How to watch ESPN Plus live streams for soccer, UFC and other sports

If you’re looking to sign-up to an ESPN+ live stream for soccer, UFC or other major live sports events, then you’ve come to the right place. ESPN+ offers some of the best boxing, UFC and other sports coverage on the planet. You can sign up to EPSN+ at the cheapest price below but there are one or two different ESPN+ bundles and tariffs to be aware of first. Here’s a quick overview.

ESPN+ ($9.99)

A standard ESPN+ subscription (opens in new tab) costs $9.99 per month. There is no contract or obligation. You can cancel at any time. This brings you all the usual sports content on the platform apart from UFC pay-per-views. If you’re not afraid of commitment, you can sign up for a whole year for the price of 10 months with the $99.99 ESPN+ annual plan (opens in new tab). You can watch UFC on the standard plan but not the big PPV events.

ESPN+ UFC PPV ($74.99)

The UFC PPV on ESPN+ (opens in new tab) is a one-off payment for the event. You’ll need to pay each time you want to watch another live evening of fight sports action.
