The UFC 251 PPV is taking place this Saturday, July 11 from the UFC Fight Island in Abu Dhabi. Once again, there’s no crowd, so the PPV will sound a bit odd, compared to how UFC fights normally sound. And these are all international fighters this time around, since they are unable to travel to the US to fight.

UFC 251 is happening this Saturday, so how can you watch online without cable? Well, luckily we have you covered.

How can I watch UFC 251 without cable?

If you don’t have cable or subscribe to streaming TV, you can still watch UFC 251 in its entirety.


The early prelims and prelims are available on ESPN+. And you’ll be able to purchase the PPV through ESPN+ as well.

You can purchase the PPV for $64.99 through ESPN+. If you are not an ESPN+ subscriber, it’ll cost you $84.98. The $20 extra goes towards a year of ESPN+, which is actually much cheaper than what ESPN+ is normally for an entire year. So it’s a really good deal.

The PPV only includes the main card, which is five fights. The prelims and early prelims are all free, on ESPN+ and on ESPN.
