UFC 218 will go down as arguably one of the most exciting pay-per-views of the year for the promotion.
Fans who didn’t get a chance to order the pay-per-view or illegally stream it online will now get a chance to watch it for free on Fox Sports 1 this Christmas Eve.
Since the replay is only scheduled for 90 minutes, there is no word yet on which fights from the pay-per-view card will air that night.
Here is the full pay-per-view card for UFC 218:
UFC Featherweight Title Fight
Max Holloway (C) vs. Jose Aldo
Francis Ngannou vs. Alistair Overeem
Henry Cejudo vs. Sergio Pettis
Eddie Alvarez vs. Justin Gaethje
Tecia Torres vs. Michelle Waterson
Fox and the UFC did a similar thing last year with UFC 206, which drew incredible ratings for the channel on Christmas Eve 2016, while the hope is those same or betting ratings will happen for Fox Sports 1 this year.
Normally a pay-per-view event from the UFC isn’t allowed to air on free TV for 30 days after it takes place, but much like with UFC 206 last year, an exception has been made for UFC 218.
The pay-per-view replay is currently set to air from 10pm EST. to 11:30pm EST.
