How to Live Stream UFC on Fox 19: Teixeira vs. Evans

Tonight’s card was supposed to feature Khabib Nurmagomedov vs. Tony Ferguson and Lyoto Machida vs. Dan Henderson, but Tony got hurt and Lyoto got popped for taking a banned substance, so both of those fights have been taken off the card. Fortunately what remains is still decent.

The new main event for tonight’s fights is Rashad Evans vs. Glover Teixeira, with Rose Namajunas vs. Tecia Torres in the co-main slot. Darrell Horcher vs. Khabib Nurmagomedov and Hacran Dias vs. Cub Swanson round out the main card.

Other fights to keep an eye on include Michael Chiesa vs. Beneil Dariush, Bethe Correia vs. Raquel Pennington, Court McGee vs. Santiago Ponzinibbio, and John Dodson vs. Manny Gamburyan.

How to Watch the Televised Prelims and Main Card with Fight Pass

I go through this for every event, so I’ll try to keep it as brief as possible.

The UFC has television deals around the world that requires it to black out fights from streaming live on Fight Pass. The United States and Canada are two such countries where these regional restrictions exist. Fortunately, you can make it look like you live in a country where there are no television deals, allowing you to live stream the fights with your existing Fight Pass account.

You can spoof your location by using a DNS service. DNS services are used by many people to access content that isn’t available in their country. People outside of America do this to access Hulu, Netflix, Sling TV, etc. and you can also use a DNS service to watch live fights in Fight Pass that are otherwise blacked out.

I highly recommend the Unlocator DNS service, as I’ve used them for going on two years now and I’ve never had an issue. It’s quick and easy to configure the service on a variety of devices (routers, computers, streaming devices, cell phones, tablets, etc.) and you can be up and running in minutes. Unlocator is available with a seven-day free trial, or you can subscribe with a one-month, six-month, or twelve-month plan.

Here’s How to Live Stream the Fights

Tonight’s fights begin with four Fight Pass preliminary fights at 4 PM ET, followed by four televised prelim fights at 6 PM ET, and four main card fights at 8 PM ET.

Want to watch tonight’s fights live? Use one of these devices to do it:

Android TV
If you have an Android TV device like the Nexus Player, Razer Forge TV, or Nvidia Shield Android TV, there is now a UFC.tv and Fight Pass app available. Simply find it in the app store and install. Many TVs also feature the Android TV operating system and these can also be used to install the UFC.tv and Fight Pass app.

Amazon Fire TV
There is now an official UFC.tv and Fight Pass app available for all of the Amazon Fire TV devices. Install via the device’s app store.

Chromecast
If you have a Google Chromecast, you can stream the event to your Chromecast through your Apple iPhone or iPad or with your Android device through the UFC.tv and Fight Pass app, or by visiting the UFC.tv website on your computer.

If you have a Roku, you can download the UFC.tv and Fight Pass app to watch the fights on your television.

Apple TV
Download the official UFC.tv and Fight Pass app for the Apple TV to watch UFC and Fight Pass content on your television without the need to use AirPlay from your web browser or iOS device.

If you have an Xbox Live Gold account, you can download the UFC.tv and Fight Pass app and watch live events directly from your Xbox 360 your Xbox One console.

Playstation
You can watch live UFC events on your Playstation 3 and Playstation 4 through the Sony Entertainment Network. You will need to install the Live Events Viewer on your PS3 or PS4 to watch the fights live.

Smart TVs
If you have an LG or Samsung smart TV, search for “UFC” in the television’s app store to download the UFC.tv and Fight Pass app to stream the fights live. Sony TVs which feature the Android TV OS also have the UFC.tv app for Fight Pass access and live streaming events.

Smart Phones and Tablets
This is probably the least ideal way to watch a UFC event, but if you’re stuck and need to watch the fights on your phone or tablet, simply download the UFC.tv and Fight Pass app from Apple’s App Store for your iOS device, via Google Play for your Android device, or if you’re a one of those poor souls using a Blackberry, you can also find a UFC.tv and Fight Pass app in Blackberry’s App World.

