If you're a fan of the UFC or mixed martial arts in general, you have to see UFC 269. This marquee matchup features lightweight champ Charles “Do Bronx” Oliveira (31-8-0, 1NC) taking on Dustin “The Diamond” Poirier (28-6-0, 1NC). Poirier was last seen defeating Conor McGregor by technical knockout in July, but Oliveira is still the champ until proven otherwise.
Adding to the excitement of this explosive event, you'll also see a Women's Bantamweight Championship bout between Amanda “The Lioness” Nunes (21-4-0) and Julianna “The Venezuelan Vixen” Peña (11-4-0) before Oliveira and Poirier enter the octagon. With 13 wins by knockout, Nunes is a force to be reckoned with, but Peña is here to play following her submission defeat of Sara McMann back in January.

How to Watch UFC 269: Oliveira vs. Poirier
This is where we usually list a bunch of streaming services that will allow you to watch the program in question. But for this fight, the list is going to be mighty short. That’s because there’s only one service that lets you watch UFC 269 and Oliveira vs. Poirer: ESPN Plus.
That’s right: An ESPN Plus subscription is the only way you’ll be able to watch UFC 269. But even then, you’ll still need to give UFC and ESPN Plus more of your money if you want to see the main card matches. Those are pay-per-view exclusives, and you’ll need to pay $69.99 if you already have an ESPN Plus subscription. What if you don’t already subscribe to ESPN Plus? In that case, you can pay $89.99 and get both UFC 269 and a full year’s subscription, which we think is a pretty good deal. It’s also available to ESPN Plus customers who currently pay for a monthly plan. That monthly plan costs $6.99 per month, which means you’ll save a ton of money if you buy the annual plan and UFC 269 at the same time.
If you just want to watch the preliminary matches, all you need is an ESPN Plus subscription. But we’re guessing most diehard UFC fans will want to see the stacked lineup on the main card.
