Fight fans who want to watch UFC 170 live online will be able to catch some of the action from the comfort of their computer chairs and avoid the $54.95 fee.
Like with all of its major events, Ultimate Fighting Championship is opening up part of the UFC 170 card for free, offering live streaming video of all preliminary fights along with live scores of the rest of the action. The preliminary card is available through the UFC Fight Pass, which is available for a free trial.
Fans who watch UFC 170 online will get a chance to see Ronda Rousey take on Sara McMann in the headline fight. Rousey is coming off a win over rival Miesha Tate, one in which she generated some controversy by refusing to shake her opponent’s hand after the match.
In an interview before weigh-ins this week, Rousey said once it’s time to step into the ring, she flips into fight mode.
“When I start putting my hair in fight hair, and put my outfit on … it’s fight time. We walk, and we go,” Rousey said. “It’s not a good time to talk to me.
“I don’t know why everyone thinks I’m angry. I’m not going around bubbly when I’m about to go fight. I’m focused on what I’m doing. I’m not playing around. This is a fight. I have to be entirely present and focused.”
The main card of UFC 170 starts at 10 pm ET from Las Vegas.
