How to stream UFC Fight Night 146 for free

UFC - Ultimate Fighting Championship

Derrick Lewis and Junior dos Santos are set to collide.

Derrick Lewis is looking for redemption. After being choked out by heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier in the main event at UFC 230 in November, the so-called “Black Beast” will face Junior dos Santos at UFC Fight Night 146. It’s a heavyweight matchup worthy of a pay-per-view event, but you can actually watch it for free.

After signing a massive, five-year deal last year, ESPN is now home to UFC Fight Night events, most of which broadcast exclusively on the network’s new streaming service, ESPN+, which you can try out with a free one-week trial.

Dos Santos (20-5-0), a former UFC heavyweight champion with victories notched against Cain Velasquez, Shane Corwin, and more, holds an advantage by most statistical measures. But one should never underestimate Lewis (21-6-0, 1NC), who has the ability to stop fights with sheer blunt-force trauma. The main event card will also feature Elizeu Zaleski dos Santos vs. Curtis Millender in a welterweight bout. In the prelims, former UFC Women’s Featherweight Championship challenger Yana Kunitskaya faces Marion Reneau in a bout that was originally scheduled for UFC 233.

Here’s everything you need to know to watch the UFC Fight Night 146 live stream from Wichita, Kansas, for free.
