Combat sports have seen unprecedented growth in both popularity and TV viewership across the world since the inception of the Ultimate Fighting Championship, mostly known as the UFC. While this year has resulted in a temporary halt for MMA and other sports, the arena has been opened once again for highest-level fighters.
There are several ways you can watch UFC fights. You can either purchase a pay-per-view UFC event from your respective cable provider or watch prelims and undercard fights on broadcasting TV channels without paying for an extra fee.
For cord-cutters, the situation is a bit different, but in a good way. UFC has partnered with several television networks and streaming services to provide high-definition coverage of UFC fights across the world. Fans can also purchase PPV events online and tune in to the exclusive live streams. PPV replays can also be accessed later on-demand.

How to Watch UFC on Firestick for Free
A quick search on the web will provide you with many free alternatives to premium services, including third-party streaming apps and Kodi add-ons, such as TVZion, HD Movie Box, The Crew, and many more. You can get these apps working on the Firestick via the sideloading process.
However, most third-party streaming apps carry unlicensed content, which is often sourced from illegal file hosting and torrent websites. Streaming UFC PPVs from unverified sources will result in a breach of their copyright guidelines, and it is deemed a criminal activity in many countries with strict cyber laws.
Although millions of people do it without facing the consequences, your privacy is still at risk. This is why many use a VPN service to safeguard their personal information and anonymity from leaking to the open web, which can be used by cybercriminals with ill intent.
A VPN service not only lets you change your location in the virtual world but also masks your real IP address so that you can browse the web and playback unauthorized streams without running into legal issues.
While it’s illegal to host copyrighted content without the consent of the official distributors, there are no proper laws that restrict the end-user from watching the unauthorized streams. Still, we recommend you to proceed at your own discretion.
In this guide, we have walked you through a couple of viable options to watch UFC on Firestick. Every paid service that we have mentioned are available in the Amazon Appstore.
You can get them on other devices from the Fire TV family, including the 2017 Fire TV Pendant, Fire TV Cube (Gen 1 & 2), and Fire TV Edition Smart TVs/soundbars.
