Tonight we have the most epic card in UFC history. This event is stacked from beginning to end. Literally every fight is worth watching, and here they are: Miesha Tate vs. Amanda Nunes, Brock Lesnar vs. Mark Hunt, Daniel Cormier vs. Anderson Silva, Jose Aldo vs. Frankie Edgar, Travis Browne vs. Cain Velasquez, T.J. Dillashaw vs. Raphael Assuncao, Julianna Pena vs. Cat Zingano, Kelvin Gastelum vs. Johny Hendricks, Sage Northcutt vs. Enrique Marin, Joe Lauzon vs. Diego Sanchez, Thiago Santos vs. Gegard Mousasi, and Takanori Gomi vs. Jim Miller.
Does it get any better than that? I suppose Daniel Cormier vs. Jon Jones 2 would have been better, but we all know what happened with that situation.
How to Watch the Televised Prelims with Fight Pass
With a card this stacked, you want to make sure you can catch all of these fights. If you’re a cable cutter, to do this, you’ll need two things: a UFC Fight Pass account and a DNS service subscription.
With your Fight Pass account, you can purchase the Pay-Per-View and watch the Fight Pass prelim fights. The televised prelims will likely be blacked out from watching on your Fight Pass account, but did you know there is a way around this?
With a DNS service like Unlocator, you can make it appear as if you live in a part of the world where the UFC has yet to secure a television deal. In these countries, the UFC allows Fight Pass subscribers to watch televised events through Fight Pass since there is no reason to black them out. There are no television deals in place that would prevent the UFC from streaming the fights through Fight Pass.
Unlocator might sound like it’s complicated to configure, but anyone of any technical proficiency can configure Unlocator within minutes. It works on a variety of products like streaming devices, cell phones, tablets, computers, and it can be configured at the router level as well.
Unlocator is available with a seven-day free trial, so if it sounds too good to be true, give it a try without spending a cent. I’ve subscribed to Unlocator for nearly two years and heartily recommend it to any fight fan who’s a cable cutter.
