This weekend, the Dublin-born Conor McGregor will be returning to the Octagon on Fight Island in Abu Dhabi for UFC 257, after lying dormant for 12 months–and is vowing to pull off a “masterpiece” in his rematch with US lightweight Dustin Poirier.
Trash talking aside, and though their last fight in 2014 was a first-round knockout by the scandal-prone McGregor, things could be very different this time. Poirier is currently the #2 Lightweight and has been awarded Fight of the Night winner seven times—so he’s ready for his close-up.
ESPN+ will be showing the anticipated Main Card of UFC 257 on Saturday, January 23 at 10pm ET for the price of $69.99. But if you’re a sports fan, this could also be the perfect time to consider the other exclusive content on this streaming channel.
Soccer fans will be thrilled to access all the major leagues, including MLS, Premier League and Champions League. The FA Cup can only be found on ESPN+ and you are not going to want to miss Manchester United battle Liverpool Sunday, January 24 at 12pm ET (Round 5 begins on February 10). In addition, the last 16 teams in the Spanish knockout competition, the Copa del Ray, also begin play on January 27—where third division underdog teams have a chance to win against giants like Barcelona.
Waiting for some golf? You’re in luck. The PGA Tour is making its return to ESPN+ on January 30.
But best of all, if you’re ready to subscribe, you can even please the non-sports fans in your household and take advantage of The Disney Bundle including Disney+, Hulu (ad supported), and ESPN+ for a total of $12.99 per month (over 25 percent savings compared to subscribing to each product individually). So, yeah, you can watch Dustin “The Diamond” Poirier vs.” The Notorious” Conor McGregor II, then switch over to The Mandalorian. Though, we’re pretty sure who would win if Baby Yoda got in the UFC ring.
