The main event of UFC 269 is about to happen, with lightweight champion Charles Oliveira taking on title challenger Dustin Poirier around midnight. If you’re furiously browsing the web to see if there’s a free UFC 269 live stream, let us save you the trouble: there isn’t. This is a pay-per-view event, so you’ll need to shell out money for ESPN + with the PPV ticket in order to watch UFC 269 online. The good news is, you can save money if you’re a new subscriber. Here is what you need to know.

UFC 267 took place in October, and it was the first numbered event in a decade that wasn’t a pay-per-view, but MMA fans shouldn’t expect another free show ( free for ESPN + subscribers, anyway) anytime soon. The UFC 269: Oliveira vs Poirier Main Card is a PPV and is streamed exclusively through ESPN’s premium streaming platform. This means the only way to watch the UFC 269 live stream tonight is to sign up for ESPN +.

If you are new to the service, you can save money. Normally, a one-year ESPN + subscription costs $ 70, and each UFC PPV show costs the same, or $ 140 in total. If you don’t have ESPN +, then you can purchase an annual subscription with the UFC 269 PPV for $ 90 instead, which allows you to keep $ 50 in your pocket. However, this is only a one-time deal, so after using this deal you will need to pay the regular price of $ 70 for future UFC pay-per-view events.

But you’ll have to act quickly, as the main card for UFC 269 – which is the pay-per-view part of the event – is now underway, and Oliveira and Poirier will be entering the Octagon soon. Then you can install ESPN + and watch the UFC 269 live stream on your smart TV, streaming stick, mobile device, Xbox or PlayStation game console, or right in your computer’s web browser. We expect lightweight champion Charles Oliveira and title challenger Dustin Poirier to enter the Octagon at or shortly after midnight ET. This will be preceded by the co-main event, a women’s bantamweight title fight between defending champion Amanda Nunes and challenger Julianna Pena.
