If you are a fan of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), you probably know that UFC 222 will happen on Saturday, March 3rd, 2018 at 10 PM ET. The main fight will be between Cris Cyborg and Yana Kunitskaya for the Women’s UFC Featherweight world title. While Cris Cyborg is the current title holder, Kunitskaya will challenge her for the belt. The main event and the undercard will take place at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Though you can get the events in several different countries online, you could pay less and unblock any restrictions by connecting to a VPN.
UFC holds a Pay Per View (PPV) event virtually every month since the beginning. As you might have guessed, there have been many changes that have taken place since UFC 1. At that time, not many realized just how big it would become. If you told the general public in 1993 that it would one day be bigger than boxing, many would have thought you were crazy. However, the popularity of the sport continues to grow.
Why Use a VPN to Watch UFC 222?
Though you may have access to order UFC 222 through the UFC.TV website from a few different countries, not all of the prices are the same. As an example, the price to watch the event in the US is $59.99. However, you can pay half of that amount or less depending on the country you choose to connect to. By using Singapore, your cost is only $24.99. In Luxembourg, it would be $29.32. You may discover other countries have different rates, so it is worth the money you could save to test it out and see which offers the best price. If you live outside of one of the countries that offer the fight, connecting to a VPN will be your best way to enjoy it.
Another option you have to lessen the cost is to use the UFC Fight Pass. This will get you access to the preliminary fights and give you the ability to order the PPV event. Just like with the option above, it is definitely cheaper in other regions. If you are using the UFC Fight Pass from one of the other regions, make sure to connect to a server in that country.
Do you plan on watching the big event from your dorm or at work? If so be aware that many colleges and companies have network restrictions that could block you from accessing the fights. In most cases a VPN will help you get around these restrictions by encrypting your connection. This could be the difference between enjoying a night of UFC action and being greeted by an unwanted message stating that the website or streaming service is blocked.