Over-the-Air Antenna
Have an antenna in your house? Connect it to your TV and tune it to your local Fox affiliate and you should be able to watch the televised preliminary fights and the main card for free! Best of all, high definition OTA broadcasts are often much less compressed than what you’d be watching on a cable or satellite package. This means the picture will typically look better, and it’s free!

How to Live Stream UFC Fight Night 86: Rothwell vs. Dos Santos

After a long hiatus from fights, we’re back early tomorrow morning with a live fight card from Zagreb, Croatia. Because it’s taking place overseas, this event will begin during the day if you’re located in Canada or the United States like I am.

This card is loaded with heavyweight fights, with Ben Rothwell vs. Junior Dos Santos and Gabriel Gonzaga vs. Derrick Lewis in the main and co-main slots. Curtis Blaydes vs. Francis Ngannou and Timothy Johnson vs. Marcin Tybura are two other heavyweight bouts also featured on the main card along with two additional fights. To be honest, those are the only fights that interest me on this particular card, so I’ll be tuning in only for the main event.

How to Watch the Televised Prelims and Main Card with Fight Pass

Tomorrow’s event is airing on Fox Sports 1, which means if you’re in the United States, Canada, or another country where the UFC has a television deal, the ability to live stream the fights will be blacked out from your UFC Fight Pass account.

As I always mention, Unlocator will allow you to bypass this regional blackout restriction. Unlocator will make it look like you live in a part of the world where there are no television deals. This allows you to live stream the televised event through your UFC Fight Pass account.

Unlocator is a DNS service which can be used for many streaming services in addition to UFC Fight Pass. It will allow you to access the Netflix libraries of countries located around the world. You can access Hulu, Sling TV, and other region-specific streaming services when you aren’t located in the country of origin.

Unlocator can be configured easily in minutes, whether you want to use the service on your phone, tablet, streaming device, computer, or configure Unlocator at the router level. Regardless of your technical proficiency, Unlocator can get you up and running in no time at all.

Unlocator has a seven-day free trial for those new to the service, along with subscription plans by the month, for six months, or for twelve months. I’ve been an Unlocator subscriber for over a year and will continue to use the service as long as it functions with UFC Fight Pass.

Here’s How to Live Stream the Fights

Tomorrow’s UFC Fight Night 86 event kicks off bright and early on Sunday, April 10, 2016 at 10:30 AM ET with three preliminary fights on UFC Fight Pass, followed by the televised prelims at 12 PM ET with four fights, and the main card begins at 2 PM ET with six fights. It’s an early and long day of fights!

How to Live Stream UFC Fight Night 85: Hunt vs. Mir

It’s nice to have a couple of weeks off between UFC events. It makes you excited to watch one again, and tonight’s event is a free card that’s worth getting (a little) excited about.

At the top of the card we have a bout between two aging heavyweights Mark Hunt and Frank Mir. In the co-main slot, we have Hector Lombard fighting Neil Magny. Also on the main card is Johnny Case vs. Jake Matthews, Steve Bosse vs. James Te Huna, and Seo Hee Ham vs. Bec Rawlings. On the televised prelmims, there is Alan Jouban vs. Brendan O’Reilly and Rin Nakai vs. Leslie Smith. On the Fight Pass prelims, there’s Chad Laprise vs. Ross Pearson. Keep in mind these are just the fights that interest me and there are actually more fights on the card.

How to Watch the Televised Prelims and Main Card with Fight Pass

Because this is a televised event, most people around the world will be blacked out from live streaming the televised prelims and the main card from their UFC.tv and Fight Pass accounts. Fortunately there’s an easy way around this.

I use Unlocator to make it appear as if I’m in a part of the world where the UFC has no television deals, which unlocks the ability to live stream both the televised prelims and the main card in my Fight Pass account. This means that I can stream live all of tonight’s fights without the need for a cable or satellite subscription.

