You know ESPN+ is one of the best options for UFC live streaming.

All of these services work with the vast majority of modern streaming platforms, but always be sure to check and make sure that the one you want is compatible with your devices before signing up.
- FuboTV is a relative newcomer that is quickly shaping up to be the number one streaming platform for sports fans (including those who want to live stream UFC fights). It offers several plans that both include ESPN: The Starter plan, which offers 100-plus channels and rings in at $65 per month, the $70-per-month Pro plan which lets you watch on unlimited screens, and the $80-per-month Elite plan which features 150-plus channels along with some other extras.
- Hulu might have the biggest name recognition when it comes to streaming TV shows and channels, so its place on this list should come as no surprise. Its $65/month Live TV plan includes ESPN and you can add premium channels like HBO, Showtime, Starz, and more to your plan a la carte. If you want ESPN+, then another great option is The Disney Bundle which gets you basic ad-supported Hulu (note that this is different than the full Hulu Live package), Disney+, and ESPN+ for just $14 per month. You can also bundle that with Hulu Live TV for $73 per month and save $7.
- Sling TV stands as a cost-effective alternative for streamers who don’t want to pay for a bunch of channels they’re never going to watch. Sling has two smaller plans – Orange and Blue — which you can get for $35 per month each. Only the Orange package has ESPN channels for things like UFC live streams, though, but you can combine the two into the Orange + Blue plan for only $50 per month. As with Hulu, premium channels are available at extra cost.
- YouTube TV, as you probably gleaned from the name, is YouTube’s foray into the world of premium streaming services. It costs $65 per month — the same as Hulu or Fubo — and includes ESPN, letting you live stream UFC content (aside from pay-per-views, which still require ESPN+).
