For a sport that started out as a bit of a circus, pitting fighters from different martial arts backgrounds against each other, UFC has developed into a fully-fledged super promotion. There are several ways to stream the biggest fights Live or On Demand in Australia. Here we are going to give you the lowdown on all the options and more.

How to watch UFC in Australia
UFC is available in Australia via Fox Sports (Foxtel/Kayo) and Main Event. There are several ways to watch Fox Sports and Main Event in Australia, so you never need to miss a round of the action, live and direct.
All of these sports streaming options offer their own unique perks for both occasional and die-hard UFC fans. You can subscribe to long-term or short-term contracts, or simply pay a one-off fee for a specific fight. Check out everything you need to know and more below.
Stream UFC live on Kayo
A great option for watching Live and On Demand UFC is Kayo Sports. As they offer everything Fox Sports, Kayo gives you access to international fights from home and abroad. You can also pay for select Main Event PPVs through Kayo featuring the likes of Conor McGregor and Jon Jones for an added fee. Kayo offer a free 14-day trial offer so that you can check out their UFC Fight Night content without paying a cent.

If you like the idea of getting access to the entire Foxtel TV service without cable or satellite installation, then Foxtel Now is the option for you. Foxtel Now offers a range of streaming services for watching over 50 live sports including UFC, with the option of buying Main Event PPVs. Select UFC Fight Night events are included with the Foxtel Now free trial.
Kayo from Telstra UFC live stream
Telstra customers can get UFC access on the cheap with a Kayo from Telstra offer. This service offers all the same sports content available with a standard Kayo subscription, as well as the choice to buy select PPV fights via Main Event. The key difference is you only pay $15 per month for a Basic Plan, and $25 per month for the Premium Plan. Both of these offers include logins for the Kayo app. Main Event PPV costs are not included in your subscription.

Stream UFC replays on demand
With fights taking place in different time zones around the world, UFC can be difficult to watch Live without staying up until the early hours for Australians. Even when fights do go out live at a good time, you may be busy socialising or working, so other options are a must.
Thanks to On Demand replays you can just watch fights as if they were going out live the second you press play. Apps like Kayo also allow you to watch events with the ‘No Spoilers’ feature, which ensures you don’t see any results before you’ve watched every round at an appropriate time. Main Event also gives you exclusive full replays of fights for up to a week after the fight goes out live.
How to stream UFC for free
A great way to watch (select) UFC fights, including PPV events that have gone out live only weeks previously, is with a free trial. In Australia, you can get free trials for watching UFC with both Kayo and Foxtel Now. Why not check out if Kayo is worth it with a free trial today and watch the likes of Jon Jones, The Korean Zombie and Rob Whittaker on demand.
Most free trials are available to new and returning customers. Even though there is no trial available with Telstra, they do offer alternative discounts and reduced costs per month for their Kayo and Foxtel Now services.

Best fighters in UFC
UFC is full of world-class talent, but there are a few fighters that demand our attention every time they step into the Octagon. Check them out below.
‘The Notorious’ is the biggest name in UFC. He is brash, mouthy and never backs down from a fight. He may not be as effective at knocking out his opponents as he was at the beginning of his career, but his fights are still just as enthralling.
Jon Jones has had his fair share of controversies over the years, including multiple bans for use of recreational drugs. But what he lacks in self-control out of the Octagon, he certainly makes up for in it. He is a technically gifted fighter for such a big man and still remains unbeaten.
Australian MMA master Rob Whittaker has previously held the Middleweight strap and is still a big name within the promotion. He is only 30 years old and could be considered to be entering the prime of his career. He regularly appears on UFC Fight Night events as well as Pay Per View specials.
Best NBN plans for streaming UFC
Telstra’s latest NBN plans are a great way to stream UFC without worrying about how much data you use. A 500GB Data ($75/mth) plan will give you speeds of up to 25Mbps, whilst the more complete Premium Internet + Unlimited Data (from $90/mth) plan provides speeds up to 100Mbps.
New and switching customers signing up for Telstra Broadband service today can also make big savings when signing up online, as the standard $99 connection fee is waived. Once you’ve signed up you can tailor your plan by choosing the option that works for the picture quality you desire.
