In this post, I will show you how to watch UFC on firestick. The guide provided here works across all the Amazon Fire TV devices including firestick 4k and fire TV cube.
Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is one of the major MMA sports brands that has caught the attention of millions worldwide. It features the highest-level fighters, and so far it has been very successful for UFC in terms of legendary fights and viewership.
Following the rapid growth of online streaming services, UFC has also moved its broadcasting and pay-per-view business online. Fans can now finally cut the cord without any doubt.
As we have recently stepped to a new decade, it is also time for the major UFC event of this year, UFC 249: Tony Ferguson vs. Justin Gaethje. The match takes place on the 18th of April, and fans are definitely not going to miss it live.
If you own a Firestick, then carry on reading this article to learn how you can watch UFC on firestick. We have listed a couple of methods below.
Watching the UFC Fight With VPN
Some of you are already known to VPN which stands for Virtual Private Network. It is a highly recommended tool if you watch Live streaming media content using the internet on a regular basis. VPN performs a couple of important functions like it encrypts your input data and find a direct path to the server for faster and secure results. VPN gives you a completely different online identity with a new IP address to prevent your internet service provider from monitoring what you are doing on the internet.
Apart from these, it also has some other benefits like overcoming geo-restrictions and avoiding copyright infringement. Geo-restrictions have always been a major frustration for streamers. If you are outside the US, some streaming services and pay-per-view events may not be available in your region.
You can jump across the fences by using a VPN, which allows you to change your country anywhere you want virtually. At the same time, it protects your network from being hijacked or snooped by cybercriminals. I personally use IPVanish VPN on my all streaming device.
In order to unblock UFC or other streaming services, simply connect to a server in the United States So, Make sure you install IPVanish VPN before you start streaming UFC on firestick.
