Strap in, folks. The next week or so on ESPN+ is going to get a little crazy.

Let's start with UFC 241 on pay-per-view on Aug. 17. Daniel Cormier takes on Stipe Miocic, and Nate Diaz faces off against Anthony Pettis. Cormier — the No. 1 pound-for-pound fighter in the UFC — and Miocic (a former heavyweight champ and the fighter with the most heavyweight title defenses in UFC history) are going for the UFC Heavyweight Championship. And in the co-main event, Pettis is the former UFC lightweight champion is a crazy-good striker. Diaz, meanwhile, is the Ultimate Fighter 5 champ and has 23 fights under his belt in the UFC.

Turning to football — yes, it's that time of year already — ESPN+ has a ton of exclusive content for fantasy players. The return of The Fantasy Football Show, daily editorials and all kinds of exclusive tools for identifying that one fantasy football sleeper that can push your team over the edge on the weekend.

Or put it this way — ESPN+ may well be the one tool in your personal fantasy football draft guide that your opponents haven't keyed on just yet. So you'd be crazy not to take advantage of it.

Soccer? Of course there's still soccer. Serie A gets going on Aug. 24 with Parma vs. Juventus. And Juventus takes on Napoli on Aug. 31. And in the MLS, get ready for the U.S. Open Cup final with defending champion Atlanta United vs. Minnesota United on Aug. 27.

Tennis? Yes, please. The U.S. Open gets going from New York on Aug. 27.

And there's still so much more on ESPN+. We're just barely scratching the surface.

ESPN+ runs $4.99 a month, or $49.99 a year. And you can try things out for a week to see how they fit. But there's a pretty good chance that once you subscribe, there's no way you'll be going back to life without it.
