The UFC is showcasing a World Championship Doubleheader this weekend at their UFC 277 PPV event. So, we get two title fights, a heavyweight brawl, a flyweight scrap and a light heavyweight tilt, providing us with as much bang for our buck as the UFC can muster.

A highly-anticipated rematch is going down this weekend at UFC 277 in the main event, as Juliana Peña and Amanda Nunes clash once again for the bantamweight championship. In December of last year during UFC 269, Peña defeated Nunes by submission in what many consider the greatest UFC upset of all time. Now, fans are anxious to see whether Peña can defend her new bantamweight title against its former owner.

The co-main is sure to be a barnburner. We will be treated to the ‘Assassin Baby’ Brandon Moreno battling it out for the now UFC Interim Flyweight Champion, against the dangerous entity, Kai ‘Don’t Blink’ Kara-France.

ALL THE GOODS ON UFC 277 LIVE STREAM INFO:

UFC 277 is exclusive to ESPN+, so if you’re looking to stream this event, non-ESPN+ subscribers will need to sign up for ESPN+ (monthly or annual) and then purchase UFC 277, as PPVs are only available to ESPN+ subscribers.

Besides the ability to buy the Peña vs. Nunes 2 PPV live stream, an ESPN+ subscription delivers a ton of UFC content including free UFC Fight Night live streams, highlights, and post-fight analysis. The streaming service also has plenty of other free live streams for sports including soccer, baseball, and hockey. ESPN+ offers the ability to stream live, rewind, or replay on up to 3 devices at once and is available to watch on a variety of connected devices, including Roku, Fire TV, Xbox, Apple, Google Chromecast, PlayStation, and more.

If you’re already an ESPN+ subscriber, you can purchase UFC 277 for $74.99. ESPN also offers two bundle packages:

UFC 277 & The Disney Bundle: This package provides you with a $13.99/month subscription to ESPN+, Disney+, and Hulu (ad-supported) and UFC 277 ($74.99) for $88.98 plus tax. You can also purchase an ad-free Hulu version of the bundle for $19.99/month, if you prefer.

UFC 277 & ESPN+ Bundle: ESPN is offering another bundle that includes one UFC PPV and a one-year ESPN+ subscription for $99.98. You can also purchase ESPN+ for $6.99/month (rather than an annual chunk of cash), and then buy UFC 276 for $74.99.

Hulu & ESPN+: You can also stream UFC pay-per-view events live on Hulu. Subscribers with the ESPN+ add-on, as well as those who signed up for The Disney Bundle, can watch live events and ESPN+ programming on the Hulu app or website. You’ll need an active subscription to both Hulu and ESPN+ (individual plans start at $6.99/each or you can purchase the Disney Bundle) and then you’d buy the event through ESPN+. Once purchased, you can stream UFC 277 directly through the Hulu app, Hulu.com, or any supported devices. Again, per Hulu, only subscribers who have signed up for the standalone ESPN+ add-on, or who subscribe to The Disney Bundle, will be able to access ESPN+ content in the Hulu app. Visit Hulu’s UFC page for additional information.

How to Catch UFC 277 Online Free: Although there is no way to (legally) watch UFC 277 for free online, there IS indeed a way to access the UFC 277 prelims live stream for FREE. Unlike the main card, the prelims will be broadcast on both ABC and ESPN. If you get a free trial to a live TV streaming service like DirecTV Stream or fuboTV, you’ll get a free live stream of ABC or ESPN, and be able to watch UFC 277 for free online during the prelims.
