Did you get talked into going to watch your son’s baseball game tonight and you won’t be home to see UFC 173? Renan Barao has been unstoppable lately and next up for the untouchable champ is TJ Dillashaw who is Urijah Faber’s teammate. Daniel Cormier will look to solidify his statsu as a #1 contender if he can get by Dan Henderson in the co-main event. It will be a fun show. Luckily for all of the poor UFC fans out there there are some places to see the show online if you know where to look.
The main card will feature champion Renan Barao vs. T.J. Dillashaw for the UFC bantamweight title, Daniel Cormier vs. Dan Henderson, Jake Ellenberger vs. Robbie Lawler, Takeya Mizugaki vs. Francisco Rivera, and James Krause vs. former WEC champ Jamie Varner in the first fight on pay per view.
The undercard of the show will be shown live and for free on Fox Sports 1. Fox Sports 1 will show Michael Chiesa vs. Francisco Trinaldo, Tony Ferguson vs. Katsunori Kikuno, Chico Camus vs. Chris Holdsworth, and Mitch Clarke vs. Al Iaquinta from TUF.

With this huge lightweight title grudge match tonight you will not want to miss out on the show. It’s been building ever since Pettis landed the ‘Showtime Kick’ on Henderson two and a half years ago and you know Henderson will be ready for redemption.
You can order the show on your computer by purchasing it at www.ufc.tv. The event only costs $44.99.
If you decide to order the pay per view there you can even watch it on smart phones such as Androids and iPhones by downloading the UFC.tv app from the app store on your device.
There are other sites that have live streams. Typically they go down during the fights and that always sucks. Ordering straight from the UFC is the best way to see the event live without any interruptions.
You could go to a bar around town such as Hooters or Buffalo Wild Wings if you can find a place to sit. They usually fill up pretty quickly for big pay per views such as this one. If all else fails you can catch the highlights on Youtube or other sites such as ESPN or FoxSports.
Be sure to turn your phone off and stay off of Facebook an Twitter. If there is a big upset or vicious knockout you know your friends will be texting you about what went down in Las Vegas.
