UFC 294’s main card features Makhachev vs. Volkanovski 2 for the UFC lightweight championship. In the co-main event, we’ll see Kamura Usman vs. Khamzat Chimaev. We’ll show you where to watch UFC 294 live stream no matter where you are and detail the latest UFC 294 PPV prices.

Today’s main event was originally going to feature Islam Makhacev facing Charles Oliveira, but the Brazilian fighter had to pull out due to an injury suffered during training. Kamaru Usman was also a late addition to the main card after Paulo Costo was forced to withdraw from his bout against Chimaev while recovering from surgery.

If you plan to watch live, you’ll want to set an early alarm, as UFC 294 has a 10 a.m. ET start time on account of taking place at Etihad Arena in Abu Dhabi.

How to watch UFC 294 everywhere else

If you’re not in the US, you still have a few options to watch UFC 294. The fight is available to watch in the UK with TNT Sports, available as a £30 per month add-on for most major TV providers in the country (including BT, Discovery+, EE, Sky, and Virgin).

In the UK, big numbered UFC events aren’t usually locked behind a separate PPV paywall (unless McGregor makes a comeback, that is). Instead, they exist as a part of a regular monthly subscription service. UFC is now on TNT Sports (the new name of BT Sport), but you can still get it for a very affordable price at just £30 a month on a one-month rolling contract. You’ll find TNT Sports at this price on the premium Discovery Plus package, which includes access to TNT Sports. The prelims and main card will air on TNT Sports 1.

You can download the Discovery Plus app on Android, iOS, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Chromecast, Samsung, LG, PlayStation, and Xbox. You can also stream it through any web browser.

In Canada, UFC 294 will be available as a pay-per-view through most TV providers and directly via UFC Fight Pass. The pay-per-view costs $65.

The UFC 294 main event is available on UFC Fight Pass in most other regions, including Australia, New Zealand, Germany, Italy, Spain, Poland, Switzerland, Asia, Africa, and Brazil. Check local provider listings for other main event and prelim viewing options.

Even outside any of the above locations, you can still access the fight no matter where you are with a VPN. A VPN, which stands for virtual private network, bypasses geo-restrictions so you can stream UFC 294 through services carrying the fight without being in the US, UK, or Canada. A VPN also provides users with a more secure internet connection. 

Our top recommendation for the best VPN service is ExpressVPN. New members can get a 30-day money-back guarantee, and your first year is 49% off, plus an extra three months thrown in free for good measure. If you’d like to learn more about the app, take a look at our detailed ExpressVPN review.
