Watch Poirier vs. McGregor Live and TV guide, UFC 257 Full Fight 2021.Poirier vs. McGregor Live: team news, kickoff time, predictions, PPV live Online
With UFC 257 right around the corner, the promotion has dropped the pay-per-view event’s official trailer. The video, which features headliners Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier, artistically walks fans through the two fighters’ history together from their 2014 matchup to the current day. The highlight begins with the lead-up to UFC 178, which hosted their first fight won by McGregor after a whole load of trash-talking in the buildup.
Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) has spent the past nine months struggling to lay enough track in front of the train to keep the promotion going amidst the craziness of a COVID-centric 2020. So it’s not that much of a surprise that the promotion hasn’t focused too much on the return of Conor McGregor at UFC 257 on Jan. 23, 2021.
It’s almost time for UFC 257 and if you just can’t wait to catch the epic-looking MMA event, ESPN+ has officially opened PPV sales so you can get prepared well in advance.
Whoever you’re cheering on during this weekend’s MMA action, we’ll show you how to live stream UFC 257’s main card from anywhere in the world.
1. UFC TV: Official Channel
UFC TV is the official channel to watch the UFC 257 match. You can either get a UFC Pay-Per-View subscription for $64.99 for HD quality. There you’ll purchase for each match and are for live events. There’s also the UFC Fight Pass, which is a subscription-based service that costs $9.99 per month.
The price goes down to $8.99 per month if you’ll pay twice a year, or $7.99 if you’ll pay for the full year. The latter lets you watch past MMA events, check out fighter profiles, and find out about new fights as they are scheduled. Some live events are also available. UFC.TV is available worldwide and you can check our review if you have the time.
2. ESPN +:- Official Channel

How much that costs depend on whether or not you already subscribe to the service. If you don’t, then the best way to go is with a UFC Bundle, costing you $79.99. That won’t just buy you the UFC 257 PPV, but you’ll get a year-long subscription to ESPN+ (that would normally cost $60 alone). For those that already have an ESPN+ subscription, you can still buy access to UFC 257 for $59.99.
3. BT Sports
UFC fans in the UK can watch all the action at UFC 257 on BT Sport. The network has the exclusive rights to UFC in the UK and Ireland and will offer a live stream online as well as spoiler-free coverage on TV. However, Saturday’s Main Card starts quite late in the UK at 3 am so do prepare accordingly. If that’s a bit too late for you, don’t worry as BT Sport also offers a spoiler-free replay page which will showcase reruns of the two main fights shortly after their completion as well as the full main and preliminary cards at a later time.
For those who don’t mind losing sleep to catch all the action at UFC 257, BT Sport will show a live stream of Cejudo vs Moraes on its BT Sport app and on its website (the Pre-Fight Show begins at midnight). If you’d prefer to watch on your TV, the network will show the full event on BT Sport 1 HD at the same time. If you’re a BT Sport subscriber but find yourself outside the UK and want to tune in, it’s simple to do with a handy tool. Simply grab a VPN and follow the instructions above to live stream the action.
4. Sling TV
Next up, we have Sling TV to watch UFC 257. It is one of the platforms that are particularly easy to customize. There are three bundles to choose from – Orange ($25/mo), Blue ($25/mo), and Orange + Blue ($40/mo). You can then add more channels by choosing any of the extra packages grouped by interest, or premium networks. In the end, it just depends on how much you’re willing to pay.
Sling TV is home to a lot of channels. ESPN channels – and there are quite a few of them -are all present in the Blue and the Orange + Blue bundles. This means you have two pricing options, as you can see above.
The platform offers no cloud DVR space to its users, at least not by default. You can enjoy 50 hours of cloud space for the price of $5 per month. Things branch out when we discuss watching Sling TV on multiple devices at once. That’s because Blue subscribers enjoy three simultaneous streams, while Orange + Blue subscribers enjoy four of them. As a side note, the Orange bundle comes with a single stream per account. Read Sling TV review for all the details you need to make a decision.
5. Hulu TV
Next up we have Hulu, which is better known for the video-on-demand service it offers. The live TV plan, however, which costs $44.99 per month is growing in popularity, as it offers dozens of great channels. There are also a couple of extra channel packs you can add, or premium networks if you want to customize it all. Hulu’s list of channels includes a lot of networks, including several ESPN channels. In a word, you’re good to go.
On Hulu, subscribers can access up to 50 hours of cloud DVR space, but they can also upgrade to 200 hours by paying $14.99 per month. Even though regular VOD Hulu subscribers can only watch content on one device, the live TV plan comes with two simultaneous streams. The “unlimited screens” feature that’s available for another $14.99 per month gives users unlimited simultaneous streams while on the home network. The number drops to three screens while away.

6. YouTube TV
Straight from Mountain View, YouTube TV has some great features and a great collection of channels. With a single bundle available for $40 per month, and a bunch of premium networks, YouTube TV hopes to appeal to those who don’t like making a gazillion choices to customize their plans.
On YouTube TV, you can enjoy loads of channels. Thankfully, several ESPN channels are also on the list and can help you watch any UFC fight you want. YouTube TV comes with unlimited cloud DVR space so you can record anything your heart desires. As a bonus, the recordings are saved for up to nine months.