The Unlocator DNS service does cost a little bit of money, but it is definitely worth it if you’re a cable cutter and UFC fan with a Fight Pass subscription. I’ve been an Unlocator member for a long time and am now on my second year-long subscription. If you don’t want to commit to a full year, there is a one-month and six-month plan available, along with a seven-day free trial for all people new to Unlocator.

Unlocator is a great DNS service and easy to configure to use with any device you own, including routers, computers, streaming devices, phones, tablets, and even video game consoles. You can be up and running within minutes. Unlocator also works with other services in addition to Fight Pass, including Netflix, Hulu, Sling TV, and many more of the most popular streaming services from around the world.

It adds a new level of excitement to watching fights, and with my special link, it doesn’t need to cost you anything to win some money!

Here’s How to Live Stream the Fights

Tonight’s Fight Pass prelims kick off at 7 PM ET with two fights, followed by the televised prelims at 8 PM ET with four fights, and the main card begins at 10 PM ET with six fights.

How to Live Stream UFC 196: McGregor vs. Diaz

I’ll admit that I was a little bummed when I heard that Rafael dos Anjos had to pull out of his fight against Conor McGregor. Nate Diaz is a great replacement, though I really don’t see him winning the fight. I can’t help but wonder what would have happened between RDA and McGregor with the belt on the line. It could go either way. But with Diaz filling in on a week’s notice, I don’t see him winning, as much as I will be rooting for him.

In the co-main slot, we have Holly Holm’s first title defense as women’s bantamweight champion and she will be taking on Miesha Tate. Gian Villante is also on the main card, taking on “The Bricklayer” Ilir Latifi, and Amanda Nunes will fight Valentina Shevchenko. On the televised prelims, Siyar Bahadurzada will meet Brandon Thatch and Erick Silva fights Nordine Taleb. The “headliner” of the Fight Pass prelims is an exciting bout between Jim Miller and Diego Sanchez.

How to Watch the Televised Prelims and Main Card with Fight Pass

Remember that because the UFC has television deals around the world, the televised prelims will be on television and therefore blacked out on UFC Fight Pass. There is a way around this, though.

With a DNS service like Unlocator, you can make it look like you’re somewhere else in the world where the UFC doesn’t have television deals. A service like this also lets you access the content available on Netflix in different countries and sign up for services you otherwise couldn’t access if you don’t live in the country. So, you could watch Hulu even though you’re not American, for example.

With the Unlocator and Fight Pass combination, the televised prelims open up and become available to watch in your Fight Pass account. I’ve been using this configuration for over a year now and wouldn’t pay for Fight Pass without having Unlocator as well. Without Unlocator, you won’t be able to live stream anything that’s airing live on television. But with Unlocator you can. Keep in mind that you’ll still have to pay for the Pay-Per-View main card portion of this event, though. You can’t have your cake and eat it too!

Unlocator is available with a seven-day free trial or by subscription in one-month, six-month, and one-year plans. It can be configured on streaming devices like the Nexus Player and Nvidia Shield Android TV, computers, routers, cell phones, tablets, and more. Within a few minutes you can be subscribed to Unlocator and watching the blacked out televised prelims!

Make the Event More Fun with DraftKings

DraftKings is like betting without all the confusion. You don’t have to worry about parlays or betting odds with DraftKings. Just pick who you think will win the fights and then rack up points based on how well you do. The more points you score, the more money you could potentially win. Of course, this depends on how many other people enter the contest and how well they do.

If you’re new to DraftKings, you’re in luck. With my special link, you’ll be able to enter tonight’s MMA $75K Haymaker contest for free! This contest features $75,000 which will be divided up to the top 5,800 contestants. The first place finisher will take home a cool $5,000! Typically this contest is $3 to enter, but with my link, the entry fee is waived for those of you new to DraftKings.

I’ll be entering this contest and hope to take home at least something. Give it a try tonight! DraftKings makes even those boring fights a little more fun to watch since you’ll have the chance to win some real money!

