Join us Saturday, July 2nd, 2022, for a LIVE ‘radio style’ play-by-play broadcast in the player above of the UFC 276 PPV (pay-per-view) MAIN CARD, with LIVE updates, commentary, results & reactions as the highlight of International Fight Week is here; which will begin at 10/7PM ETPT, around the start of the Main Card opener between Pedro Munhoz vs. Sean O’Malley. The event is being simulcast in English & Spanish on ESPN+ from the T—Mobile Arena, in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Throughout the telecast, our host, Matt Ryan, & co-host Brendan Sokler, will bring you all of the face-punching goodness the UFC can provide...along with the completely legal and totally not real person Dan A. White. The team will be streaming LIVE from the YELLiNG! studios inside the diner from the Series Finale of The Sopranos. Please join us and be sure to subscribe to Combat Culture on YouTube while you are there.
The UFC is showcasing a World Championship Doubleheader this weekend at their UFC 276 PPV event. So, we get two title fights, including a trilogy but that oughta be a barn-burner.
Israel Adesanya is closely becoming the Mike Tyson of our generation at 185 pounds, because no matter if it’s a (technical) knockout or a decision, you’re tuning into the ESPN+-streamed show just to see what the heck he does. And while Jared Cannonier is a bad dude and you’ll never not hear anyone say or write that he’s entering a completely different level in “Sin City.”
If this were “Money In The Bank” across the street at MGM Grand (why WWE decided to run against International Fight Week in the same city is beyond us), we’d see Cannonier gain some sort of advantage or have Adesanya come in with some sort of glaring weakness or injury because you need to nerf the Anime nerd with death in his hands and feet to give “Killa Gorilla” some hope before the bell rang.
But, UFC is not WWE and, to our understanding, these fights are not predetermined. So, shout out to everyone who thinks every mixed martial arts (MMA) fight is a work, you give us energy.
This main event, alongside an Alexander Volkanovski vs. Max Holloway trilogy bout banger at 145 pounds and Sean O’Malley looking like someone who sells you fake pot at Bonnaroo and the rest of this card, has us excited enough to shout at the television set along with you TONIGHT, starting 15 minutes before the PPV main card kicks off alongside Brendan Sokler, Stephanie Sottile moderating the chat and Olive being a fat baby and giving her thoughts throughout the event.
If not — or you’re just unable (or unwilling) to shell out $74.99US (for current subscribers) or whopping $88.98 plus tax (for the PPV and ESPN+ annual subscription deal), don’t worry, we got you covered. We’re going to call every moment of UFC 276’s PPV main card on our YouTube channel LIVE tonight at 10PM ET, bringing you as close to Vegas as we can from our New Jersey-based studio (video player embedded above for your convenience).
ALL THE GOODS ON UFC 276 LIVE STREAM INFO:
UFC 276 is exclusive to ESPN+, so if you’re looking to stream this event, non-ESPN+ subscribers will need to sign up for ESPN+ (monthly or annual) and then purchase UFC 276, as PPVs are only available to ESPN+ subscribers. If you’re already an ESPN+ subscriber, you can purchase UFC 276 for $74.99. ESPN also offers two bundle packages:
UFC 276 & The Disney Bundle: This package provides you with a $13.99/month subscription to ESPN+, Disney+, and Hulu (ad-supported) and UFC 276 ($74.99) for $88.98 plus tax. You can also purchase an ad-free Hulu version of the bundle for $19.99/month.
