UFC superstar Conor McGregor will make his highly anticipated return to the octagon at UFC 257 on January 23, where he’ll face #2-ranked lightweight Dustin Poirier in the main event. The main card of UFC 257 is a $69.99 pay-per-view event and will be exclusive to members of the ESPN+ streaming service.
ESPN+ normally costs $5.99 per month or $59.99 for an annual subscription, but new subscribers coming in for UFC 257 can get a 30% discount if they bundle the PPV event with one year of ESPN+. With the deal, you’ll pay $89.98 for UFC 257 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 257, it will cost you $75.98. The bundle deal gives you 11 more months of ESPN+ for only $14 more.
ESPN+ subscribers can also watch every UFC Fight Night event at no extra cost, and members get access to replays, highlights, more live sporting events, and a large library of ESPN original shows.
After a year, your ESPN+ subscription will renew at the normal $59.99 per year price unless you cancel or alter it.
