UFC 297 live stream: Watch Strickland vs. Du Plessis, Pennington vs. Silva online

"UFC 297 features two title bouts in Toronto. Learn how to watch the live stream from anywhere at the best prices."

UFC 297's main card is set to feature two title bouts tonight in a co-main event card, with Sean Strickland taking on Dricus Du Plessis for the middleweight title and Raquel Pennington facing off against Mayra Bueno Silva for the women's bantamweight belt. No matter where you are in the world, we can show you how to watch the UFC 297 live stream from anywhere and detail where to find the best PPV prices near you.

UFC 297 is taking place at the Scotiabank Arena in Toronto, Canada, with a 10 p.m. ET start time for the main card. If you're interested in watching the prelim fights, you'll need to start tuning in a couple of hours earlier at 8 p.m. ET.

In the US, the main card's PPV livestream is exclusive to ESPN Plus members, but if you're outside the country, you can tap into a few international viewing options. We'll also guide you step-by-step on how to use a VPN to watch UFC 297, no matter where you are. You might even find that some international viewing options are cheaper than your home country, and a VPN is a great way to save on pricy PPV fees.

US viewers can watch the main event of UFC 297 on ESPN Plus tonight at 10 p.m. ET. The main card requires an ESPN Plus subscription ($10/month) and an extra pay-per-view fee of $80. Before the main event, fans can watch the early prelims and prelims starting at 10 a.m. ET using a $11 monthly ESPN Plus membership with no added fee (but not the main card bouts).

The ESPN Plus app is available on all the best streaming devices, including Amazon Fire, Apple, Android, Chromecast, PlayStation, Xbox, Roku, Samsung smart TVs, and more. You can also watch via online browsers.

If you're not a member and plan to sign up for ESPN Plus to watch UFC 297, you can take advantage of a discounted package.

New subscribers can purchase a one-year ESPN Plus plan with access to UFC 297 included for $134.98. An annual subscription alone usually costs $110, so you're saving a tidy sum on the $80 PPV price with this option. ESPN Plus will renew at the regular annual fee of $110 after your first year unless you cancel. Or, as mentioned earlier, you could use a VPN to take advantage of cheaper prices outside of the US.

If you're not in the US, you still have a few options to watch UFC 297. The fight is available to watch in the UK with TNT Sports, available as a £31 per month add-on for most major TV providers in the country (including BT, Discovery+, EE, Sky, and Virgin).

In the UK, these numbered UFC events are rarely locked behind an additional PPV paywall in addition to the usual subscription fee, which is fair given the main event is usually on super late. UFC 297 can be viewed as a part of a Discovery+ sub on TNT Sports (formerly BT Sport). It costs £31.99 a month for the required Premium tier (this also unlocks the Champions League, Moto GP, boxing, and more).

The Discovery Plus app is available on Android, iOS, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Chromecast, Samsung, LG, PlayStation, and Xbox. You can also stream it through any web browser. This UK app is the cheapest option by some distance when comparing international UFC 297 prices, and using a VPN is a great way to unlock it from overseas.

In Canada, UFC 297 will be available as a pay-per-view through most TV providers and directly via UFC Fight Pass. The pay-per-view costs $65.

The UFC 297 main event is available on UFC Fight Pass in most other regions, including Australia, New Zealand, Germany, Italy, Spain, Poland, Switzerland, Asia, Africa, and Brazil. Check local provider listings for other main event and prelim viewing options.

Even outside any of the above locations, you can still access the event no matter where you are with a VPN (virtual private network). These apps bypass geo-restrictions so you can stream UFC 297 through services carrying the fight without being in the US, UK, or Canada. A VPN also provides users with a more secure internet connection and protects your digital security by keeping your online activity private from your service provider and would-be snoopers.

Our top recommendation for the best VPN service is ExpressVPN. New members can get a 30-day money-back guarantee, and your first year is 49% off, plus an extra three months thrown in free. If you'd like to learn more about the app, take a look at our detailed ExpressVPN review.
