UFC is setting up shop for the first time in South Carolina as the Bon Secours Wellness Arena in Greenville hosts UFC Fight Night 154 on June 22. The main event won’t leave Palmetto State residents disappointed: Featherweights Renato Moicano (13–2–1) and Chan Sung Jung (14–5) will face off, with both looking to bounce back from recent defeats.
Event attendees and viewers alike will get to see other intriguing match-ups down the card, too. Bantamweights John Lineker (31–9) and Rob Font (16–4) co-headline, and relative UFC newcomer featherweights Dan Ige (11-2) and Kevin Aguilar (16-1) do battle to see who can continue to spring up the competition’s rankings. It’s a deep line-up of fights that all fans can enjoy. And fortunately for those who will be streaming all of the action from home, it’ll be easily accessible.

For UFC fans, there’s only one streaming service that will provide the mixed-martial arts coverage they crave: ESPN+. UFC aficionados who subscribe to ESPN+ gain an unparalleled access to MMA bouts and can binge on other premium ESPN content.
What prompted the current arrangement? In May 2018, ESPN inked a $1.5 billion deal with UFC to carry 30 Fight Nights, with the company selecting 20 of those events to run on ESPN+, including Fight Night 154. ESPN and UFC then extended their partnership in January 2019 to make ESPN the home of all UFC pay-per-view events, which allows active ESPN+ users to purchase any PPV UFC event for $59.99 per event. UFC fans who don’t have an ESPN+ account but wish to subscribe can gain a year’s worth of the streaming service with one $79.99 PPV purchase. That’s a pretty sweet deal.
Of course, the self-described worldwide leader in sports makes subscribing to ESPN+ worth it beyond its extensive UFC coverage. ESPN+ subscribers can watch 180 out-of-market MLS matches, MLB games, and tons of college sports action, among other things. Subscribers can also access ESPN’s entire library of its acclaimed 30 for 30 documentary series—all for $4.99 per month or $49.99 for the entire year.
ESPN+ works as an extension of the ESPN app, unlocking exclusive features and live events. All you have to do is download the app on your streaming device of choice (see the full list above) and subscribe. If your cable or live TV streaming package also includes ESPN2, you’ll be able to watch the prelims and the main event all from one convenient location.
Moicano vs. Jung: Why it matters
At Chan Sung Jung’s last fight at UFC Fight Night 139 in November 2018, he ended up on the receiving end of one of the gnarliest and most unfortunate finishes of all time. With one second left, Yair “Pantera” Rodriguez dropped Jung with an elbow, causing Jung to crumble like a pile of laundry quickly and sloppily being poured from a hamper. Jung was a moment away from being scored by the judges as the winner. The sport can be cruel like that sometimes, and because of Jung’s sparse fighting history since his UFC introduction in 2011 (he’s only fought six times in eight years), his current narrative’s set.

UFC Fight Night 154 could be a career-changer for Jung. In Greenville, he’ll take on no.5-ranked featherweight Renato Moicano, which provides him a quality opponent in order to right his path. It won’t be easy, of course: Moicano’s 5-2 since his UFC debut in 2014, including a Performance of the Night showing during his last win, which occurred at UFC 227 in August 2018. Moicano’s an accurate striker whose résumé suggests he bunkers down for long, grueling bouts before aiming to submit his opponents with rear-naked chokes. Both fighters are fairly evenly matched, but Jung will have to find a way to wear down Moicano as much as he can. His career could depend on it.