Here’s How to Live Stream the Fights

Tonight’s Fight Pass prelims begin at 6:30 PM EST with three fights followed by the televised prelims kicking off at 8:00 PM EST with four fights. As usual, the main card portion of the event will begin at 10:00 PM EST and it features five fights.

How to Live Stream UFC Fight Night 84: Silva vs. Bisping

Based on the headlining fight of Anderson Silva vs. Michael Bisping, you’d think this would be a Pay-Per-View event or at least a Fox card, but what we have today is a free event streaming live on UFC Fight Pass.

The aforementioned fight with Silva and Bisping is headlining the event with Thales Leites vs. Gegard Mousasi in the co-main slot. As you would expect with a Fight Pass exclusive event, the rest of the card leaves something to be desired. There are a few recognizable names sprinkled throughout, including Brad Pickett vs. Francisco Rivera and Rustam Khabilov vs. Norman Parke, but for the most part, this is an event where you can basically skip everything and tune in for the top few fights.

Make the Event More Fun with DraftKings

One way to make these snoozers of a card a bit more intriguing is with DraftKings. You’re given a virtual bank roll which you use to pick fighters, and you score points based on how well you choose. DraftKings isn’t betting, but it is a way to win money watching fights.

Today, DraftKings is running the MMA $12K Haymaker contest where 935 people have the opportunity to win some money, with first place taking home $1,000 and the remaining is $11,000 distributed among the remaining 934 people.

This contest is typically $3 to enter, however, if you use my special DraftKings link to enter the contest, you can register for a free account and enter the MMA $12K Haymaker contest for free! This special deal is valid only with my link and only for players new to DraftKings.

Here’s How to Live Stream the Fights

This is a Fight Pass exclusive event, so as long as you have a Fight Pass account, you can watch all the fights regardless of where you live.

Today’s fights kick off at 12:45 PM ET with nine preliminary fights and the main card begins at 4 PM ET with an additional four fights.

Here are the devices you can use to access UFC Fight Pass and live stream all of today’s fights:

How to Live Stream UFC Fight Night 83: Cowboy vs. Cowboy

Tonight we have yet another UFC event on a Sunday on free TV. I’ve got to say I like these Sunday night cards. Most people are at home anyways and you don’t have to feel like you’re sacrificing a night out to stay home and watch the fights.

Tonight’s card has Donald Cerrone–returning soon after being defeated by Rafael dos Anjos–taking on the other “Cowboy” in the UFC, Alex Oliveira. Cody Garbrandt will fight Augusto Mendes, Dennis Bermudez will take on Tatsuya Kawajiri in which is sure to be the second-best fight of the night, Chris Camozzi will fight Joe “Diesel” Riggs, and the lone women’s fight on the card has Ashlee Evans-Smith fighting Marion Reneau.

How to Watch the Televised Prelims and Main Card with Fight Pass

Both the televised prelims and the main card are airing on Fox Sports 1, which means for us cable cutters, the event is likely blacked out from our Fight Pass accounts. This is because the UFC has television deals around the world which prevents the company from live streaming its own fights to Fight Pass subscribers UNLESS they live in a country where there is no television deal in place.

That’s where a service like Unlocator can help.

Unlocator is a DNS service that makes it looks like you’re somewhere else so you can access content that’s otherwise inaccessible. These services have been around for years and are widely used by people outside of the United States to access services like American Netflix, Hulu, and Sling TV.

Unlocator works for Fight Pass subscribers by letting us live stream televised events in our Fight Pass accounts. This is achieved by making it look like we’re living a country where there is no television deal in place. So, while you would typically be greeted with a “blacked out” message in your Fight Pass account if you tried to live stream tonight’s event, you will instead be allowed to live stream everything.

Unlocator is available with a seven-day free trial so you can test out the service for yourself before committing to a subscription, but I think you’ll like it. I just finished my year-long subscription and renewed for another year, but you can choose a month-to-month subscription or a six-month sub if that’s what you prefer.

