How to Watch Oliveira vs Makhachev Online: Live Stream UFC 280

As with other recent UFC fights, you’ll need an ESPN+ subscription to be able to buy the UFC 280 PPV live stream and watch Chimaev vs Diaz online.

Here’s a breakdown of how to get the UFC 280 PPV live stream, and how much it’ll cost depending on your current subscription status.

UFC 280 Pay-Per-View Stream

Already an ESPN+ subscriber? You’ll just need to buy the UFC 280 PPV live stream on ESPN+. This costs $74.99 for existing ESPN+ subscribers and lets you live stream Diaz vs Chimaev on any device.

ESPN+ Subscription + UFC 280 PPV

If you’re not an ESPN+ subscriber and want to watch Diaz vs Chimaev online, you’ll need to get a subscription and then purchase the PPV live stream.

The first way to do this is to sign up for a monthly ESPN+ subscription, which costs $6.99 per month, and then purchase the UFC 280 PPV live stream for $74.99 for a total price of $81.98.

ESPN+ Deal: Save $58 on UFC 280 Stream

Another way to watch UFC 280 online as a new ESPN+ subscriber is to get the ESPN+ UFC PPV bundle. This bundle includes a year of ESPN+ and one UFC PPV live stream (in this case, UFC 280).

The ESPN+ UFC bundle costs just $99.98, which breaks down to $58 in savings compared to buying an annual ESPN+ subscription (normally $69.99) and a single UFC PPV fight ($74.99) separately.

In other words, if you plan on using ESPN+ or watching any more UFC fights in the future, we recommend taking advantage of this bundle deal.

How to Watch UFC 280 Online Free

Because UFC 280 is an ESPN+ exclusive PPV match, there’s no (legal) way to live stream UFC 280 for free online.

You can watch both of these channels live without paying by getting a free trial to a live TV streaming service, such as DirecTV Stream or fuboTV, and stream UFC 280 prelims for free online.

Charles Oliveira vs Islam Makhachev Fight Preview

Nate Diaz will (finally) return to combat sports action when he collides with welterweight phenom Khamzat Chimaev in the upcoming UFC 280 pay-per-view (PPV) main event on Sept. 10 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

After going back and forth with the UFC about his contract and potential opponents, Nate Diaz’s last UFC fight may end up being his toughest task to date. On Sept. 10, Diaz faces a rising star in Khamzat Chimaev. The fight will take place inside Las Vegas’ T-Mobile Arena.

Chimaev, 28, is a three-time Swedish Nationals gold medalist. He made his pro debut in 2018 and joined the UFC in 2020, winning three fights for the promotion that year. Chimaev took the MMA world by storm with his skills and killer mindset.

Diaz, who turned 37 back in April, fell to 20-13 with a unanimous decision loss to top contender Leon Edwards at UFC 263 back in June 2021. It was the second straight loss for The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 5 champ, who’s now dropped three of his last four.

The 28 year-old Chimaev improved his undefeated record to 11-0 by outlasting former title challenger Gilbert Burns in their “Fight of the Night” war at UFC 273 last April. The victory over “Durinho” was enough to land “Borz” at No. 3 in the official welterweight rankings.
