How to watch UFC fight online with a VPN? [TUTORIAL]

I use a VPN are free. I can watch all the fights live but also the replays of the UFC season.

In this article, I will show you 2 foreign channels that broadcast UFC fights live. To see them, you will have to use a VPN and I will detail all the steps.

As a VPN, I recommend Cyberghost which will allow you to watch Kijk or MatchTV which streams all UFC events. Moreover, Cyberghost is one of the only VPNs to have servers in Russia - something mandatory to unblock MatchTV. The video quality will be excellent and there will be no lags.

1) How to Watch UFC live on Kijk?

Kijk is a Dutch channel that broadcasts a lot of sports competitions like UFC. I showed you how to watch this channel outside the Netherlands some time ago (in this article).

Let's look again at how to use CyberghostVPN to watch UFC on Kijk:

Step 1: Install CyberghostVPN on your device.

Cyberghost has an app for just about every device: Windows/Mac/Linux computer, Android/iOS smartphone and tablets, and even SmartTV. 

With just one account, you will be able to use this VPN on 7 devices at the same time and you can easily share your account with your family.

This link offers a substantial discount on Cyberghost. You will then receive an email to install the app on your device.

Once opened the interface looks like this (it is the same interface for all devices):

Step 2: Connect CyberghostVPN to the Netherlands.

Now simply search for "Netherlands" (Kijk's home country) in the search bar and double-click on the first result to log in.

Once connected Cyberghost will indicate that the connection is established. You will now be detected by Kijk in the Netherlands.

Step 3: Go to the Kijk website to see the live stream.

Now it's time to go to the Kijk website. On the homepage, you will normally have the fight you want to see displayed.

If not, go to "Programma's" and click on "U". The UFC category will appear and by clicking on it you will be able to see a live fight if there is one.

Once you're done watching the fight, you can leave Kijk and return to Cyberghost to disconnect the VPN.

Now you know what to do to watch the next fight. By the way, the next long-awaited fight Ngannou - Gane will be broadcast there! 

2) How to Watch UFC live on MatchTV?

MatchTV is a Russian channel that also broadcasts UFC fights on its website. The live stream is only available for people who are in Russia but still with the help of CyberghostVPN, you will be able to unblock the website and watch the UFC.

Again, MatchTV also broadcasts many other sports from soccer to ice hockey. So if you're a sports fan, this channel will definitely please you!

To watch the UFC on MatchTV we use the same method as with Kijk :

Step 1: Install CyberghostVPN

Cyberghost is one of the only VPNs with servers in Russia. So it's perfect for MatchTV because we need to connect in Russia to watch the live stream of the channel.

Step 2: Connect to Russia

To achieve this, type "Russia" in the Cyberghost search bar and double-click on Russia. You will then be connected and can proceed to the next and final step.

Step 3: Watch the MatchTV live stream

By going to this page, you will be able to access the MatchTV live stream directly. The live broadcast will be in very good quality and you will be able to put it on full screen. The comments will be in Russian.

Another option: UFC Fight Pass

Finally, I wanted to introduce you to the UFC Fight Pass which is the ultimate solution to watch the UFC. 

The Fight Pass is the UFC's online digital streaming service that allows you to watch over 30 UFC events per year for 85$/year

The problem with the UFC Fight Pass is that it only broadcasts the so-called "early prelims" and to see the other fights, including the most important ones, you will have to buy the PPV (pay-per-view) of the fight. 

For example, for the Nagannou - Kane fight, even if you have the UFC Fight Pass, you will have to take the Pay-per-view in addition to watch the fight… the solution that seemed to be economical is not at all. That's why I wouldn't recommend this pass.


I have presented you several solutions to watch the UFC live, it's up to you to choose the one that suits you best. You have a lot of choices.

Personally, I watch UFC on Kijk or Match TV with CyberghostVPN. It's my favorite method because it's the cheapest (I have the yearly Cyberghost subscription).

And this solution is not limited to the UFC. I can watch all the sports events I want like the Champions League or the Premier League. I can also connect in Belgium to watch RTBF and see live Formula 1. There are lots of options like that… Anyway, if you are a sports fan like me, in my opinion, this is the best solution.
