What are the best UFC live stream websites?

From the best shows to the best restaurants, we’re compelled to rank everything around us. And for some mixed martial arts fanatics, ranking the best athletes, fighters, or fights just doesn’t seem enough. With the number of different disciplines practiced by different fighters, many would want to know what fighting style could defeat all. This led to the birth of the Ultimate Fighting Champion, a tournament designed to answer the question. Who would have thought that what started as a one-time MMA show would eventually become one of the most successful fighting competitions to date? It’s brutal, it’s violent, and yet more and more people can’t get enough of the UFC.

Grappling? Check. WrestlingWresting? Check. Jiu Jit Su? Boxing? Judo? Check, check, check! Locked inside a cage called the octagon, fighters have the liberty to use all the moves they have to defeat the opponent. Well, maybe not all. The organization doesn’t allow biting, hair pulling, fish-hooking, eye-gouging, grabbing the fence, and a couple more foul moves. In their defense, these aren’t martial arts so it’s only fair. If you like the no-holds-barred style of fighting where fighters can do so much more than just throwing punches, what better way is there to watch the UFC than live on stage—uh, I mean cage? Well, it really is the best way but if we can’t watch it live, then perhaps a free UFC live stream would be second best? Luckily, we’ve compiled the best sites to watch UFC for free!

    "Aside from the app, I am glad that I can also use my fight pass when I wanna catch the fight while still at work. My boss even sits beside me to watch along. Great versatility of service! 👍"

WHAT'S THE MEANING

UFC is an acronym that stands for Ultimate Fighting Championship. It is a major organization that promotes MMA fights and events around the world. MMA stands for mixed martial arts and refers to the actual sport that the UFC promotes.

DID YOU KNOW?

UFC 1: The Beginning, the first-ever UFC event, happened on November 12, 1993? It was held at the McNichols Sports Arena in Dever, Colorado. It was broadcasted live on pay-per-view and released on home video afterward. For its first major event, the UFC only had one goal, to determine the most effective martial art in battle. It had very minimal rules and no weight class restrictions. Fighters realized that having more than one martial art discipline was more ideal in the unpredictable nature of the contest. This helped create the mixed martial arts that we know of today. The UFC has grown to become one of the most popular sporting events in the world since those early days. In fact, it has seen major coverage in various sports authorities and sports streaming sites. There have been plenty of memorable MMA fights over the years that you can look back to. There are plenty of Ultimate Fighting Championship live streaming sites for that. The UFC and MMA fighting is here to stay and we're not complaining one bit.

    "This solution is great for users living in the british side. Being a big fan of this combat sport, I have catched UFC's fights in the comfort of my home. But after being relocated to UK for my work, and without tv, I hooked up a subscription on their service. And they didn't disappoint me. So I also suggest this to you guys."

    "I hope that the pricing of the live matches here would change after the Khabib-McGregor match. I am hoping to watch Nate Diaz' fight for a bit cheaper price and I am asking YouTube because I don't have subscription to other websites."
