This weekend, UFC 239 will be taking place, live from T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. It's a pretty stacked card, and the only place you can watch it, is once again ESPN+. Those that are ESPN+ subscribers can get the PPV for $59.99, which is a pretty good price, that's $5 off the regular price. Those that aren't, are going to have to pay $79.99 but that also gets you a year of ESPN+ for about a quarter of the price.
This card has some pretty good fights on the main card, with a dual main event. Which consists of Jon Jones vs Thiago Santos in a Light Heavyweight bout. There is also Amanda Nunes vs Holly Holm in a Women Bantamweight bout. Then the third fight on the main card has Ben Askren vs Jorge Masvidal in a Welterweight bout.
Jones is the most dominant Light Heavyweight champion in UFC history, and he is also one of the best pound-for-pound fighters that MMA has ever seen. When he faces third ranked Thiago Santos, will he be able to hold onto his championship? Nunes is also a pretty dominant champion, in fact, she is a two-division champion, and is currently one of the all-time greats in the sport. Now she has to take on Holly Holm, who was the first one to knockout Ronda Rousey at UFC 193, nearly four years ago.
Askren is returning to the Octagon in UFC 239, and that comes after a pretty tough UFC debut. Though it was a victory, it was a tough one. Now he is in a grudge match with Masvidal, someone that he's been calling out for months. Will that backfire for Askren, or can he build on his undefeated streak?
It's a pretty stacked card, and you're definitely going to get your money's worth this time around. As usual, the main card is going to start exclusively on ESPN+ at 10PM EST. With the Prelims on ESPN at 8:15PM EST and the early prelims beginning on ESPN+ at 6:15PM EST. The prelims and early prelims are included with ESPN+, and only the main card is paid for with the PPV price tag of $59.99.
ESPN+ does offer this PPV for $59.99 for current subscribers, and you can order yours now. Unfortunately, if you are not a current subscriber, you will need to pay $79.99 for this PPV. That's going to get you the PPV along with a year of ESPN+ at a pretty hefty discount. That's $20 for a year of ESPN+ that would normally cost you $60. So not a bad price either.
Getting a year of ESPN+ is a big deal, especially if you are a big UFC fan. You see, ESPN+ has a ton of UFC content, this is thanks to the huge investment that ESPN+ has made into the UFC. So not only are you getting the PPVs every month, but also the fight nights and even some original shows that precede and follow the UFC events. So if you are a UFC fan, then this is a subscription you must get.
