This first step is actually the most important one. There are numerous UFC-oriented platforms for your Firestick, so let’s reveal the best one right now.

What’s the Best UFC Streaming Platform for Amazon Firestick & Fire TV? 

Right now, the best UFC streaming platform for your Firestick is ESPN+. If you want everything that UFC offers and brings, this should be your go-to platform. 

Tip

Aside from offering regular UFC events, ESPN+ gives you access to UFC’s PPV events. Therefore, this truly is an all-in-one platform for all your needs. Go ahead and get your ESPN Plus + UFC bundle, and access everything this platform offers.

You’re probably wondering what kinds of content this platform brings. Well, you get access to both regular and PPV UFC events, including a rich library of on-demand content as well. We’re talking about UFC’s Fight Nights, Dana White’s Contender Series, as well as pretty much all of UFC’s original programming. 

Sounds interesting, right? If that’s so, don’t forget to get your ESPN+ subscription. Create a user account and prepare your credentials, as we’ll soon show you how to activate ESPN+ on your Amazon Firestick.

Are There Other Options for Streaming UFC on Fire TV? 

By far, ESPN+ is the best (and the most affordable) way to dive into the world of UFC events. However, this isn’t the only option, as you’re about to see. 

Step #2: Install & Activate ESPN+ on Your Amazon Firestick

In case you’ve listened to our advice, you’ve already subscribed to ESPN+. If not, make sure to use the provided link, and get your subscription. Then, proceed to install and activate ESPN+ on your Firestick. 

So far, you’ve installed the ESPN app. Know that ESPN+ ‘lives’ inside that app, which means that you need to activate it. Here’s how that is done. 

You have now authorized your Fire TV to access your ESPN+ subscription. With that said, you can now watch UFC on your Firestick of Fire TV – including plenty of other types of sports-related content.

Tip

The method displayed above takes you through installing the ESPN app manually, from Amazon’s App Store. However, you can speed up this process by visiting ESPN app’s overview of Amazon’s website. Log-in to your account and download the app remotely.

You should know that ESPN+ is available in the United States only. Sadly, this applies to a large number of other UFC-focused OTT platforms. However, this is something you can bypass – which is done by using a VPN application. Learn how to watch ESPN+ outside the US.

Tip

Streaming platforms like ESPN+ can be quite hard to unblock outside of their supported regions. Therefore, you need a highly powerful VPN application – such as ExpressVPN

If you decide to use ExpressVPN, you can count on unblocking ESPN+ on a wide range of devices. However, keep in mind that this VPN offers a native Fire OS app as well. In comparison to other VPNs, ExpressVPN comes with the simplest way of getting started. 

Once you install this VPN, all it takes to access ESPN+ is to open its application and connect to a US-based server. In turn, this gives you a new IP address, so you can stream both on-demand and live UFC events – without ever heaving to leave your Fire TV’s interface. 

To continue learning more about this type of software, here’s our article on why you need a VPN for your Firestick. We’ve listed five good reasons there, and we’re sure they’ll teach you the basics of what to expect.

To help you get started with this VPN, we’ve prepared a handy (and a highly detailed) guide. Of course, the first step is to get your ExpressVPN subscription. After that, you’ll want to know how to install ExpressVPN on Amazon Firestick and Fire TV.
