UFC 242: Will It Be Pay-Per-View Or PPV?

It’s been a while since I’ve bought a UFC newsletter. This one has me very interested though. With the “Ultimate Knockouts” series going on, I’m looking forward to see what they have in store for me. I’ve heard some good things so far and some not so good things, so I’m going to give you my two cents on the subject.

I recently saw a tweet by someone that mentioned the UFC242 PPV and how great it would be to watch us 242 there. Now, the UFC does have a pay-per-view event on Saturday nights, but it’s not often. Usually the “Moves to Die For” or “Unleashed” pay-per-view events are on Wednesdays or Fridays. They do have re-broadcasts of older shows though. So that’s something to keep in mind when you’re considering this.

But let me bring up another point before I go any further. If you really want to watch us 242 per fight card on Saturday night at Vegas Events center, I recommend that you go to the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino after the weigh-in. This is one of the only places where you can actually watch the fight card and get a live feed to your computer.


There is no way to watch us 242 online because it hasn’t happened yet. You can’t buy the tickets yet either. There is no shortage of people wanting to watch it though. This is all because it is a pay-per-view event. For fans of pay-per-view events it is always nice to have a full screen image at any time during the show.

The promotion for UFC 242 has been consistent across all platforms since it happened. It started out with Chinese media promoting it as being on their list of primetime shows for Saturday night. They promoted it on their local stations as well as several national channels including CCTV. The main event between light heavyweight champion Dong Guang and Korean Womens’ wrestling sensation Kimbo Slice II actually made it to YouTube, where it was promoted heavily.

As you may have guessed, UFC242 is scheduled to air live on pay-per-view following the weigh-in. This is why my advice to you is to find an outlet where you can watch the live fight night broadcast. Chances are it will be on the MMA channel or some other high profile channel that is exclusive to pay-per-view.

If you happen to miss the fight night coverage on pay-per-view you can still catch the highlights on the UFC 242 EP online. You can also use the UFC 242 app which is accessible from the Android app store. The app allows you to watch highlights on the go and even gives you the chance to buy tickets for the full fight night event. It is really nice having the option of buying tickets right on the spot, without having to wait until the broadcast comes on television.

Now it is back to the grind, UFC 242 is scheduled for take place on SATURDAY night. You should make sure you get the EP version so you can watch the entire thing, in HD. The previous broadcast was not in HD, so this should definitely put your mind at ease. I am expecting a huge attendance at the venue, as this is one of the bigger pay-per-view events of the year. The Abu Dhabi Sports Festival takes place during the same weekend of the PPV event. Be sure to keep up with all the action by tuning into UFC news every week.


We are nearing the weekend and I know my subscribers are dying to know when we will be getting the next update from our sources. Well, here it is, UFC 242 is officially underway and matches have been added to the main card. The next few weeks will see what goes on with the main card and we will be adding more to the mix. Right now the only fight officially confirmed is Sage Northcutt against Takeya Mizugaki in a light heavyweight bout.


Check out the UFC news on Facebook and prepare to have more announcements coming your way. There is still a lot that has to happen before kick off Saturday evening. One thing I am happy to see is that the match is being played on free TV, in India. This is a great opportunity to get the exposure of Indian MMA on PPV. If you were to miss out on this you would probably never watch another MMA fight in the country ever again. This is a very good thing for UFC fans in India.

The app is going to launch soon, so stay tuned to my blog for more information. I am also working on creating an app for Android devices and will have that ready in a couple of weeks. So stay tuned to all the latest updates and get your UFC 242 subscription started soon. The app will allow you to pay through your android device using your PayPal account, which means you can pre-book your tickets, make changes and track your stats.
