This weekend kicks off a big stretch of events for the UFC, starting today with UFC on Fox 8 Johnson vs. Moraga. The headliner is a title bout between two flyweights, but I wouldn’t necessarily call it the biggest fight on the card, no pun intended. Other notable fights to look out for are matches between Rory MacDonald and Jake Ellenberger, Robbie Lawler vs. Bobby Voelker, and Liz Carmouche against Jessica Andrade. On the undercard, look for Melvin Guillard vs. Mac Danzig and Daron Cruickshank against Yves Edwards, among others.
The preliminary fights start at 5PM EST and the main card kicks off at 8PM EST and should wrap up by 10PM EST. While tonight’s card is available for free on Fox, there are many other ways to watch it if you don’t have a cable or satellite subscription, or an OTA (over-the-air) setup at your home. Here are a few of the ways you can live stream UFC on Fox 8:
Whether you have an iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch, you can download the UFC.tv app to your device and then stream it to your Apple TV via Airplay to watch it on your TV.
If you have a Roku, you can download the UFC.tv app which links to your account on the UFC.tv website and will allow you to stream events on your Roku.
Samsung Smart TVs and Blu-Ray Players
Go to Samsung’s version of the App store if your hardware supports it and you’ll find a UFC.tv app which, like the Roku, can connect to your UFC.tv account and stream the fights to your television.
USTVNow, NimbleTV, etc.
If you subscribe to one of the online live TV streaming services like USTVNow, Nimble TV, or Aereo, the fights will be available to watch by simply tuning into the Fox station in the respective service. The preliminary fights are available as well depending on which package you subscribe to, and those can be found on FX.
If you have a laptop to connect to your TV for a few hours, or if you want to sit in front of your computer to watch the fights, you can stream them via the UFC’s YouTube account.
If you have an Xbox Live Gold account, you can download the UFC app and watch live events directly from your Xbox 360.
