for the lightweight title but instead chose a big-money rematch against Conor McGregor. The winner of Saturday's bout could very well be next in line for a shot at the title, which was vacated after Khabib Nurmagomedov's sudden retirement. There will be a lot at stake for both fighters, and McGregor will have his reputation on the line, having lost two of his last three fights.

The rest of the card is also packed with exciting fights and potential show-stealers. Stephen Thompson will take on Gilbert Burns in the co-main event as he looks for another shot at the welterweight title. The veteran fighter goes into the bout as the favorite. Heavyweights Tai Tuivasa and Greg Hardy will also tangle in the Octagon on Saturday.

Another intriguing contest will see two top-five bantamweights aiming to rise up the rankings face off. Irene Aldana will square off with Yana Kunitskaya as they look to close in on a title shot. The winner of this weekend's clash could be in pole position to face the winner of Amanda Nunes' fight against challenger Julianna Pena in August.

Getting the main card underway will be talented bantamweights Sean O’Malley and Kris Moutinho. This fight has the potential to be a show-stealer, with O'Malley one of the most hyped young fighters in the division.

The prelims and early prelims also contain some must-watch fights with the likes of Carlos Condit, Niko Price, Michel Pereira, and Jennifer Maia, among those in action. All in all, UFC 264 promises to be an unmissable event with a stacked card from top to bottom. Here is the Full Card for UFC 264.
