    Almost every recent main event is blocked on fight pass, makes me wonder why I bought it. Don't need to see backstage interviews with Ronda Rousey's mom.

    Is there a legitimate way to view fight nights on the net if you miss them live? I don't want to deal with the whole torrent/vpn nonsense.

    Depends where in the world you are. I'm in New Zealand and I get pretty much everything available apart from the newest PPV. PPV is usually available 3 months after it first airs, but sometimes that changes. UFC 189 only took a month or so to become available.

    If it's blocked for you, then just use a VPN. Should work.

    I'm okay with buying the paperview, but it's the fight nights that are blocked. I'm trying with Ivacy but no go.

    I don't even have a television anymore so it's pretty frustrating. Fox .. bleh.

    Yeah, I still have to pay to watch PPV live.

    But I get all the Fight Nights (Fox, FS1 etc) free and live too.

    I'd recommend investigating VPN options. You should be able to get around the geo-blocking without too much hassle.

    If they have a tv deal to air it in your area it's blacked out on the stream like every other sports streaming service.

    Pix is airing the Mets game today so I can't watch it on mlb.tv

    Both are pretty bad, but at least Sherdog has more values than that joke Fight Pass. What's the point of paying for service when they don't let you watch the fights if you're from certain countries? LOL!

    That's why people stream. It's free, you see the fight right away without any restrictions.

    And yes, it's legal to stream, because there is no law against watching something for free.

    It's only illegal to upload those streams to make profits.

    pay to watch entire backlog in hd, or pay to talk about fights that you watch.

    Btw, you can post all you want without paying, but for the extra cost you can post polls!

    Only one makes sense

    LOL at TS.

    Dude, all PPV cards are blocked for 60 days and then put on FP for free. That's much better than the previous 6 month window.

    Fox cards are blocked too cuz why the fuck would advertisers buy ads on Fox if they were letting mother fuckers watch those cards ad-free on Fight Pass?

    Fight Pass is a very good deal. Anybody who disagrees is a cheap mother fucker.

    They're not free if they are subscription based .

    You're one of the few people I have heard that believe its worth the purchase price, glad you enjoy it.

    I know you said you don't like torrents but honestly it is the best way, I will help you.

    1.) Go to www.bittorrent.com. download and install the program.

    2.) Then go to https://kat.cr/ (kickass torrents) use the search engine to find the Fight Night you want. Click on your selection.

    3.) click the picture that looks like a magnet.

    4.) bittorrent will launch and download your selection.

    5.) solved. you're welcome.

    LOL, check out this Zuffa shill...

    Fight Pass is a piece of crap deal!

    I get more with Netflix at just $7.99 without any of this restriction crap.

    Why would anyone want to pay $10 for Fight Pass just so they have to wait 2 freakin months to watch an old fight?

    Use the $10 to pay for Netflix and then stream the fight!
