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

I think fight pass is worth the $10 a month, it doesn't take long to get $10 worth of entertainment from it when you consider how much it costs to go out anywhere for a night out.

I live in the UK, so I get everything free here.

Fight Pass I believe is staying for international fans.

The guy that mentioned a VPN, I agree with doing that, but don't pay for one.

I'm using one for free and it sorts me right out.

How are you getting it free? With BT Sport you either pay £10 per month or £15 with Sky sports, admittedly way cheaper than our American friends pay. Am I missing something here? Any tip will be gladly accepted.

I use IPTV which works out at around £4 per month for all live sport events around the world, including 3 pm kick offs with no buffer at all (except Bruce on UFC fights) the down side is you cannot record anything that is on at an ungodly hour to suit the US TV channels.

We don't have ESPN+ in Canada, so nothing has really changed here for us - regarding fightpass - so I'll be keeping it!

In all honesty, it's peanuts. You can make a slight adjustment in your life and you should be able to afford an extra $10 a month without extra stress.

The VPN work around for fighpass still works to watch everything that's not a PPV. You can always find a solid free stream if you look around, but I'll continue to use the VPN/fighpass combo as I want to see everything in HD with pause and rewind. They did put a block on the VPN when they updated the fightpass system recently, but if you right click on the "unfortunately this service is unavailable using a vpn" message, select "inspect element Q" then right click on the line that says "<div id="dice-modal">" then select "delete node" it will remove the vpn block. Kind of a pain, but at least is all still works.
