UFC 257: How to watch Dustin Poirier vs Conor McGregor this weekend
It’s been a year since Conor McGregor’s last fight and two years since his infamous fight with Khabib Nurmagomedov. Judging by the final weigh in, you can really see how McGregor’s personality has changed since UFC 229. However, it doesn’t make him any less intimidating and the favorite heading into the fight.
This is the first Dustin Poirier vs Conor McGregor fight. In their first fight in 2014, McGregor won the fight by total knockout in one minute and forty-six seconds. Since their first fight, both fighters lost to Khabib, with Poirier earning a 10-2 record and McGregor earning a 6-2 record.
However, all of Mcgregor’s eight fights since taking on Poirier in 2014 have been main cards and pay-per-view events. He’s also won two title fights since beating Poirier. Poirier also found success after the fight. He’s won one title since the 2014 fight and has been the main event seven times since then.
The fight should be a better experience than McGregor’s fight against Donald Cerrone, where he TKOed “The Cowboy” in forty seconds. The main event starts at 10 p.m. ET. So if you’re looking to watch the fight, here is everywhere to watch.
ESPN and ESPN+ are streaming the prelims making the streaming service the best site to stream Dustin Poirier vs Conor McGregor. You’re still going to need to pay for the fight. If you’re already an ESPN+ subscriber, it will cost an additional $70 for the fight. However, for new subscribers, you can get the fight with the Disney Bundle – which includes ESPN+, Disney+, and Hulu – for $83.
The following month the price will return to $12 a month. If you haven’t gotten the Disney Bundle, you’re really missing out. For a dollar less than Netflix, you get three streaming services perfect for the whole family.
ESPN+ is your only option to watch Dustin Poirier vs Conor McGregor. If you don’t have ESPN+ and don’t want the Disney Bundle, you’ll have to get an ESPN+ subscription. The total purchase for new subscribers is $75. Don’t worry; it’s really easy to cancel if you don’t want to keep either the Disney Bundle or ESPN+ after the fight.
After Reddit banned the popular streaming subreddits, it’s been hard to find reliable streaming sites for every sport. Luckily the founders of the banned subreddits put together sites for every sport, including MMA. If you’ve ever been on the NFL site NFLbite.com, it works exactly the same. You find the fight you want to watch, and a list of free streaming links ranked by reliability populated thirty minutes before the fight.
Another site is sportsurge.net. The live streaming site doesn’t specialize in just MMA, but finding reliable streams is the same. Except instead of ranking the sites by reliability, sports surge shows how many ads you’ll have to click through before watching the steam, which is super helpful. If you are a sports fan, it’s worth bookmarking the site just for the sheer amount of sports found on the site. The site has MMA, boxing, basketball, football, hockey, and motorsports.
