UFC 297 Live Stream: How to watch Strickland vs Dricus Du Plessis Full Fight Main Card. UFC 297 heads north of the border tonight to the Scotiabank Arena in Toronto, Canada. There's a 10 p.m. ET start time for the main card. If you want to watch the prelim fights, you'll need to start watching a couple of hours earlier at 8 p.m. ET. Wherever you are in the world, we can show you how to watch the UFC 297 live stream from anywhere and detail where to find the best PPV



UFC 297's main card features two title bouts tonight in a co-main event card, with Sean Strickland vs. Dricus Du Plessis for the middleweight title and Raquel Pennington vs. Mayra Bueno Silva for the women's bantamweight belt.

As usual in the US, the main card's PPV livestream is exclusive to ESPN Plus members, but if you're outside the country, you can tap into a few international viewing options. We'll also guide you step-by-step on how to use a VPN to watch UFC 297, no matter where you are. You might even find that some international viewing options are cheaper than your home country, and a VPN is a great way to save on pricy PPV fees.

UFC PPV + Annual ESPN+ Membership (Bundle)

Ways to save on the UFC 297 PPV price
If you're not a member and plan to sign up for ESPN Plus to watch UFC 297, you can take advantage of a discounted package.

New subscribers can purchase a one-year ESPN Plus plan with access to UFC 297 included for $134.98. An annual subscription alone usually costs $110, so you're saving a tidy sum on the $80 PPV price with this option. ESPN Plus will renew at the regular annual fee of $110 after your first year unless you cancel. Or, as mentioned earlier, you could use a VPN to take advantage of cheaper prices outside of the US.

Where to watch UFC 297 everywhere else
If you're not in the US, you still have a few options to watch UFC 297. The fight is available to watch in the UK with TNT Sports, available as a £31 per month add-on for most major TV providers in the country (including BT, Discovery+, EE, Sky, and Virgin).

In the UK, these numbered UFC events are rarely locked behind an additional PPV paywall in addition to the usual subscription fee, which is fair given the main event is usually on super late. UFC 297 can be viewed as a part of a Discovery+ sub on TNT Sports (formerly BT Sport). It costs £31.99 a month for the required Premium tier (this also unlocks the Champions League, Moto GP, boxing, and more).

The Discovery Plus app is available on Android, iOS, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Chromecast, Samsung, LG, PlayStation, and Xbox. You can also stream it through any web browser. This UK app is the cheapest option by some distance when comparing international UFC 297 prices, and using a VPN is a great way to unlock it from overseas.

In Canada, UFC 297 will be available as a pay-per-view through most TV providers and directly via UFC Fight Pass. The pay-per-view costs $65.

The UFC 297 main event is available on UFC Fight Pass in most other regions, including Australia, New Zealand, Germany, Italy, Spain, Poland, Switzerland, Asia, Africa, and Brazil. Check local provider listings for other main event and prelim viewing options.

Even outside any of the above locations, you can still access the event no matter where you are with a VPN (virtual private network). These apps bypass geo-restrictions so you can stream UFC 297 through services carrying the fight without being in the US, UK, or Canada. A VPN also provides users with a more secure internet connection and protects your digital security by keeping your online activity private from your service provider and would-be snoopers.