I love Unlocator and it’s indispensable if you’re a Fight Pass subscriber and a cable cutter as well.

Make the Event More Fun with DraftKings

Have you ever wanted to bet on fights but were discouraged from doing so because you didn’t know how to do it or were confused by things like parlays and odds? If so, DraftKings is perfect for you.

DraftKings isn’t betting exactly, but more like a contest. You start with a bank roll and choose the fighters who you think will win. You rack up points based on how well you do, and when the fights are done, the points are tallied and you can win money based on how well you do.

Tonight DraftKings is running a MMA $25K Haymaker contest where nearly 10,000 people can enter and the top 1,920 people will win at least $6 with the winner taking home $2,000.

With my special link, you can enter tonight’s MMA $25K Haymaker contest for free and have the $3 entry fee waived. You must be new to DraftKings in order to take advantage of the free entry.

Here’s How to Live Stream the Fights

Tonight’s prelims begin at 5:15 PM EST on UFC Fight Pass, followed by the televised prelims at 7 PM EST, and then the main card begins at 9 PM EST.

Here’s how you can watch the fights without a cable or satellite subscription:

How to Live Stream Bellator 149: Shamrock vs. Gracie

This is the first post I’ve ever made about a Bellator event, but I figure those who are into the UFC would also be interested in this particular Bellator card. After all, this event does feature a number of former UFC fighters.

The top of the card features two crazy fights which likely won’t end up being that entertaining or technical, but are worth watching just for the schadenfreude angle, like watching a car crash. These fights are Ken Shamrock vs. Royce Gracie and Kimbo Slice vs. Dada 5000. Shamrock and Gracie are both way past their primes and riding on their former legacies, and both Kimbo Slice and Dada 5000 are co-headlining based solely on their reputations for their days of backyard street fighting.

Also on the card, former UFC fighter Melvin Guillard will be taking on Derek Campos, and former Bellator light heavyweight champ Emanuel Newton will fight Linton Vassell. Heavyweights Justin Wren (former UFC fighter) and Juan Torres will also fight, headlining the preliminary card which streams live on Spike.com.

If you’re a cable cutter who wants to live stream tonight’s Bellator 149: Shamrock vs. Gracie event, the only way to legally do so (that I’m aware of) is via USTVNow.com. You will need one of the paid plans to access Spike and that will run you $19 for one month of access. If you’ve been curious about the service, this is a good excuse to try it out.

USTVNow is a television streaming service for American residents living abroad. As a result, if you’re currently living in the USA, you may need to use a service to make it appear as if you’re located outside of the US to access it. My recommendation is Unlocator. I’ve been a member for over a year and just renewed my subscription for another year. Unlocator is one of the best DNS services I’ve ever used and can highly recommend it.

Enjoy the fights!

How to Live Stream UFC Fight Night 82: Hendricks vs. Thompson

This is the card that was supposed to be UFC 196, but when both Cain Velasquez and Fabrico Werdum suffered injuries, the UFC decided to not replace the main event at the last second and instead keep the card intact and shift it over to Fox Sports 1. What we’re left with is a decent card for a Fight Night event.

At the top we have an interesting match between Johny Hendricks and Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson. Will Hendricks rely on his wrestling to grind out a decision against the striker, or will Wonderboy’s high-level kickboxing lead him to a KO win over a former UFC welterweight champion? Should be interesting either way.

Roy Nelson vs. Jared Rosholt, Rafael Cavalcante vs. Ovince Saint Preux, Joseph Benavidez vs. Zach Makovsky, Misha Cirkunov vs. Alex Nicholson, and Mike Pyle vs. Sean Spencer round out the rest of the main card. The prelims feature Josh Burkman vs. K.J. Noons, Damian Grabowski vs. Derrick Lewis, Ray Borg vs. Justin Scoggins, and Noad Lahat vs. Diego Rivas. On the Fight Pass prelims we have Mickey Gall vs. Mike Jackson and Artem Lobov vs. Alex White. Mickey Gall vs. Mike Jackson is worth checking out because Gall is rumored to be the man to face CM Punk in his debut fight if he can get past Michael Jackson.

