UFC 257 is nearly here. The pay-per-view MMA matchup is scheduled for Saturday, January 23 at 10 p.m. ET, with the prelims starting at 8 p.m. ET and the early prelims beginning at 6:15 p.m. ET. The main event promises to be an exciting one, with Dustin Poirier squaring off against UFC Featherweight and Lightweight champion Conor McGregor. The PPV event is available on ESPN+, but new subscribers can score a great deal on a bundle that includes access to the PPV and a year’s subscription to ESPN+. Here are the details.
UFC 257: How to Watch
The only way to watch UFC 257 is on ESPN+, the exclusive home for all UFC pay-per-views. That means you need an ESPN+ subscription, and you’ll need to pay the standard $69.99 price to view the PPV event. However, if you’re not an ESPN+ member, you can get a pretty great deal.

If you’re new to ESPN+, you can get a fantastic deal that saves you $40. You can get UFC 257 and one year of ESPN+ for $89.98. Note that your ESPN+ subscription renews automatically at $59.99 per year unless you turn off auto-renew.
It really is a great deal. If you were to buy the two items separately, it would cost $129.98. That means you save $40 by taking advantage of this special promotion. Not bad. Not bad at all.

The main event of UFC 257 will actually be the second time Poirier and McGregor have faced off in the octagon. The first time they fought was at UFC 178 in 2014. McGregor won that bout with a TKO in the first round.

Alternately, you can subscribe to the Disney+ bundle for $12.99 per month and buy the UFC pay-per-view separately. The Disney+ bundle comes with three streaming service subscriptions: Disney+, ESPN+, and the ad-supported version of Hulu. It’s a great deal in its own right, but if you go this route you will have to purchase UFC 257 separately.
Where to Watch ESPN+
ESPN+ is available pretty much anywhere. You can find the app on many smart TVs, as well as iOS and android devices, Roku, Google Chromecast, Amazon Fire TV, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and S, as well Oculus. There’s a good chance you have at least one of those things lying around somewhere.
