UFC 247 Jones vs Reyes will take place in Toyota Center, Houston, at 10:00 pm ET on February 8. UFC is available exclusively on ESPN+ in the US, while the Prelims are aired on ESPN and ESPN Deportes.
Unfortunately, ESPN is unavailable outside the US, which means you’ll need to use a Virtual Private Network (VPN) to avoid geo-blocking. We recommend using NordVPN as it’s one of the fastest VPN services with the largest server fleet and great security credentials.

How to watch UFC 247 via UFC.tv
To stream via UFC.tv, you need to buy a PPV of the Main card. The Prelims are accessible via ESPN, while the Early prelims require either ESPN+ or UFC Fight Pass.
The UFC.tv app supports many types of devices, including Android, iOS, Fire TV, and Roku.
Even if you find PPV and cable available in your current location, you can still get up to 75% off the PPV price with a VPN.
If you want to pay for the UFC 247 PPV up to three times less, learn below how to do just that by getting access from another country with the help of a VPN.
How to get the cheapest PPV of UFC 247
You can get a 75% discount for the UFC 247 PPV because UFC uses geo-blocking and charges each country differently. It also means that in some countries, UFC.tv PPV is unavailable.
The issue of geo-blocking can be solved with a VPN. It hides your real IP address and your location, allowing you to connect from a country where a cheaper UFC 247 PPV is available.
Countries with the cheapest UFC 247 Jones vs Reyes
Here are the cheapest UFC PPVs in different countries and continents (prices converted to $):
- Russia – $15
- Germany – $20
- Indonesia – $24.99
- Philippines – $24.99
- Japan – $31
- Argentina – $34.99
- Pakistan – $34.99
- New Zealand – $40.29
- Canada – $49
- Australia – $49.75
While the cheapest UFC 247 PPV is in Russia, many best VPN providers no longer have servers in this country because of its requirement to keep logs and other privacy issues. Therefore the best PPV option is Germany.
To stream in HD with a VPN, make sure your download speed is at least 5 Mbps
Before purchasing the PPV, check your connection speed with a VPN turned on. If your speed doesn’t exceed 5 Mbps, chances are you won’t be able to stream UFC 247 in HD. If so, you should instead spend a bit more on a PPV from a less distant country.
NordVPN has 5500+ servers in 59 countries, which means you should be able to watch UFC 247 Jones vs Reyes from anywhere using this service.

What are the UFC 247 predictions?
The fighter odds of each UFC event are subject to fluctuate because of the injuries, poor weigh-in results, and other circumstances.
Please be aware, however, that the information below is not a piece of betting advice! The numbers are to illustrate how (un)evenly matched Jones and Reyes are.
Jones vs Reyes
- Odds: Jones (-450) vs Reyes (+350)
- Prediction: Jones via decision
After less than three years in the octagon, Reyes is getting his first title shot. It will be his 7th UFC fight against a decorated yet controversial reigning Light heavyweight champion, who’s been dominating the league for over a decade and shows no signs of stopping. So, does Reyes even stand a chance against Jones?
Both contestants are of similar height and weight, but “Bones” has a huge reach advantage that he’s been successfully using throughout his professional career. Also, he’s a much more experienced fighter, having fought 27 bouts against Dominick’s 12. Furthermore, while Reyes has a Blue belt in Brasilian Jiu-Jitsu, Jon has been awarded a Purple belt, in addition to his Black belt in Gaidojutsu.
Jones’ submission expertise has translated into winning 26% of his fights on the ground, while Reyes did so only at an 18% rate. But in the last 7 years, “Bones” has won two-thirds of his fights by decision, while “The Devastator” looks more well-versed, combining KO’s, TKO’s, decisions, and submissions. The question remains if he’ll manage to penetrate Jon’s defense.
I would be surprised if Jones would choose a strategy other than dominating throughout the five rounds and winning by a decision. His reach will keep Dominick away from making takedown attempts or landing a powerful blow. Therefore, this quite one-sided match can only become interesting if Reyes takes a huge risk to seize those few moments that Jones might give him.