Both the preliminary card and the main card of tonight’s UFC Fight Night 82 event will be airing on Fox Sports 1 if you have a cable or satellite subscription. Since you’re visiting this website, I’ll assume that you don’t have access to either and you’re wanting to live stream the event without a traditional TV sub.

To do this, you’ll first need a UFC Fight Pass subscription. Now, if you live in one of the countries where the UFC has a television deal, you’ll see a “blacked out” message in your Fight Pass account if you try and watch tonight’s event. Don’t worry though, there’s an easy way around this regional blackout restriction.

With a DNS service like Unlocator–my personal favorite–you can bypass these regional restrictions. To put it in layman’s terms, it works by making it look like you’re somewhere else. Without Unlocator, the UFC knows you live somewhere it has a television deal so it blacks out the content. With Unlocator, it looks like you’re somewhere the UFC doesn’t have a television deal, allowing you to live stream televised UFC events through your existing Fight Pass account.

Unlocator does cost a little bit of money, but it’s in my opinion a necessity if you’re a cord cutter who’s also a UFC fan. While Pay-Per-Views still cost money, all the free events that air on TV will be open to watch in your Fight Pass account.

Unlocator has a seven-day free trial so you can try it out before committing. There’s also month-to-month, six-month, and twelve-month subscriptions available. I subscribe to the yearly plan to ensure I always have access to live UFC events.

The Unlocator service can be configured on phones, tablets, streaming devices, and even routers. It’s easy to do, and you can be up and running in literally minutes.

Give the free trial a spin today and see how great the combination of Unlocator and UFC Fight Pass is for fight fans like myself.

Make the Event More Fun with DraftKings

DraftKings lets you (possibly) win money by “betting” on fights without literally betting or having to learn the odds or mortgage your house to play. It works like this:

That’s it! DraftKings is fantasy sports, not betting, so you only have to worry about the small entry fee to enter each contest. As I mentioned, tonight’s MMA $50K Haymaker is free to enter (the $3 entry fee is waived) with my special link, so you have a real opportunity to make a bit of coin if you know your stuff.

But best of all, DraftKings can make even the most boring fights fun since you have some money on the line! Give it a try if you’ve never used the service before and you could win your slice of $50,000!

Here’s How to Live Stream the Fights

Tonight’s event kicks off at 7 PM ET on UFC Fight Pass with two fights, followed by four preliminary fights at 8 PM ET, and then the main card starts at 10 PM ET with six fights. This is going to be a long night.

Here are the devices you can use to live stream the fights:

Android TV
If you have an Android TV device like the Nexus Player, Razer Forge TV, or Nvidia Shield Android TV, there is now a UFC Fight Pass app available. Simply find it in the app store and install.

Amazon Fire TV
There is now an official UFC.tv and Fight Pass app available for all of the Amazon Fire TV devices. Install via the device’s app store.

Chromecast
If you have a Google Chromecast, you can stream the event to your Chromecast through your Apple iPhone or iPad or with your Android device through the UFC.tv app, or by visiting the UFC.tv website on your computer.

Roku
If you have a Roku, you can download the UFC.tv and Fight Pass app to watch the fights on your television.

Apple TV
Download the official UFC.tv and Fight Pass app for the Apple TV to watch UFC and Fight Pass content on your television without the need to use AirPlay from your web browser or iOS device.

Xbox
If you have an Xbox Live Gold account, you can download the UFC app and watch live events directly from your Xbox 360 your Xbox One console.

Playstation
You can watch live UFC events on your Playstation 3 and Playstation 4 through the Sony Entertainment Network. You will need to install the Live Events Viewer on your PS3 or PS4 to watch the fights live.

Smart TVs
If you have an LG or Samsung smart TV, search for “UFC” in the television’s app store to download the UFC.tv and Fight Pass app to stream the fights live.

