UFC 231: Holloway vs. Ortega is going to take place this Saturday, December 8, and you have more than one way to watch the event. You have a FireStick option and Kodi, and we’re going to tell you how you can use both to watch the PPV.
If you’re an Amazon Fire TV or FireStick owner, you can watch the UFC 231 PPV live online via the official UFC app for FireStick. The application runs smoothly on the Firestick and allows you to watch the matches you thought you had no chance of watching. The downside of it all is that due to geo-restrictions the app might not be available to all users in different countries. For example, UFC fans residing in the UK won’t be able to watch Holloway vs. Ortega. If you want to bypass geo-restrictions and access UFC.TV anywhere in the world on your FireStick, you need to use a VPN. This is why a VPN is a vital tool for your streaming experience. This is what a VPN can do:
Ultimate Privacy: Secure your online activities and protect your privacy.
Unblock Geo-restricted Apps and Kodi Add-ons: There are a lot of FireStick apps and Kodi add-ons that you can only make use of in specific areas. But, with a VPN you can bypass regional restrictions.
VPN Applications: Make use of user-friendly VPN apps on PC, Mac, Android, iOS, and FireStick.
Bypass ISP Throttling: Prevent the ISPs from throttling your Internet speed.
ExpressVPN is one of the best VPNs you can use on your FireStick. Actually, it’s one of the few VPN providers that have a VPN app compatible with Amazon Fire TV Sticks. For more information, read our reviewed list of the best FireStick VPNs in 2018 below.
Previously, there used to be a UFC Fight Pass addon for Kodi, but that plugin doesn’t work anymore. As far as the official Kodi repository is concerned, there is only one addon you can use to watch UFC 231, and that is the DAZN Kodi addon. Bear in mind, you need a valid DAZN account in order to use this particular addon. Plus, DAZN offers a free 30-day trial, which is pretty helpful for those who take time to make a decision. If you want the DAZN Kodi addon to work seamlessly, you need to update your Kodi app to 18 Leia first. Here is how you set the DAZN Kodi addon up:
From the Kodi home screen, select Addons -> My Addons.
Scroll down and click on Videoplayer InputStream.
Make sure that both InputStream Adaptive and RTMP Input are enabled.
Now go back to the Kodi homescreen, select ‘Addons’ and click on the Package Installer Icon at the top left corner.
From there, click on ‘Install from Repository’ -> Kodi Add-on Repository.
Select DAZN and install it.
From the Kodi home screen, choose ‘Videos’ -> ‘Addons’ -> DAZN.
Although DAZN might be available in USA, Canada, Italy, Japan, and Switzerland, they only have UFC broadcasting rights in Germany and Austria. This means you need a VPN to unblock the German DAZN version on your Kodi. To achieve that, you need a VPN like ExpressVPN. Read our in-depth review to learn which VPNs are best for Kodi.
How to Watch Holloway vs. Ortega for Free Online?
People are always interested in free content, and that applies to MMA events. Many would even try to watch them live via pirated streams online. However, what I know is that there are no legal ways to watch UFC events for free. In fact, most of these websites are filled with ads and malware, and visiting them might actually harm your device. Furthermore, streaming PPV events using these websites is illegal in almost every country around the world. We advise you not to make use of pirated streams no matter how badly you want to watch the event.
