The main card of UFC 295 is an ESPN+ exclusive PPV. That means you’ll have to buy the event and also be an ESPN+ subscriber. The PPV portion of the event costs $80, and there’s no way around that. There are, however, a few different options for buying the ESPN+ subscription. Unfortunately there isn’t an ESPN+ free trial, so the cheapest option is to get one month of ESPN+ for $11, bringing the total for the event to $91. If you don’t yet have a Disney+ or Hulu account, you can buy the Disney Bundle for $15. This gets you access to all three streaming sites, so it’s definitely worth it if you’re interested in even two of them.
The third option is a special promotion for this UFC event. You can currently buy the PPV and a year of ESPN+ for $135. Since a year of ESPN+ is normally $110, this is saving you $55 total. This is a great chance for UFC fans to grab an ESPN+ subscription and save some money. Remember, you’ll have to be an ESPN+ subscriber for the next UFC PPV too, so you might as well have a membership.