Smart Phones and Tablets
This is probably the least ideal way to watch a UFC event, but if you’re stuck and need to watch the fights on your phone or tablet, simply download the UFC.tv app from Apple’s App Store for your iOS device, via Google Play for your Android device, or if you’re a one of those poor souls using a Blackberry, you can also find a UFC.tv app in Blackberry’s App World.

How to Live Stream UFC Fight Night 81: Dillashaw vs. Cruz

Tonight we have a free card with a few fights that would be right at home on any Pay-Per-View, especially the evening’s headliner of a bantamweight championship fight between TJ Dillashaw and Dominick Cruz. Dillashaw has been doing an imitation of Cruz’s style well enough to win the championship while Cruz was sidelined due to injuries, so it will be interesting to see if TJ’s imitation of Cruz is actually better than Cruz himself.

Also on the card we have former lightweight UFC champion Anthony Pettis taking on former Bellator champion Eddie Alvarez in the co-main slot, and a heavyweight bout between Travis Browne and Matt Mitrione is the third fight from the top. Also on the main card we have Ross Pearson vs. Francisco Trinaldo.

A couple interesting fights on the televised prelims include Patrick Cote vs. Ben Saunders and Daron Cruickshank vs. Paul Felder. Tim Boetsch vs. Ed Herman “headlines” the Fight Pass portion of the card.

How to Watch the Televised Prelims and Main Card with Fight Pass

With the exception of the Fight Pass portion of tonight’s card, the entire event takes place on Fox Sports 1. If you don’t have a cable or satellite subscription, you’ll need to enlist the help of a DNS service if you want to live stream UFC Fight Night 81 through your existing Fight Pass Account.

Like I always mention, the UFC’s many television deals around the globe means that if you live in a country where UFC content is shown on live TV, the UFC can’t simultaneously live stream it on Fight Pass. However, in the countries where the UFC does not have a television deal, the fights that would be aired on television are available to stream on Fight Pass.

With a DNS service like Unlocator, you can make it look like you’re in one of those countries. So, if you’re living in America where the fights are on Fox Sports 1, you can make it look like you’re somewhere else, unlocking the fights in your Fight Pass account. If you’re in Canada where the UFC has a TV deal with TSN, a DNS service like Unlocator will “unblock” the content in your Fight Pass account and let you live stream the entire event. This applies to all countries where the UFC has television deals and has to black out fights that are shown on TV.

Unlocator is available in one-month, six-month, and twelve-month subscriptions, and there’s a seven-day free trail available as well. Simply sign up, configure the device of your choice (router, phone/tablet, streaming device, etc.) and then log into Fight Pass. You’ll then see a “Watch Now” option rather than “Blacked Out”. It’s really that easy!

I’m a Fight Pass and Unlocator subscriber and feel that Fight Pass is only worth it if you can live stream everything. Unlocator makes this possible.

Make the Event More Fun with DraftKings

Have you ever wanted to bet on fights but were confused by things like odds and parlays? DraftKings brings the excitement of betting on fights and strips away all the confusion and the potential to lose your house.

DraftKings runs fantasy sports contests, so you simply enter a contest for a small fee, choose who you think will win along with how and when, and then you score points based on how well you do. Depending on how well you do, you can win money. If you place towards the bottom, this could be about $6. But if you place at the top, the winnings could be in the thousands.

Tonight DraftKings is hosting the MMA $45K Haymaker contest. In this contest, 17,241 players can enter and the winner takes home $3,000! Even if you place 3,525th out of the 17,241 participants, you still get $6. This may not seem like much, but you’re effectively doubling your money since the contest only costs $3 to enter even if you place 3,525th out of 17,241.

If you’re new to DraftKings, please use my link to register. You’ll then be able to enter the MMA $45K Haymaker contest for free! That’s right, if you’re new, the entry fee to the contest will be waived, and you can play for free with my link.

If you’ve ever thought about betting but never did, give DraftKings a try. It’s all the fun of gambling without the confusion or the risk, and you can try it out for free with my special link.

