All UFC Fight Night events, which are now also known as “UFC on ESPN+,” will be available to stream on ESPN+ free of charge. There is no additional fee to watch this content.
However, this is not true of the main UFC bouts, which are PPV-exclusive. You will be able to watch undercard content using ESPN+ without paying an additional fee.
However, once the main card and title bouts begin, you will be blocked from watching the fights, unless you purchase a PPV pass. Currently, the price of UFC PPV on ESPN Plus is $59.99 per match. This may change in the future, though.

ESPN+ 2019 Events Schedule – Top Rank Boxing
If you’re interested in combat sports, ESPN+ is definitely a great streaming service for you. Not only do you get UFC, but you also get a good number of boxing events from Top Rank Boxing, one of the top boxing promoters in America. Here is a quick overview of the upcoming Top Rank Boxing matches and events on ESPN+ in 2019.
Saturday, August 10 – Jason Sosa-Haskell vs. Lydell Rhodes
On Saturday, August 10, super featherweights Jason Sosa-Haskell (22-3-4, 15 KOs) and Lydell Rhodes (27-3-1, 13 KOs) will face each other in a 10-round bout at Liacouras Center, Philadelphia, PA. Co-headlining the event is the middleweight bout between Edgar Berlenga and Gergory Trennel.
Interestingly, Sosa-Haskell and Lydell Rhodes were not the original main contenders in this event. Carl “The Jackal” Frampton was expected to face Emmanuel Dominguez, but he fractured his hand on Monday, August 5th, causing the original title bout to be canceled.
Saturday, August 24 – Sergey Kovalev vs. Anthony Yarde

The next Top Rank Boxing event on ESPN+ is a bout between Vasily Lomachenko and Luke Campbell, which will take place on Saturday, August 31st at The O2 Arena in London. The ESPN+ stream will begin at 5:00 PM ET.
This bout will be an interesting one to watch. Vasily Lomachenko is widely considered to be one of the best pound-for-pound boxers in the world, and has won world titles in three weight divisions since his debut in 2013.
Luke Campbell, who gained notoriety when he won a gold medal for the UK in the 2012 Olympic Games, will certainly face a formidable challenge as he takes on Lomachenko in this bout, for which the WBA/WBO/WBC lightweight titles will all be on the line.
