High-ranking bantamweights Rob Font and Cody Garbrandt will meet in the main event of this weekend’s UFC Fight Night on ESPN+, with coverage beginning at 4 p.m. ET.

Font and Garbrandt are ranked third and fourth in their weight class, respectively, and a win at UFC Fight Night would put them on a fast track to battle for UFC’s bantamweight championship. Font enters the match with three consecutive victories under his belt, including a first-round knockout that earned him UFC’s Performance of the Night honors in December 2020.

Garbrandt previously held the title in 2017 but suffered a trio of losses that left him considering a move to flyweight. He contracted COVID-19 last year and subsequent health complications have kept him out of the octagon since June 2020.

Both the prelims and main card of this week’s UFC Fight Night will air exclusively on ESPN+, with prelim coverage starting at 4 p.m. ET from UFC’s Las Vegas campus. The main card is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. ET.

UFC Fight Night: Font vs. Garbrandt will be held without fans in attendance because of the COVID-19 pandemic. UFC 264 on July 10 will be the first Las Vegas UFC event with a full crowd since the pandemic began. UFC has consistently implemented safety precautions for fighters and staff, including advanced medical screenings, regular testing, temperature checks, and social distancing guidelines.

Charles Oliveira and Michael Chandler will fight for the vacant UFC lightweight championship in the main event of UFC 262 tonight at 10 p.m. ET on ESPN+. UFC expects a capacity crowd of 19,000 at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas.

Oliveira enters the match with an eight-fight win streak, including seven successful finishes by submission and knockout. Oliveira holds UFC’s all-time record for most submission wins with 14. Former Bellator lightweight champion Michael Chandler made his UFC debut in January with a first-round knockout win over Dan Hooker.

The winner of Oliveira vs. Chandler will likely face the victor of the UFC 264 main event between Dustin Poirier and Conor McGregor. UFC’s lightweight championship has been vacant since March; former champ Khabib Nurmagomedov announced his retirement following an October 2020 title defense.

This means that you have to subscribe to the ESPN+ streaming service before you’re able to purchase the main card PPV. An ESPN+ membership costs $6 a month or $60 a year. The UFC 262 PPV event requires a one-time fee of $70 on top of your ESPN+ subscription.

What is ESPN+ 4x3

Monthly Subscription Service (small)Bundle Monthly Subscription (small)

Streaming has largely overtaken cable and satellite as the preferred method to watch movies and TV shows at your leisure. Low price points and the ability to watch on the go are primary reasons for the migration, but one sector has largely resisted any such paradigm shift – professional sports.

If you’re a sports fan, you might be shelling out for traditional cable just to watch your favorite team. Hefty deals between sports leagues and TV networks have prevented services like Netflix from streaming games, but ESPN now has a low-cost service that should satiate many sports fans’ appetites.

What is ESPN+?

ESPN+ is a streaming subscription service that’s considered a complement to existing ESPN content, not technically a separate platform. Think of it as an add-on to the standard ESPN app with live games, exclusive on-demand videos, and access to what was formerly known as ESPN Insider.

Previously, ESPN Insider offered subscribers exclusive written articles for a monthly $5 fee. ESPN decided to add video to the mix and created ESPN+ for a similar price, giving subscribers access to stories, live streaming, and on-demand videos.

What’s included with ESPN+?

What is ESPN+? We break down this network’s streaming subscription
ESPN+ is available to stream on mobile devices, media players, and select smart TVs.

ESPN+ includes a bevy of exclusive video content from live games to on-demand shows and exclusive stories. Unfortunately, the live games come with commercials – just like regular TV.

Subscribers can watch live games from the MLB, NHL, and MLS when their seasons are active; there are no live NBA or NFL games. There’s also PGA golf, UFC, college football, international soccer, and tennis. You can read more details on how to watch Major League Baseball on ESPN+ and other services here.

In addition to games, ESPN+ also features original shows, including in-depth game recaps and analyses hosted by Peyton Manning and Daniel Cormier, and a shorter version of “NFL Primetime.” Documentary programs, like “30 for 30,” as well as full replays of historic NFL games are also available to stream on-demand.

Does ESPN+ offer UFC PPV and UFC Fight Night events?

If you’re a fan of UFC or boxing, ESPN+ often offers exclusive pay-per-view (PPV) matches so you’ll get even more content from the service. The PPV events cost $70 for existing subscribers. ESPN+ also offers a special discounted bundle for new subscribers that includes a one-year membership and one PPV event for $89.98.

The next UFC PPV fight is UFC 262: Oliveira vs. Chandler on May 15. The match will take place in Texas with a sold-out crowd.

In addition to PPV matches, ESPN+ also features access to UFC Fight Night events. Fight Nights are typically included as part of a regular ESPN+ subscription for $6 a month.

What’s not included with ESPN+?

ESPN+ is technically separate from ESPN, ESPN2, and ESPNews, so a subscription will not grant you access to live games being broadcast on those networks, including any live games during Monday Night Football and Sunday Night Baseball. That said, some MLB games are still available to be streamed.

Your ESPN+ account is not the same as a cable login with access to the ESPN networks, so there’s no way of getting around it either.

How much does ESPN+ cost?

An ESPN+ subscription will run you $6 a month, or $60 annually. If you do the math, this means that an annual plan will save you about $12 a year compared to paying for 12 months with the month-to-month plan.

