How to Live Stream The Ultimate Fighter Nations Finale: Bisping vs. Kennedy

The Ultimate Fighter Nations: Canada vs. Australia Finale is set to air tonight live, and if you want to stream it, I’ve got you covered. Here’s what you need to know:

The card features a variety of fighters who participated on the show, including the two who will fight to become “The Ultimate Fighter” Elias Theodoru and Sheldon Westcott. But that isn’t the main event. In fact, that isn’t even the co-main. The two main fights on the card are Michael Bisping vs. Tim Kennedy and the coaches from this season of TUF Nations, Patrick Cote and Kyle Noke. Also on the card are Akira Corassani and Dustin Poirier, KJ Noons and Sam Stout, Sarah Kaufman and Leslie Smith, Ryan Jimmo will meet Sean O’Connell, and Dustin Kimura will take on George Roop.

The action starts at 3:15PM with the UFC Fight Pass preliminary fights, followed by the prelim fights at 5PM EST and the main card at 7PM EST. The prelims and main card can be purchased via the UFC.tv app and then viewed a variety of ways:

How to Live Stream UFC 171: Hendricks vs. Lawler

A lot of people complain that recent UFC Pay-Per-Views don’t have enough good fights to justify the cost. Some of the cards feel like they should be a UFC on Fox Sports 1 event rather than a $50 PPV. But UFC 171 is different. This card is stacked and worth paying the $50 to see Georges St. Pierre’s successor get the belt.

The main event for UFC 171 features Johny Hendricks against Robbie for the welterweight title, with Carlos Condit vs. Tyron Woodley in the co-main slot. Rounding out the main card is Diego Sanchez against Myles Jury, Jake Shields vs. Hector Lombard, and Ovince St. Preux vs. Nikita Krylov.

The prelims also feature some interesting fights including Kelvin Gastelum vs. Rick Story (the only man aside from GSP to beat Johny), Raquel Pennington vs. Jessica Andrade, Dennis Bermudez vs. Jimy Hettes, and Sean Spencer vs. Alex Garcia. Look for Bermudez to put on a fight of the night-worthy performance.

The action kicks off at 6PM EST on UFC Fight Pass with the early prelims, followed by the preliminary fights at 8PM, and then the main card Pay-Per-View at 10PM EST.

How to Live Stream UFC Fight Night 37: Gustafsson vs. Manuwa

Thankfully this week’s UFC Fight Pass free event doesn’t start as early, because I can’t handle too many of those 6AM start times. Today, UFC Fight Night 37: Gustafsson vs. Manuwa kicks off at the more reasonable time of 1PM EST, just in time for lunch.

This card is pretty stacked in terms of a UFC Fight Pass event, which arguably isn’t saying much. But, if you look down the card you should recognize at least one name in each of the fights.

The headlining bout features Alexander Gustafsson and Jimi Manuwa, with Michael Johnson taking on Melvin Guillard in the co-main slot, along with Brad Pickett vs. Neil Seery and Gunnar Nelson vs. Omari Akhmedov rounding out the main card. The preliminary card features fights including Cyrille Diabate against Ilir Latifi, Luke Barnatt vs. Mats Nilsson, Brad Scott vs. Claudio Henrique da Silva, Cesar Bonilla vs. Danny Mitchell, and Phil Harris vs. Louis Gaudinot.

The preliminary fights for UFC Fight Night 37: Gustafsson vs. Manuwa kick off at 12:55PM EST with the main card scheduled for 3PM EST.

If you want to watch this event live, you’ll need a subscription to UFC Fight Pass. It runs $9.99 per month and gets you access to live cards such as this one as well as a huge back catalog of other UFC, Strikeforce, WEC, and Affliction fights.

To watch the fights, simply log into the UFC.tv app on the device (Roku, iPhone, iPad, iPod, Android phone or tablet, etc.) of your choice and you can find the event to stream live if you’re a UFC Fight Pass subscriber.

 

How to Live Stream UFC Fight Night Macao: Kim vs. Hathaway

I’m getting really annoyed with how the UFC is choosing to name its events. This particular event is actually The Ultimate Fighter: China Finale, but it’s billed as UFC Fight Night: Macao. However, it’s not following the (albeit unofficial) numbering system of UFC Fight Night cards. The last UFC Fight Night event was UFC Fight Night 36: Machida vs. Mousasi and UFC Fight Night 37 is Gustafsson vs. Manuwa. So what does that make this card, UFC Fight Night 36.5: Kim vs. Hathaway?

The answer is: I’m spending way too much time thinking about this card considering the main event features Dong Hyun Kim and John Hathaway. Nothing against the guys, but it’s not a fight with a lot on the line in terms of title contention. That being said, I am looking forward to Matt Mitrione vs. Shawn Jordan which should end in a knockout, and Nam Phan vs. Vaughan Lee should be entertaining. Hatsu Hioki and Ivan Menjivar should be…well, I recognize their names, so there’s that. The rest of the card is populated with fighters who no one knows because they’re from The Ultimate Fighter: China show, but at least this is a way to get introduced to them.

If you plan on watching this event live, keep in mind you NEED a UFC Fight Pass subscription to watch it. The free trial is now over, so you’ll need to pony up the $9.99 per month to gain access to the fight, but fortunately there’s a lot of other good content on UFC Fight Pass that comes along with this fight card.

The start time for UFC Fight Night 36.5: Kim vs. Hathaway is at 6:15AM EST with the preliminary fights and the the main card kicks off at 8AM EST. Yes, this is crazy early, but like I said after the last early card, if you’re an adult, getting up early to watch fights on a Saturday morning will give you the same sort of feeling you got when you were a kid who woke up early on Saturday mornings for cartoons.
