The price of a standalone UFC pay-per-view (PPV) event, available exclusively on ESPN+, has been changed from $69.99 to $74.99, with the ESPN+ PPV Package (which includes one UFC PPV event and one annual subscription) also increasing from $89.98 to $99.98.
The price hike comes just a few weeks ahead of the promotion’s return to the PPV market, which starts with UFC 270: “Ngannou vs. Gane” on Jan. 22 in Anaheim, Calif., pitting heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou against interim titleholder Ciryl Gane.

UFC moved its PPV programming to the ESPN+ digital network in early 2019, part of a landmark deal with the “Worldwide Leader in Sports” that is expected to last until 2025. Non-PPV “Fight Night” cards are typically split between ESPN and ESPN+, depending on the fight calendar, but PPV orders require a standalone purchase, as well as an existing subscription to ESPN+.
