The second of three UFC events in just as many days features another title fight, this time between strawweights Joanna Jedrzejczyk and Claudia Gadelha. Will Brooks vs. Ross Pearson, Doo Ho Choi vs. Thiago Tavares, Fernando Bruno vs. Gray Maynard, and John Moraga vs. Matheus Nicolau are a handful of the other fights on tonight’s card that are worth checking out.
How to Watch the Main Card with Fight Pass
Tonight’s main card airs live on Fox Sports 1, which means if you live in a country where the UFC has a television deal in place, it will be blacked out from watching in your UFC Fight Pass account.
However, with a DNS service like Unlocator, you can “spoof” your location to make it look like you live in a place where there is no UFC television deal. This opens up the fights to live stream through your existing Fight Pass account.
You may already use a DNS service to access American Netflix or Hulu when you reside outside the USA, for example. If you don’t currently subscribe to a DNS service, I encourage you to check out Unlocator.
I’ve been an Unlocator member for going on two years now and use it exclusively for watching blacked out fights on my Fight Pass account. Unlocator can be configured on a wide range of streaming devices, tablets, phones, computers, and even routers. You can be up and running and watching blacked out fights literally within minutes, and there is a seven-day free trial available if you’re new to the service.
Here’s How to Live Stream the Fights
The Ultimate Fighter 23 Finale will air live on Friday, July 8, 2016 starting at 6:30 PM ET on UFC Fight Pass, followed by the televised prelims at 8 PM ET on Fox Sports 1, concluding with the main card at 10 PM ET, also on Fox Sports 1.
