Watch Assuncao vs. Moraes During UFC Fight Night This Weekend On ESPN+


ESPN's UFC Fight Night is back this weekend. On February 2, live from Fortaleza, Brazil. In the main card, there will be a bantamweight rematch between Raphael Assuncao and Marlon Moraes. The winner would be in a great position to challenge UFC's bantamweight champion, TJ Dillashaw in the future. Moraes comes into Fortaleza on a pretty hot winning streak. Having won 16 of his last 17 fights. His only loss was to Assuncao in 2017, so this is a big rematch between the two.

Aside from Assuncao and Moraes in the main event, there is another main event happening too. Where UFC Featherweight Champion Jose Aldo is taking on Renato Moicano. There will also be a Welterweight match between Demian Maia and Lyman Good. Needless to say, UFC Fight Night is going to be one you won't want to miss.

UFC Fight Night starts at 5PM EST with the prelims. The main card starts at 8PM EST. All of these fights will be available with English and Spanish commentary. ESPN+ is also the only place that you are going to be able to watch these matches, as ESPN does have exclusivity for UFC Fight Night.


Also happening on Saturday, is Top Rank Boxing. With the WBO World Lightweight Heavyweight Eleider Alvarez taking on Sergey Kovalev in the main event. So if you're a big boxing fan, ESPN+ is going to be your go-to place this weekend.

If you're more excited for the Super Bowl this weekend, ESPN+ also has you covered with a ton of content leading up to the event, including plenty of 30 for 30 documentaries that you'll want to catch up on. Now, the Super Bowl is being broadcast on CBS, so unfortunately you won't be able to watch it through the ESPN+ app, but it will get you ready for the big game on Sunday.

ESPN+ also has a slew of NHL and college basketball games playing this weekend and through next week. So there is something for everyone here. The NHL Game of the Day occurs everyday, but ESPN+ has not yet announced which games will be the "game of the day". But they are bound to be some pretty exciting games, given that the All-Star break is over. And teams are now starting to fight for playoff spots.


ESPN+ is a pretty inexpensive streaming network, coming in at about $5 per month. You can also sign up for a free trial and watch all of the UFC Fight Night and boxing matches this weekend. ESPN is always adding more content to ESPN+, so if you're a big sports fan, then this streaming service is definitely worth checking out. And this content is all content that is not found on the regular ESPN channels that you get through your cable and/or satellite provider, making it worth the $5 per month. And considering you're likely paying more for Netflix, ESPN+ won't break the bank, especially with all of the new content being added consistently.
