Former two division UFC champion Conor McGregor faces Donald Cerrone next month in the main event of UFC 246.
MMA fans who are expecting to pay the usual $59.99 for the event are going to be paying a little extra, as UFC pay-per-view prices are going to be raised to $64.99. The $64.99 price point was where UFC pay-per-views were priced at until March of this year, where they were dropped to $59.99.
“ESPN+ is an incredible value to UFC fans, and this price change represents a return to the price that UFC fans traditionally paid, prior to ESPN+ decreasing the price for pay-per-view events for most of 2019,” an ESPN+ spokesperson told MMA Junkie.
The price change also affects the UFC/ESPN+ new subscriber deal, which will move from $79.98 to $84.98. The deal saw new subscribers get a year of ESPN+ and a UFC pay-per-view (depending on which event the package was ordered before) for $79.98, everything about the package remains the same, just the price point has changed.
While an ESPN+ spokesperson has commented on the price change, no statement has been issued by the UFC at this time.
