Israel Adesanya and Marvin Vettori 2 headline a stacked UFC 263 card in a battle for the vacant middleweight title at the Gila River Arena in Glendale, Arizona on Saturday.
Here’s everything you need to know to buy the UFC 263 PPV:
How to Buy UFC 263 If You Don’t Have ESPN+
If you don’t have ESPN+, you can get a special bundle deal that includes a one-year subscription to ESPN+ ($59.99 value) and the UFC 263 PPV ($69.99 value) for $89.98, which works out to over 30 percent savings.
Or, if you want to purchase them separately, you can first subscribe to a month of ESPN+ right here ($5.99 for ESPN+, or $13.99 for a bundle of ESPN+, Hulu and Disney+), then follow the below directions for existing ESPN+ subscribers.
However, with the amount of UFC (and other sports) content on ESPN+, most MMA fans are probably going to keep ESPN+ long-term, meaning the value of the bundle is the better way to go if you don’t already have ESPN+.
How to Order UFC 263 If You Already Have ESPN+
Current ESPN+ subscribers can order the UFC 263 PPV by itself for just $69.99. Or, if you only have a monthly subscription (and don’t have the Disney+ bundle), you can still get the special bundle that includes a year of ESPN+ and the UFC 262 PPV. The only difference is that instead of starting a new ESPN+ subscription, you’ll just extend your current subscription by a year and get the UFC 262 PPV for a total of $89.98.
Where to Watch UFC 263
Once you’re signed up for ESPN+ and you’ve purchased the PPV, you’ll be able to watch UFC 263 on your computer via ESPN.com, or you can watch on the ESPN app on any compatible connected-to-TV streaming device, such as:
- Roku or Roku TV
- Amazon Fire Stick or Fire TV
- Apple TV
- PlayStation 4 or 5
- Xbox One or Series X/S
- iPhone or iPad
- Android phone or tablet
- Samsung Smart TV
- Oculus Go
For all of those options, you’ll need to sign in with your ESPN+ account to watch early prelims (ESPN+), prelims (ESPN+) and the main card (ESPN+ PPV).
