At present, there is no way to watch the battle live on cable TV or via another streaming service. This fight is also not available on ufc.tv because of geographical restrictions.
Do you have problems bypassing geographical restrictions? Use a VPN
Whether you come from your home country or live in a place where the restrictions are ridiculous, the solution to work around the restrictions is always to use a VPN, which gives the impression that you come from a different place. Our VPN choices are:
ExpressVPN: This choice of VPN is incredibly fast, easy to use and offers very user-friendly clients for each platform. Here's how to watch the fight:
Download VPN Express.
Log in to a server located in the United States if you want to use ESPN + or to a server on which UFC TV is available if you plan to watch it that way.
Head toward ESPN + and buy the fight. You will need to provide a valid postal code.
StrongVPN: This VPN is not as user-friendly, but very fast and useful for getting around restrictions because it is not as well known.
In general, the way around the restrictions is to switch the VPN server to another country that has access to the website you are trying to view. If it's still stuck, try another server. Both choices offer free trials, so you do not have to pay for something that does not work for you.