If you’re looking for even more streaming content, there’s also a combo package that bundles ESPN+ with Hulu and the Disney Plus streaming service for just $14 a month – a $6 savings each month compared to getting all three services separately. Existing ESPN+ members can even upgrade to the bundle without having to cancel their current subscription. You can upgrade here.

Where can I watch ESPN+?

One of the cool things about ESPN+ is that you can access it through the current ESPN app.

Instead of launching a separate app, all the ESPN+ content is unlocked in the ESPN app once you subscribe. The app is available on virtually every platform you can imagine – phones, tablets, laptops, Roku players, Fire TV products, Apple TV, Android TV, Chromecast, PS4, Xbox One, and Samsung smart TVs.

You can also stream on up to three devices simultaneously with one account.

How do I sign up for ESPN+?

Head over to the ESPN+ website and create an account, or open your existing ESPN account and you’ll be prompted to sign up.

UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman will face Jorge Masvidal in a highly anticipated rematch in the main event of UFC 261. The matchup is just one of three title fights scheduled for the pay-per-view event on April 24.

The main card of UFC 261 is an ESPN+ exclusive and costs $70 in addition to an ESPN+ membership. ESPN+ normally costs $6 a month or $60 for an annual subscription, but new subscribers coming in for UFC 261 can get a 30% discount if they bundle the PPV event with one year of service.

Gastelum has lost three of his lasts four fights, including matches against Adesanya and Till, but rebounded with a win over Ian Heinisch in February at UFC 258.

ESPN+ normally costs $6 a month or $60 for an annual subscription, but new subscribers coming in for UFC 260 can get a 30% discount if they bundle the PPV event with one year of the service. With the deal, you’ll pay $89.98 for UFC 260 and a full year of ESPN+. Without the deal, that combination would normally cost $129.98.

The bundle deal also presents a good alternative for people who might be thinking of signing up for a monthly ESPN+ plan just to watch the PPV. If you sign up for one month of ESPN+ and buy UFC 260, it will cost you $76. The bundle deal gives you 11 more months of ESPN+ for only $14 more.

After a year, your ESPN+ subscription will renew at the normal $60 a year price unless you cancel or alter it. Check out our full ESPN+ breakdown for more info about what’s included with the service.

How to combine Disney Plus, ESPN+ and ad-free Hulu

Bundle Monthly Subscription (small)

At just $8 a month, Disney Plus is one of the most affordable streaming services you can sign up for. The platform features a large collection of movies and shows from Disney’s various brands and franchises, including Disney, Pixar, Star Wars, Marvel, and National Geographic.

As extensive as the Disney Plus library is, however, the platform does have some weak spots. Most notably, Disney Plus doesn’t offer sports or any currently airing seasons of network shows. The service’s family-friendly library also lacks any R-rated content. Thankfully, Disney Plus offers a discounted bundle with ESPN+ and Hulu to give subscribers those options.

The bundle costs $14 a month, which is about $6 less per month than you’d pay if you subscribed to all three services separately. Though the deal includes the version of Hulu with ads by default, you can pay more to get the bundle with ad-free Hulu or Hulu + Live TV.

How much does the Disney Plus, ESPN+, and Hulu bundle cost?

The bundle with Disney Plus, ESPN+, and Hulu is available in a variety of packages, with prices starting at $14 a month. Here’s a full breakdown of bundle options:

Bundle plan Price
Disney Plus, Hulu Basic, and ESPN+ bundle: $14 a month
Disney Plus, Hulu (ad-free), and ESPN+ bundle: $20 a month
Disney Plus, Hulu Basic + Live TV, and ESPN+ bundle: $73 a month
Disney Plus, Hulu (ad-free) + Live TV, and ESPN+ bundle: $79 a month

How to sign up for the Disney Plus, ESPN+, and Hulu bundle

If you live in the US, signing up for the Disney Plus bundle with Hulu Basic and ESPN+ is as simple as visiting the Disney Plus website and selecting the bundle option. The base package costs $14 a month. If you’re a current subscriber to one of the services, you can upgrade to the discounted bundle here.

After entering in your email address and payment information you’ll be able to activate your account on each service. You can use the same account information across each platform, but you will need to access each service’s app separately.

This default bundle only includes the ad-supported version of Hulu, but you can get the ad-free or live TV plans if you sign up directly through Hulu. We’ve broken down the process below to make things easy.

How to combine Disney Plus, ESPN+, and ad-free Hulu or Hulu + Live TV

  1. If you’re a new subscriber to these services, visit the Hulu bundle page here to sign up.
  2. You can then select which version of Hulu you’d like with the bundle: Hulu with ads ($14/month), Hulu without ads ($20/month), or Hulu + Live TV ($73/month).
  3. Enter in the required account information and payment details to continue.
  4. Once you finish the sign up process, you’ll be able to access Hulu, Disney Plus, and ESPN+ through their respective apps.
  5. If you’d like to switch Hulu plans or cancel at a later date, you can adjust your subscription through the “Manage Your Account” section of the Hulu website.

Can I upgrade to ad-free Hulu or Hulu + Live TV if I already have the bundle?

If you subscribed to the bundle through Hulu, you can easily upgrade your Hulu plan through the “Manage Your Account” section of the Hulu website.

However, if you originally subscribed to the bundle through Disney, you’ll need to cancel your existing bundle subscription first if you want to upgrade your Hulu plan. After you cancel your bundle subscription, you can sign up for a bundle with Hulu Premium or Hulu + Live TV here.
