Effective today, ESPN has increased the price of their standalone ESPN+ UFC PPV to $74.99 (from $69.99), and the price of the ESPN+ UFC PPV Package (which includes one PPV event and an annual subscription) also changed to $99.98 (from $89.98). The first UFC PPV event that will be affected by this price hike will be UFC 270: Ngannou vs. Gane.
UFC 270 will be the first pay-per-view event of the year and will include two fights: UFC heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou against Ciryl Gane for the main event and flyweight champ Brandon Moreno up against former champ Deiveson Figueiredo.
The price increase announced Thursday afternoon will not affect ESPN+ Monthly or Annual Subscriptions, or the price of the Disney Bundle.
Disney increased the price of a regular ESPN+ subscription in August, bringing the price to $6.99/month or $69.99/year, up from $5.99/month and $59.99/year.
