Or, if you want to purchase them separately, you can first subscribe to a month of ESPN+ right here ($6.99 for ESPN+, or $13.99 for a bundle of ESPN+, Hulu and Disney+), then follow the below directions for existing ESPN+ subscribers.

However, with the amount of UFC (and other sports) content on ESPN+, most MMA fans are probably going to keep ESPN+ long-term, meaning the value of the bundle is the better way to go if you don’t already have ESPN+.

If You Have ESPN+

Current ESPN+ subscribers can buy the UFC 270 PPV by itself for $74.99 right here:

UFC 270 Preview

In addition to Ngannou and Gane, newly-crowned Flyweight champion Brandon Moreno and Deiveson Figueiredo will clash with the belt on the line. Still, all eyes will be on Ngannou, 35, and the 31-year-old Gane.

Ngannou will have a size advantage, as he came in at 257 pounds at Friday’s official weigh-in, while Gane tipped the scales a 247 pounds.

“In the past, I’ve fought for free,” Ngannou said leading up to the bout, via Sports Illustrated. “I’ve fought for 300 hundred euros, and I was so grateful for that and proud to do it. But I have reached a point where I know what I am worth. I want a new contract. I think I deserve more. I think my value is worth more than what it is currently on the contract. And I don’t care if people criticize me for that. I’ve been criticized before, like when I left my home country in Cameroon. People thought I was crazy. I was doing something bigger than people could understand. I am willing to stand up for my dreams and beliefs.”

Despite the size disadvantage, Gane could very well wear Ngannou down if he sticks around long enough, Gane’s technique is excellent and arguably superior to Ngannou’s, and he knows what a huge opportunity he has in front of him.

“I’ve got a lot of respect for him,” Gane told SI. “He’s come so far and accomplished a lot. I have a lot of respect for that, but this is a big opportunity for me. I’ll be ready.”

“I want to be the best fighter in the world,” Gane added. “I need to win this fight to do that. I’m only focused entirely on that.”
