How to stream UFC Fight Night Rio Rancho even if you're outside the United States

You want to watch UFC Fight Night Rio Rancho but already have reservations to head out of the country. You might believe that you're out of luck because streaming services often block their feeds if you're not in America. Fear not.

There are ways to get things working again by using a VPN, which is short for "Virtual Private Network". It sends your internet traffic from far away through a specific set of servers, then pops it back into the United States.

Does a VPN sound appealing to you? It's easy to get a great one with subscription services that, for a few bucks a month, tunnel your traffic through your choice of a variety of locations. It can also give you security and peace of mind on open WiFi connections, because a VPN protects you against snoopers on any network.

UFC Fight Night Rio Rancho: Anderson vs. Blachowicz 2 — The Main Event Preview

Ufc Anderson and Blachowicz 2 Weigh In PoseSource: UFC on Twitter

Corey Anderson (14-4) is the fifth ranked light heavyweight fighter in the UFC, and he's spent almost his entire MMA career with the promotion. After winning the Ultimate Fighter Light Heavyweight tournament, he ran off a 4-1 start, including his first fight with Blachowicz. He had a rough run of losses in 2016-2017, but is now riding a four fight win streak including two wins over other ranked fighters.

Jan Blachowicz (25-8) is the sixth ranked light heavyweight fighter in the UFC, yet even after five years and 13 fights he is still waiting for his first UFC title fight. One big reason why that could be is his rough start when arriving in the UFC. He started out 2-4 in the promotion, and that stretch included a close unanimous decision loss to Corey Anderson. Things have been much better for Blachowicz recently. He is 6-1 in his last seven fights, with his only loss coming against second ranked Thiago Santos.

Watch Corey Anderson in action with this UFC Free Fight featuring his TKO of Johnny Walker from last November.

The UFC has been indicating that the winner of this rematch may have next up against champion Jon Jones, but it's just as likely Jones runs it back against Dominick Reyes. Still the best show that Anderson and Blachowicz have at a title will be to score a very impressive win in this fight. That extra motivation could lead to fireworks in the cage.
