How To Watch UFC for Free in 2022

There are, unfortunately, no streaming services offering UFC pay-per-view fights for free. However, some of UFC’s Fight Night, as well as many other events, may be watched on ESPN for free through your television provider. But if you’re really itching to watch some good fights, we suggest you pony up for the subscription. 

That said, if you aren’t willing to drop $100 on yet another streaming service, there is a way to watch UFC streams without paying for them. No, we’re not talking about some sketchy livestream you found on Reddit. The UFC has an online search tool that lets you search for local bars and restaurants that will be broadcasting UFC fights. You can simply find a location near you and enjoy all the action for the price of a pitcher of beer and some chicken wings, which is the cheapest option you’ll find.

To find a bar near you broadcasting an upcoming UFC PPV fight, head to the UFC’s website and search for a bar.
