Conor McGregor is finally getting his shot at UFC gold. If McGregor can beat Chad Mendes in Las Vegas he promises to take the belt back to Ireland for his fans. Mendes however, has been promising to finish “Notorious” in the middle of the octagon. The show is loaded from top to bottom and features two title fights.
The pay per view is pretty expensive but 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 pay per view card will feature Conor McGregor vs. Chad Mendes for the interim featherweight title, Robbie Lawler vs. Rory MacDonald for the UFC welterweight title, Dennis Bermudez vs. Jeremy Stephens, Gunnar Nelson vs. Brandon Thatch and Thomas Almeida vs. Brad Pickett takes on Dustin Poirier will open the pay per view portion of the show.
The undercard for the show will be shown for free on UFC Fight Pass at 8 p.m. ET. They will show Neil Seery vs. Louis Smolka and Yosdenis Cedeno vs. Cody Pfister.
Fox Sports 1 will show Matt Brown vs. Tim Means, Alex Garcia vs. Mike Swick, John Howard vs. Cathal Pendred and Henry Briones vs. Cody Garbrandt. They could also broadcast some of the fights that aired earlier on FightPass if the fights go quickly with some early knockouts or submissions. Sometimes you get to see one or two extra bouts depending on if there are some quick stoppages or not.
With these big title showdowns at UFC 189 and Matt Brown on the undercard this show will be awesome. It’s rare we get to see two guys who hate each other so much and they finally fight.
You can order the show on your computer by purchasing it on Apple TV or Roku. It’s also available on the PS3 or PS4. The event will be shown on the UFC Network in Peru, Argentina, Mexico, and most South American countries. In Japan it will air on WoWoW. Fox South East Asia will air the show in Malaysia, China, Macau, Hong Kong, Papau New Guinea, and Singapore. BT Sport 2 will air UFC 189 in Ireland. Abu Dhabi Sports 6 will show the pay per view in Lebanon, Palestine and most every other Middle East country.
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 some other shady sites that have live streams on them. However, they typically go down during the fights and that always stinks while you are watching. 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 and Twitter. When there is a big upset or vicious knockout you know your friends will be texting you about what went down in Las Vegas tonight.
