How to Watch UFC 242 on Firestick TV for free
If you are an old user of Firestick TV, then streaming anything on it shouldn’t be difficult for you whether it is via browser or through an app.
We are aware though that we still might face a few problems as most streaming channels are either paid or geo-restricted. To overcome these hurdles and to be able to watch this from anywhere and everywhere in the world, you need FastestVPN connection. If you are in the same country as the broadcaster, that is great. However, if you are not, you will need to connect to FastestVPN to change your virtual presence to match it with the requirement of the streaming channel.
To connect to FastestVPN, you can either get the client for Firestick or configure FastestVPN with a router and then connect the VPN-enabled router with Firestick. The choice is yours, whichever you deem better.
Here is how you can watch UFC on Firestick through a browser:

Broadcasting Channels for UFC 242
In 2018, ESPN won the bid for exclusive rights to UFC. The premier MMA event will now broadcast exclusively through ESPN/ESPN+ for the next five years. That rules out any confusion on your part, as you no longer have to keep track of broadcasting partners.
Get UFC PPV For Cheap Instead
If this is tedious work for you, then there is another workaround. You can still watch UFC on your Firestick but at a very cheap rate instead!
If you prefer a PPV instead, that is fine too. With a VPN you can buy PPV for cheaper by just masking your current IP and changing it to a country where it is cheaper in comparison.
To get UFC PPV + 6 month subscription at a cheap rate, use FastestVPN and connect to a server in the Philippines. By doing that you will get the UFC PPV for $18.25 instead of $29. And the UFC PPV + 6 month subscription will similarly decrease to $42.89 instead of $56.96.
Here is a list of countries and the cost of UFC PPV. You can choose the VPN server to change to, based on the chart:
The cost shown above is converted from pesos to dollars for comparison purposes.
