I've loved FP since it started but with ESPN+ getting all the fight-night type cards, why would I keep it? I love having access to the grappling events and UFC library, but those are just a bonus. I got FP for the fight-night cards. I haven't heard of them decreasing the price even though there will be so much less content.

Will you be keeping FP? I imagine there will be a mass exodus.

I will be keeping it. I’m in the same boat as you. Got it for the FP-only events. Because of my work schedule (and having the same days off as the not-so-mma-loving wifey) I just don’t get to watch all the content I would like to. But at $10 a month I figured I’ll just hang on to it. I do believe that with fights moving to ESPN+, Fightpass will have to step up their content with other promotions and combat sporting events. Sad part is I will probably have FP & ESPN+.....

I've said this before but I'm still amazed that more people don't use the VPN workaround for fightpass. If you have your VPN logged in though a country that doesn't have broadcast rights to the event (I always use Turkey), then you can watch every fight of every event (except PPVs) on Fightpass. $2/month for VPN and $7/month for Fightpass (paying the year in advance), is $9 that brings me more entertainment than cable ever has. Add the fact that you can torrent freely with a VPN and that $2/month actually saves me thousands every year. Get a VPN service, you're a fool if dont.

So you're saying with this VPN you won't need ESPN+? I suppose there hasn't been an event yet so we can't be 100% sure.

If you're a fan of the Eddie Bravo Invitational and Polaris Jiu-Jitsu, you should keep it. I would also keep it if you enjoy watching old UFC and Pride FC events and fights.

Or you can download Mobdro or some other free live tv app and stream it for free everytime. My fire stick came preloaded with numerous apps that have enabled me to watch every event (along with any movie) for free.

Just got my 7 day free trial for ESPN+. $4.99/mo. isn't that bad. Or $49.99/yr.

No FightPass for me. If i want to watch an old fight that bad there's ways.

Ppv will show fight pass prelims
Only cards to have fight pass prelims seems to be ppv only
