With UFC 248 approaching, MMA fans don't want to be scrambling at the last minute to find a way to watch. We all know it's better to have your setup locked in, so you don't miss a second of the card and especially the main card. Two title matches make this one worth watching.

This weekend, you can stream a full card of big fights with UFC 248 Pay-Per-View featuring Adesanya vs. Romero. The event is going to be on Saturday, March 7 from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, and it will be a split-broadcast event available with cards on ESPN+, ESPN and PPV.

Whether you have an Amazon Fire TV Stick, the Fire TV Stick 4K, or the Fire TV Cube, here's how you can watch UFC 248.

How to watch UFC 248 through ESPN+ on Amazon Fire TV

  1. Navigate to the ESPN app on the Amazon App Store.
  2. Choose which device you want to install the app on via the dropdown menu, then hit Deliver.
  3. Note that ESPN + requires a subscription, paid either monthly or annually.
  4. Purchase the right to watch UFC 247. It's a pay-per-view (PPV) event, so you cannot watch it for free.
  5. If you're a new subscriber, you'll have the opportunity to sign up for a year of ESPN+ plus the event at a discounted price.

How much does the UFC 248 pay-per-view cost?

On its own, the UFC 248 PPV costs $49.99. However, you can also purchase UFC 247 and a year of ESPN+ at a discounted cost of $84.98 if you're a new subscriber and sign up for an annual account. Monthly subscribers also have access to this deal.

How to watch UFC 248 outside the U.S.

Unfortunately, because ESPN+ region locks UFC PPV content, there's no easy way to watch it on your Amazon Fire TV if you're outside the U.S.. We're not saying that it's impossible, mind you. Only that it's challenging.

The first thing you'll need is a VPN account. This allows you to trick the ESPN+ application into thinking you're watching from the United States, giving you access to all the content that entails. Of course, given that you can't use a VPN on your TV, you'll also need a router that supports internal VPNs.
