Watch UFC Live
The UFC airs close to 50 events a year meaning there's an event almost every week. Most events will air on TSN, especially the regular UFC Fight Night Cards.
The numbered events are on PPV, but they traditionally come with four-fight preliminary cards, which are just as good as the regular TV cards.
While the UFC saves its best fights for its PPVs, the promotion continues to grow exciting fighters and up-and-coming stars. Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov also fought on TV before they became box office superstars. The UFC promotes the next generation of talent so more viewers, including you, can watch them and get to know them before it's even cool.
But not all cards are made equal. There are usually two types of free TV cards: ESPN+ cards and ESPN cards. While both air on TSN, the ESPN+ cards are six-fight main cards that have a decent level of talent. They usually take place in smaller cities and have a little bit of hype. The ESPN cards are four-fight main cards and are almost as good as PPV cards. These get a solid amount of hype and take place in more prominent cities.
