The UFC is headed to the Lone Star State. On February 12th, Houston will host UFC 271. The main fight card features middleweight champ Israel “The Last Stylebender” Adesanya (21-1-0) taking on a challenge from Robert “The Reaper” Whittaker (24-5-0). In their last match in October 2019, Adesanya defeated Whittaker by knockout. It's not too surprising, though, as Adesanya has never lost a bout at the middleweight level.

How to Watch UFC 271: Adesanya vs. Whittaker
If you want to catch the main card action of UFC 271 through livestreaming, then you only have one option: ESPN Plus. Check out all the details of this stream below:
ESPN Plus is your key to unlocking UFC 271. But consider it more of an appetizer than a main course. That’s because the regular $6.99 monthly subscription alone isn’t enough to access UFC 271. After you subscribe, you’ll also need to pay a $74.99 pay-per-view fee specifically to watch the UFC 271 main card. All in all, it's not a bad deal, especially if you get a few friends to chip in, in exchange for watching it on your big screen.
If you’re looking for both UFC 271 and a long-term subscription to ESPN Plus, there’s another deal worth mentioning: For $99.98, you can purchase both UFC 271 and an annual subscription to ESPN Plus. In that case, you can pay $99.98 and get both UFC 271 and a full year’s subscription. Now, that’s a significant savings over simply paying for ESPN Plus on a monthly basis.
Best of all, you can keep streaming all kinds of sports content from basketball to football and beyond on ESPN Plus even after the fight is over. Next time a UFC Fight Night or event comes up, you will also already be prepped and ready.