How to Live Stream UFC 195: Lawler vs. Condit

Typically the UFC does a big card to end/start a new year, but that’s not really the case with UFC 195. Since UFC 193 was headlined by Holm/Rousey and UFC 194 had McGregor/Aldo and Rockhold/Weidman at the top of the card, it would have been difficult to put together something that would trump either of those events.

Still, Robbie Lawler had arguably one of the best fights of 2015 with his war against Rory MacDonald back in July. His headlining championship fight against Carlos Condit is sure to be much of the same, and is a great way to start of the year, despite UFC 195 lacking the star power of the two previous Pay-Per-Views.

Also on the UFC 195 card is a heavyweight fight between Andrei Arlovski and Stipe Miocic. I’m going to go out on a limb and say this is going to be a boring fight that goes to a decision. Arlovski seems to be hot and cold when it comes to his fights. They’re either exciting like the Travis Browne fight or complete snoozers like his fight with Brendan Schaub. Considering he’s fighting a somewhat boring fighter in Stipe Miocic, I see this fight being one that doesn’t live up to hopes or expectations.

The rest of the main card includes Lorenz Larkin vs. Albert Tumenov, Diego Brandao vs. Brian Ortega, and Tony Sims vs. Abel Trujillo. The televised prelims feature fights with Masanori Kanehara vs. Michael McDonald, Nina Ansaroff vs. Justine Kish, Drew Dober vs. Scott Holtzman, and Alex Alex Morono vs. Kyle Noke.

Aside from the main event, one of the card’s most intriguing fights is buried waaay down on UFC Fight Pass: Joseph Duffy vs. Dustin Poirier. Duffy is the last man to beat Conor McGregor and he’s looked great in his past UFC fights. With all the talk of McGregor moving up to lightweight, a Duffy rematch is something that could easily be rebooked if he has an exciting performance.

How to Watch the Televised Prelims and Main Card with Fight Pass

UFC Fight Pass and UFC.tv is a great way to watch UFC Pay-Per-Views when you don’t have a cable or satellite subscription. It can also be a great way to watch the televised prelims when you don’t have TV access.

Unfortunately, in countries where the UFC has television deals, it blacks out its televised content from appearing on Fight Pass. That is, unless you have a subscription to a DNS service like Unlocator.

What Unlocator does is make it look like you’re in a country where there are no television deals in place. In these countries, the televised prelims are available to watch on Fight Pass. So, even though you might be located in a country where the blackouts do apply, you can bypass the regional restrictions and open up the televised prelims portion of the event to live stream through your Fight Pass account. This can be done by easily configuring your computer, phone or tablet, streaming media device, or on your router within a few minutes.

Unlocator is available for a test drive with a seven-day free trial, or you can subscribe for one month, six months, or twelve months (one year) at a time. I’m a long-time Fight Pass subscriber and have purchased a year-long Unlocator account to go along with it. If you’re a Fight Pass subscriber, an Unlocator account is essential and I can highly recommend the service.

Make the Event More Fun with DraftKings

If you’ve ever wanted to bet on fights but didn’t know how to do it, DraftKings is for you. It’s like betting, but without all the confusing terminology and odds that people new to the world of gambling find so intimidating.

DraftKings is actually fantasy sports rather than betting, and it works amazingly well for MMA. For UFC 195, for example, you would pick who you think will win their fights, how they will win the fight, and in what round. You start with a payroll and choose fighters until your payroll is empty. Then, you sit back and watch the fights and score points based on how well your picks do.

When the fights are done and points are accumulated, you could win some money. With the DraftKings UFC 195 $6K MMA Haymaker, the top 480 people will win at least $6 with the overall winner taking home $400.

If you’ve never used DraftKings before, simply visit the website using my special link and you can easily register for an account and have the $3 entry fee waived since you’re a first time user and you used my special link. The $20K MMA Haymaker is typically $3 to enter, but with my link, it’s free!

I’m a DraftKings user and can attest that it is easy to use, exciting, and a great way to get the rush of gambling without the risk.
