Sports fans have flocked to the UFC for live events, even as other leagues prepare for their own return. After a strong showing with their Pay-Per-View back in May, the UFC features one of their greatest all time to defend her belt in a main event. Fans who want to watch on the greatest streaming devices can score an easy win with ESPN on Roku.
Roku devices come in a variety of price points and sizes. The Roku Streaming Stick+ is excellent, affordable, and small but any Roku will be able to stream the latest major night of MMA.
On June 6, UFC 250 is bringing twelve exciting matches from Las Vegas to fans all over. In the Main Event, two-division champion Amanda Nunes puts her featherweight belt on the line against Felicia Spencer. The Main Card also features two key matchups in the Men's bantamweight division, which carry extra weight now that Henry Cejudo retired and left the weight class without a champion.
