ESPN+ UFC Fight Night Feb 17 tiles on TV app

UFC returns to action, and to the U.S. after two straight events hosted internationally, on Sunday, Feb 17 with UFC Fight Night in Phoenix, Arizona. You can watch the UFC Fight Night exclusive prelims and post show only on ESPN+.

The Early Prelims event start to stream at 5:30 p.m Eastern time. The Fight Night post show should pick up as soon as the main event ends, but it is scheduled to go live at midnight.

Fight Night prelims like this are great for hard core MMA fans who can't get enough of the action, and for casual fans and parties that want a way to ramp up the excitement heading into a main event. They also provide a chance to see some fighters for the first time when they are early in their careers. For all fight events, cards are always subject to change, but here are the current Early Prelims matchups:

  • Jessica Penne (12-5) vs Jodie Esquivel (6-4)
  • Renan Barão (34-7) vs Luke Sanders (12-3)
  • Aleksandra Albu (3-0) vs Emily Whitmire (3-2)

The UFC Fight Night post show will include highlights and analysis of the entire event, including the Ngannou vs Velasquez main event. If you have a live streaming service that includes ESPN, you can make a seamless transition from Early Prelims to the Main Event then on to the post show.

ESPN+ has caught on both as an add-on for ESPN subscribers who want more, and a stand alone service who love all the sports it has to offer. ESPN+ has its own schedule of events, with MLB, NHL, MLS, the English soccer FA Cup and so much more. ESPN+ is the place for UFC, with Early Prelims like this one for over 40 events this year.
