Pay-per-view events don’t get much bigger than UFC 229, featuring the return of prodigal son Conor McGregor who’s attempting to reclaim his UFC lightweight title from unbeaten champion Khabib Nurmagomedov in Las Vegas on Saturday, Oct. 6. Thankfully, you no longer need cable or a satellite dish to watch at home. If you’re looking for a Khabib-McGregor live stream, here’s everything you need to know to watch online.

UFC 229: Khabib vs McGregor live stream

No matter how you watch UFC 229 PPV, it’s always going to cost the same: $54.99 (for standard definition) or $64.99 (HD).

There are three primary ways you can order and watch online, but it’s worth noting (and repeating), the preliminary bouts are divided up between UFC’s Fight Pass and FS1 (more on both in just a bit). Here’s how to get the Khabib-McGregor live stream you’re looking for.

1) UFC.TV | Google Play, App Store

Devices: Amazon Fire Stick and Fire TV, Roku, Apple TV, iOS and Android devices

The easiest way to order UFC 229 is through UFC’s official website or app. Once you’ve created an account and purchased the event, either for yourself or as a gift, you can watch on your computer or through the app, which is available on all of the devices listed above.

2) Amazon Prime

Devices: Amazon Fire Stick, Fire TV, Fire tablets, and Fire phone; Roku, Google TV, TiVo, Nvidia Shield, PlayStation 3 and 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Wii

Ordering UFC 229 on Amazon Prime is just like buying or renting a movie—only a lot more expensive. All you have to do is sign into your account and complete the standard checkout process. Then you’ll be able to stream live from your browser or from the Amazon Prime app on any of the devices listed above.

3) Sling TV

Devices: Amazon Fire TVs, Android Fire Stick, Apple TV, Android TV, Roku, Xbox One, Google Chromecast, and iOS and Android devices

Sling TV is one of the premier live TV streaming services, and now you can order UFC PPV events directly from the service. Sling TV offers three different channel packages. To make sure you get FS1 to watch the UFC 229 undercard matches, you’ll want either Sling Blue ($25 per month) or Sling Orange + Blue ($40 per month). Both offer a great selection of sports channels, like NFL Network, FS2, and NBCSN.

UFC 229 live stream: Fight Pass prelims

UFC’s Fight Pass will be exclusively hosting three fights, starting at 6:30pm ET:

  • Lina Lansberg vs. Yana Kunitskaya
  • Gray Maynard vs. Nik Lentz
  • Ryan LaFlare vs. Tony Martin

If you’re willing to make a long-term commitment, you’ll save some money on a Fight Pass subscription. It costs $9.99 per month, but only $8.99 with a six-month commitment and $7.99 per month if you sign on for a full year. Not sure yet? You can try Fight Pass for a week for free—and now would be a good time to cash in on that offer.

I can’t stress this enough: UFC Fight Pass will not allow you to live stream Khabib vs. McGregor or any of the PPV portion of the event. It does, however, offer a lot of behind-the-scenes footage, including a three-part “Embedded” vlog series and the UFC 229 press conference.

UFC Fight Pass can be streamed via Roku, Apple TV, Google Chromecast, Amazon Fire Stick and Amazon Fire TV, Xbox One, iOS and Android devices.
