UFC 303 has finally arrived after some substantial fight card shake-ups. Alex Pereira of Brazil and Jiri Prochazka of the Czech Republic will once again compete for the light heavyweight champion title on Saturday night. Keep reading to learn how to watch UFC 303 from anywhere.

The Pereira vs. Prochazka main event fight replaces the original UFC 303 lineup between Conor McGregor and Michael Chandler, which was axed earlier this month after McGregor withdrew. Pereira and Prochazka return to the Octagon about half a year after they last met during UFC 295. The two previously duked it out for the vacant light heavyweight championship title, which Pereira won by TKO in the second round. Pereira last successfully defended the title against Jamahal Hill at UFC 300. Now, Pereira will attempt to defend his title from Prochazka at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

If you're a UFC fan, it's business as usual when it comes to tonight's viewing options. You'll need to pay for a streaming service subscription (if you don't have it already) and a pay-per-view (PPV) fee to get in on the main event action. Keep reading for all the details on UFC 303, including the full fight card, global watch options, and a potential savings opportunity.

UFC 303's main event will be available to stream on Saturday night at 10 p.m. ET on ESPN+. The prelims will start two hours before, and early prelims start even earlier in the evening. Subscriptions cost $10.99 a month, but you'll need to also pay a PPV fee of $79.99 to view the main event.

We know this is a bit of a hefty price. Fortunately, there's a savings opportunity for people who don't already have an ESPN+ account. If you're planning to hang onto ESPN+ for more than a month, you can sign up for the service via its PPV package, which bundles an annual plan with a UFC PPV fight (in this case, UFC 303). This costs $134.98, in comparison to the standard annual plan ($109.99) and PPV fee ($79.99) combined rates, which typically cost $189.98 in total. Keep in mind that you'll still need to pay for future PPV fights, but it's still $50 savings up front.

UFC PPV + Annual ESPN+ Membership (Bundle)

ESPN+ is the home of UFC PPV events, meaning that fans need to purchase a subscription in addition to buying the one-off cards. ESPN is offering a bundle for both new subscribers and monthly subscribers to purchase a specific UFC PPV event along with a year-long subscription to the streaming service.

Where to watch UFC 303 everywhere else

UFC fans in the UK can live stream the fights through TNT Sports with a Premium Discovery+ subscriptionat £39.99 a month. Since the fights are on so late in the UK, these events don't typically require an additional PPV rate.

Canadians can tune in by buying the fight through UFC Fight Pass for $65. Most major TV services also sell the fight for a PPV fee. Fans outside of these countries should check their local listings since UFC has a pretty broad reach.

You can also try out a VPN to keep up with the fights on some of the above subscription services if you're going to be out of the country. Short for virtual private networks, VPNs are simple ways to alter your device's virtual location so that you can still use all of your usual apps and websites while traveling. Our go-to recommendation is ExpressVPN since it's easy to use and has a 30-day money-back guarantee. Check out our ExpressVPN review for additional information, and keep reading to learn how to use VPNs.
