The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is surging in popularity week by week. The UFC's ability to resume far earlier than most other sports during the coronavirus pandemic gave pundits some live action to watch during lockdown. The most recent big PPV event was Adesanya vs Costa UFC 253. Following that is UFC 254 Khabib vs Gaethje.
While Conor McGregor has been absent from the Octagon, the Irishman rumoured to return to action in January 2021, stars like Jon Jones, Nurmagomedov, Israel Adesanya and Australian due Alex Volkanovski and Robert Whittaker have all improved their standings and become headline, must-watch acts.
How to watch UFC in Australia
Watching pay-per-view broadcasts can set UFC Australia fans back a small fortune, yet there are ways to tune in that won't break the bank. Foxtel iQ, Foxtel Now, Kayo Sports, Fetch TV and the sport's own UFC Fight Pass are all options. While you're here, check out our UFC schedule to keep track of this year's events.
Live stream UFC in HD with Kayo Sports
Kayo Sports offers selected parts of all UFC Main Events with replays available as well. This is thanks to Kayo's access to ESPN content. ESPN has access to the prelims for the headline UFC events, but not the main card. That can only be watched through UFC Fight Pass and Foxtel Main Event.
But Kayo Sports does broadcast entire UFC Fight Nights, which often features some major fighters such as Brian Ortega's comeback victory over the 'Korean Zombie', Chan Sung Jung, on 18 October AEDT.
Kayo also offers a bunch of special features, including SpitView (watch four channels at once), No Spoilers (hide scores), Key Moments (a timeline of the biggest highlights of a match), Interactive Stats, choose your own camera and more. You can read all about it in our Kayo Sports review.
Subscribers get to choose between two price points - $25/month to be able to watch on two screens at the same time or $35/month to enjoy three streams. A 14-day free trial is available for new customers, so you can check it all out with ease.
Live stream UFC in HD with Foxtel
Foxtel broadcasts the same selected parts of UFC events, including live coverage of UFC Fight Night, as Kayo Sports. To be able to watch, you will need the Sport Package, which is a premium add-on to the standard entertainment package regardless of whether you subscribe to Foxtel Now or Foxtel iQ. The minimum price per month for these services is $54 and $74 respectively as a result.
Once subscribed to Foxtel iQ, you can watch UFC and MMA events on your TV. Alternatively, you can stream Foxtel content to your laptop or mobile device with the Foxtel GO app, which you get for free as a Foxtel client.
Foxtel Now, on the other hand, is a purely streaming service, and therefore the better option for those who want to stream UFC. Foxtel Now works on PCs/Macs, mobile devices, Chromecast/Airplay, PS4, Telstra TV, and the Foxtel Now Box. New subscribers get a 10-day free trial.
To watch the Main Card of any UFC or MMA event, you can access the Foxtel Main Event pay-per-view experience. You will need to order Foxtel Main Event in advance, which usually costs $54.95.
Watch UFC with Fetch TV
Fetch is an official partner of the UFC. EDGEsport, available in the Vibe Pack, enables fans to watch weigh-ins, prelims, pre and post-fight shows and UFC Fight Nights. Users can also watch on mobile devices using the Fetch app. You can also tune in for pay-per-view events on your TV on Channel 991, or on your mobile device using the Fetch app. Fights are available to purchase via your Fetch box two weeks before the fight.
The UFC Fight Night events are included in the Vibe Pack, which costs only $6/month. Although the total price of your Fetch subscription will change based on whether you get your Fetch box through a broadband provider or buy it outright. For the full UFC experience, however, you will still need to purchase the main UFC events through Main Event at $54.95 each.
Watch UFC through PlayStation 4
It is possible to purchase and watch the full fight schedule of UFC through a PlayStation 4. If you head to the LiveEvents section of the PlayStation Store, you can purchase the event and there is a discount for PlayStation Plus members. You can then watch it through the My Videos app. The experience is comparable to the UFC Fight Pass or Foxtel Main Event experiences.
Stream UFC with UFC Fight Pass
Dubbed "Netflix for fight fans", UFC Fight Pass is a subscription streaming service providing live and on-demand streams of the biggest fights and events on the UFC calendar. Compatible with TVs, PCs, Macs, and IOS and Android mobile devices and tablets, UFC Fight Pass gives fans 24/7 access to the world of UFC.
It's important to note that on the big main numbered UFC events, only the Undercard prelims are shown live through UFC Fight Pass. You can purchase the Main Card or they become available to watch 30 days after the event. You can find all the information you need on UFC Fight Pass in our detailed review.
