There’s a lot of hype going around for this Saturday’s UFC fight between Floyd “Money” Mayweather and Conor McGregor. This will be Mayweather’s last professional boxing match and is sure to be EPIC!
But, many of you are probably searching how to watch it for free since UFC’s subscription and PayPerView prices are so expensive. Well, you have a couple options.
Watch the fight on Kodi using an add-on
The Planet MMA add-on (formerly UFC Finest) allows you to watch tons of MMA fights. A dedicated UFC addon built by Detective Kodi offers one-touch access to unlimited UFC Fight Night events including ‘The Money Fight’ between McGregor and Mayweather.
If you are not familiar with Kodi, check out my Complete Guide post to get you up to speed.
After you have Kodi up and running, you’ll need to install the “Planet MMA” unofficial Kodi add-on.
Install the Smash repo (if you haven’t already)
- Go to your Kodi File Manager (under settings)
- Select Add Source
- Enter the URL of the repo server: http://mediarepos.net/kodistuff
- Give it a name in the box below (like “Smash”)
- Now, go to My Add-ons, and select the 2 dots to go up a level until you see Install from Zip File (or you can click on Add-ons on the main menu and then select the open box icon at the top)
- Go to Install from Zip File > Smash > -SmashRepo.zip
Install Planet MMA Add-on via SMASH Wizard
- Go back to the add-on management screen and select Install from Repository > -SMASH Repo > Program add-ons > SMASH Wizard > Install
- Once that installs, it will give you a popup about saving settings. You can either dismiss it or go ahead and click Continue.
- It will then give you another popup asking if you want to install a build. Since I worry about a build loading my Kodi up with junk I don’t need, I suggest to click Ignore.
- Now, select and Open the SMASH Wizard add-on.
- Select Addon And Repo Installer > MUST HAVE VIDEO ADDONS > Planet MMA and confirm by clicking Yes.
- You should now find Planet MMA in your Video Add-ons.
Enjoy the Planet MMA add-on! Explore around it to see what’s available. FYI, they do recommend using Real-Debrid (if you’re not already) to the highest quality streaming.
Now keep in mind, on the big fight night, there will probably be a lot of other people trying to do the same thing. So, the high demand of streamers might cause the streams to buffer due to lack of server bandwidth.
So, as a backup solution, you should check out SetTV…
Sign up for a free trial of “Set TV” to watch the fight
Set TV is a premium/paid live IPTV service which is currently featuring the upcoming Mayweather vs. McGregor fight (so you can sure they’ll have it).
“But I thought this post was about watching it for free?!”, you might ask. Well, you can actually sign up for a 3-day free trial to get access to the fight and then cancel if afterwards you want.
Bypass UFC Geo-Restrictions
Keep in mind, UFC Main Card fights and live broadcasts are geo-restricted outside of their regions. You will need a VPN to bypass geo-restrictions and stream UFC matches from any corner of the world. You can get one here.
