UFC 230 live stream: How to watch Cormier vs. Lewis online

If you’ve cut the cord, there are still a few ways you can watch UFC 230 online, but no matter which one you select, it’s always the same price: $54.99 (for standard definition) or $64.99 (HD). It’s also worth noting the following options apply only to the main event PPV itself. To watch the preliminary bouts, you’ll need access to UFC’s Fight Pass and FS1 (both covered below). Here’s everything you need to know to live stream UFC 230.

Sling TV is the only live TV streaming service that lets you order UFC PPV events. You do have to either be an existing Sling TV customer (you can sign-up for a free seven-day trial here) or a previous Sling TV customer to order UFC 230. But with packages that start at just $25 per month, there’s a lot to love about Sling TV. Just look at the channels you’ll get with Sling Blue (below). You’ll get FS1, so you can watch the prelims, in addition to NFL Network, NBCSN, FX, Fox Sports, and plenty more. To get ESPN channels, you’ll need to upgrade to Sling Orange + Blue, which costs $40 per month, but that’s after your free seven-day trial. (Here’s a complete guide to Sling TV channels.)
