What are the UFC 240 predictions?
The fighter odds of each UFC event are subject to fluctuate because of the injuries, poor weigh-in results, and other circumstances. A few days before the event, you will find the aggregated betting odds for each fighter along with the predicted outcome.
Please be aware that the information below is not a piece of betting advice! The numbers are to illustrate how (un)evenly matched the two fighters are.
Max Holloway vs Frankie Edgar
- Odds: TBA
- Prediction: Holloway via TKO/KO
Max “The Blessed” Holloway is always stepping into the ring full of confidence, but this time defending his Featherweight title belt shouldn’t be a big problem as he’s a heavy favorite to stand his ground against Frankie “The Answer” Edgar.
For starters, Holloway, 27, is at his prime while 10-year older Edgar is already riding into the sunset. Secondly, Max will have a 5-inch height and leg reach advantage. And thirdly, Holloway has a much higher TKO/KO potential, with half of his wins coming in such manner compared to Frankie’s 29%. The discrepancy is even larger if we look at the knockdown average per 15 minutes – here, Holloway leads 0.51 vs 0.11.
Max Holloway is a more precise striker, with almost two times more significant strikes landed per minute. He should be able to keep the fight on feet with his 83% takedown defense. Finally, Frankie Edgar has fought five times since 2016, losing to Jose Aldo and Brian Ortega. In the meantime, Max Holloway fought six times during the same period, beating Ortega and Aldo two times in a row.
Cris Cyborg vs Felicia Spencer
- Odds: TBA
- Prediction: Cyborg via KO/TKO
Many see this fight as a rebound for Cris Cyborg after losing the Featherweight championship belt to Amanda Nunes. After all, Felicia Spencer is a relatively inexperienced fighter with only 7 professional MMA duels under her belt. Nevertheless, Spencer, who’s a math teacher at Florida Virtual School, is also a reigning Invicta FC Featherweight champion.
The only way that Felicia can expect to win is by a submission – she has a Black belt in Brasilian Ju-Jitsu after all. Unfortunately, Cris Cyborg has a mind-blowing 91% takedown defense, with her only submission loss being her debut MMA fight in 2005. If Spencer fails to switch the fight to the ground, there’s little chance that Cyborg, a Black belt in Muay Thai, won’t put her opponent to sleep in Round 1.

How to stream UFC 240 live
UFC 240 is available exclusively on ESPN+ in the US, while the Prelims are aired on ESPN and ESPN Deportes. This means a big NO to the cable and satellite viewers who will now need a decent internet connection to stream the event smoothly.
To purchase UFC 240 PPV (Main card), first you will need an ESPN+ subscription for $4.99/month or $49.99/year. The PPV itself then costs $59.99. New ESPN+ users will get one year’s worth of subscription and one PPV for $79.99. More pricing plans will be announced later.
The good thing is that ESPN+ has plenty of other sports-related content and supports a bunch of devices:
- Amazon Fire TV & Fire Tablet
- Android TV
- Apple TV
- Samsung Smart TV
- Oculus Go
- PlayStation 4 & Xbox One
This means that the US price of the PPV event remains about the same ($65), but you will get some benefit from the ESPN+ subscription that gives the Early prelims and Fight Night events.
If you want to pay for the UFC 240 up to three times less, read on how to do that by getting access from another country with the help of a VPN.
How to watch UFC 240 live outside the US?
Here’s the list of UFC 238 local broadcasters and their supported devices:
- UFC Fight Pass (USA) – Roku, Apple TV, Android, and iOS
- FightNetwork (Canada) – Roku, Apple TV, Android, and iOS devices

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 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.
The cheapest way to stream UFC 240 with 75% off
You can get a 75% discount for the UFC 240 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 UFC 240 PPV is available.
Instead of paying $64.98 for the PPV and the ESPN+ subscription in the US, a VPN can help you find the best offer for this and the upcoming UFC events.
Countries with the cheapest UFC 240 PPV
The cheapest UFC 240 PPV is in Russia, priced below $15. While everyone wants the best price, going for it isn’t always the best thing to do, because you will have to stream the event from the country where you’ve bought it.
VPN affects connection speed. Therefore, those far from Western Russia should choose an alternative.
Here are the cheapest UFC PPVs in different continents:
- Russia – $15
- Philippines – $17.66
- Germany – $20.29
- Argentina – $34.99
- Canada – $49
Streaming HD content requires 5 Mbps
Before purchasing the PPV, check your connection speed with SpeedTest.net or another tool and see what you get with a VPN turned on. If your speed doesn’t exceed 5 Mbps, chances are you won’t be able to stream UFC 204 in HD. If so, you should instead spend a bit more on a PPV from a less distant country instead of experiencing latency, stuttering, and low video quality.
The best VPN for watching UFC online
The cheapest way to stream UFC is by using a VPN. Now it’s time to pick the best one. Here’s the first rule:
Don’t use a free VPN to watch UFC 240 because they get overcrowded, slowing down your connection
The best VPN for watching UFC live depends on your location and plans. While you can’t go wrong with choosing either NordVPN or ExpressVPN, which are the two industry-leading services, UFC fans in Asia might find Astrill VPN working faster for them because of its unrivaled presence on this continent.
The second rule is to check the money-back guarantee offers. Some, like CyberGhost, offer an impressive 45-day guarantee, allowing you to stream not one but two UFC events for free.
The third rule is to pick a service with a free trial. Most of them require only your email address.
The fourth rule is to think about the number of devices you’ll be streaming the UFC event on simultaneously. CyberGhost gives you seven, NordVPN supports six, but there are also options with an unlimited number of devices. This means it might be worth chipping in with your family or friends to purchase a better VPN and share the account.
A guide on streaming UFC 240 Holloway vs Edgar live with a VPN
- Pick your favorite VPN. Check its free trial availability, money-back guarantee, and the number of simultaneous connections.
- Download the VPN client. Most services have apps for Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, and other devices.
- Install your VPN client. Before logging in, check if your username and password are the same you use to access your account section.
- Choose a server. Test your connection speed to see if it’s enough to stream UFC in HD (5 Mbps). If not, pick a server that’s closer to you.
- Go to UFC.tv and purchase the PPV. Don’t forget that the PPV gives you only the Main card bouts. To watch Early prelims, you will need a UFC Fight Pass, while the Prelims are broadcast by cable networks such as ESPN or Fox Sports.
- Wait until May 11, 10:00 pm ET. Use your VPN to connect to the country where you bought the PPV, and stream the event live.
