In this article, we’ll show you how to watch UFC Fight Night 159 Rodriguez vs Stephens live when you’re outside the US and cannot access the geo-blocked ESPN+ stream.

How to watch UFC Fight Night outside the US

The only way to stream UFC Fight Night online is over ESPN+, which is geo-blocked outside the US.

Fortunately, there’s a way to watch the event even if you’re outside the country on Fight Night Saturday. Below you will find instructions on how to do just that.

Streaming UFC Fight Night on ESPN+ outside the US

The price of the ESPN+ subscription is $4.99/month, with UFC Fight Night events included in the cost. Those who are only interested in one particular event will be happy to know they can cancel the subscription any time (if they haven’t subscribed before).

ESPN+ is geo-blocked. This means that MMA fans outside the US won’t be able to stream UFC Fight Night

This is where a VPN comes in handy. It will allow you to change your virtual location to the US, purchase ESPN+, and stream UFC live.

A guide for streaming UFC Fight Night on ESPN+ with a VPN

  1. Choose your VPN. Don’t forget that your connection speed will be slower with a VPN. For HD quality streaming, at least 5 Mbps is required.
  2. Visit the VPN’s website and subscribe. Check whether you’re eligible for the money-back guarantee. Alternatively, choose a VPN with a free trial.
  3. Download the VPN client. Most can be installed on multiple devices. Your ability to run them simultaneously depends on the VPN’s device limit.
  4. Install and launch your VPN client. Log in. If it says that your password or username is incorrect, check whether there are different passwords for the VPN and the website.
  5. Choose your server. It should be in the US because ESPN+ is not available anywhere else.
  6. Visit the ESPN+ website and buy the subscription.
  7. Wait until the event starts. Connect to a VPN server in the US and enjoy the show.
